London footballers will be travelling to Leinster for their next championship battle, after the GAA made the draw for the qualifiers this morning.

After bowing out of the Connacht championship to Mayo last month, London will face the losers of Westmeath and Offaly who play each other in the quarter final this Sunday.

The match will be played over the weekend of June 25/26.

Westmeath will face London in Division 4 of the league next year, after being relegated with Limerick from the third tier last year.

Offaly also played in Division 3 of the league this year, and came second on points alongside Clare and Longford, but missed out on promotion to the second tier on points difference.

London avoided Ulster teams of Antrim, Down and the loser of Fermanagh/Donegal, while also evaded having to play against Wexford again, after losing 4-20 to 1-6 earlier on this year in the league.

Limerick and Longford make up the other two teams in the 1b section.

The full draw for the qualifiers is as follows:

All Ireland Football qualifiers round 1a draw

Laois v Armagh

Carlow v Wicklow

Derry v Loser of Louth/Meath

Leitrim v Waterford

Matches will take place on weekend June 18/19.

All Ireland Football qualifiers round 1b draw

Wexford v Loser of Fermanagh/Donegal

Matches will take place on weekend June 25/26.
