Offaly's second round qualifier opponents revealed

Offaly have been drawn to face Clare in the second round of the All-Ireland qualifier series. 

Paul Rouse and his men will be buoyed by their win against Antrim in round 1 but face a Clare side that competed well and finished third in Division 2 of the Allianz Football League.

In Championship terms, Clare come into the game after beating Limerick in the Munster quarter-final and losing to Kerry in the semi-final on a 0-32 to 0-10 scoreline.

Offaly will have the benefit of home advantage again after putting it to good use in reocrding an eight-point win over Antrim on Saturday. 

The game will take place at Bord na Mona O'Connor Park over the weekend of June 23/24. Fixture details will be confirmed later on Monday afternoon.
