Dinny Cahill's Antrim team face a qualifier against Limerick

Antrim's All-Ireland Hurling qualifier against Limerick will be played on Saturday at Parnell Park (1900 BST).

The Saffrons were drawn first out of the hat for Saturday's game but their hopes of being handed a home venue have not materialised.

Antrim footballers play Carlow in a qualifier at Casement Park on Saturday (1500) and there had been speculation that a double-header could be staged.

Saturday's other hurling qualifier sees Cork facing Galway in Limerick (1600).

The prize for the winners will be places in the All-Ireland quarter-finals.

The Saffrons secured a 10th straight Ulster title on Sunday.
