Monaghan have been drawn to face Ulster provincial rivals Armagh in round two of the All-Ireland Football qualifiers.

Tyrone will face Longford, Antrim play Kildare, Mayo take on Down and Derry will play Laois, with those ties scheduled for Saturday 22 June.

Tyrone travel to their Division Three opponents after losing to Donegal.

The dates, venues and throw-in times for the games were announced by the GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee on Tuesday afternoon.

Antrim are to host Kildare at Corrigan Park at 15:00 BST on 22 June, subject to an inspection and safety certification.

Tyrone will face Longford at 17:00 at Pearse Park, with Derry's fixture with Laois having the same throw-in time at Owenbeg.

Monaghan v Armagh at St Tiernach's Park and Down v Mayo at Pairc Esler will both start at 19:00.

The Red Hands' defeat by Donegal in the Ulster semi-final means that Mickey Harte's side must navigate their way through the qualifiers if they are to secure a place in the Super 8s and maintain their hopes of reaching an All-Ireland final for the second consecutive time.

Armagh face a testing trip to Clones following their Ulster semi-final replay reverse at the hands of Cavan, who defeated Monaghan at the quarter-final stage of the Ulster Championship.

Antrim, Down, Derry and Monaghan all made it through the first round of qualifiers last weekend.
