The matches will be played this weekend, June 4/5, with the dates, times, and venues to be announced later today by the CCCC.

Speaking following the draw on RTE this morning, Offaly manager John Maughan said he was looking forward to the fanfare and excitement of New York coming to Tullamore.

"I'm very, very happy to have a home game first of all. The Tailteann Cup is a great competition and we've two wins in it now, a good victory over Wicklow yesterday and last weekend down in Wexford. So we're delighted to be progressing in it. It would just be wonderful to get to Croke Park. We'll do our research on New York, we'll treat them with great respect. We're eagerly looking forward to the game."
