TYRONE will face reigning champions Cavan in the quarter-finals of the Ulster Championship.
The draw for the provincial championship was made this evening, and it’s fair to say that Tyrone’s clash against Mickey Graham’s Cavan is the tie of the round.
The Breffni County defied the odds to win last year’s Ulster Championship for the first time since 1997, while Tyrone are always strongly fancied to do well, so it has the makings of a fantastic contest.
The teams last met in the championship was in 2019, when Tyrone eased to a 1-20 to 0-7 victory at Clones in a Round Four qualifer. Much has changed since then, however, including the departure of Mickey Harte as manager.
It will also be the first time these two teams have met in the first-round since 1983.
The full draw is as follows:
Down v Donegal (Preliminary Round)
Derry v Down/Donegal
Armagh v Antrim
Monaghan v Fermanagh
Tyrone v Cavan
