Qualifier action continues for the Offaly senior football and hurling teams next weekend.

November 8, 2018


On Saturday evening, the footballers will host Down at O’Connor Park, with the throw-in at 7pm. And the hurlers will take on Tipperary in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise, on Sunday afternoon.


Offaly footballers advanced with a five point win over Waterford last Saturday and came out against a Down side who overcame Longford. Once Offaly hurlers defeated Limerick, they knew they would face Tipperary as they could not meet Antrim, having already played them in the Leinster Championship.


Dublin supporters can look forward to a double helping of GAA Hurling and Football action for the second weekend in a row at Croke Park.


The footballers’ clash with Armagh has been fixed for 5.00pm next Saturday, while Anthony Daly’s hurlers take on Antrim in the curtain raiser at 3.00pm.


Elsewhere, the Munster GAA Hurling Senior Championship final replay between Cork and Waterford has been fixed for next Saturday evening at 7.00pm in Thurles.


There is another GAA football All-Ireland Senior Championship Round 3 Qualifier on Saturday, with Derry taking on Kildare at 3pm.


The final GAA Football Qualifier, between Cork and Wexford, has a 3.30pm throw-in at Wexford Park on Sunday afternoon.
