The GAA have confirmed that the All-Ireland second round qualifier clash between Leitrim and Louth will be played on Saturday, June 23 in Pairc Sean MacDiarmada with a 7pm throw-in.

The sides last met in 2016 in Division 4 of the Allianz National League with Leitrim emerging victorious on a scoreline of 0-16 to 2-9.

Louth however were to have the last laugh as they went on to secure promotion that year, defeating Antrim in the Division 4 Final.

The sides previously met in Qualifier action in 2015 when the 'Wee County' emerged victorious on a scoreline of 1-15 to 0-11.

Louth booked their place in the second round of the qualifiers after they recorded an impressive 2-26 to 1-19 win over London in McGovern Park, Ruislip yesterday.

It is expected that the third round of the Connacht Minor Championship clash between Leitrim and Roscommon which is scheduled for a 5pm throw-in on the same day will serve as a curtain raiser to the qualifier match.
