Tyrone awaits in the quarter-final

Monaghan and Cavan will meet in the Ulster preliminary round game as the draw for the 2024 championship was made.

The two sides were the first two names from the hat. The last time the sides met in the championship was 2020, when Cavan went onto win the Ulster title.

The winner of the game will face Tyrone in the Ulster quarter-final. The remaining three games will see Down face Antrim, Fermanagh meet Armagh and defending champions Derry face Donegal.

The championships will follow the same format as 2023 with 16 taking part in the All-Ireland championship group stage (Sam Maguire).
