The draw for the Kildare Senior, Intermediate and Junior Football Championship's took place on Saturday afternoon with a series of intriguing ties drawn up.

The names were drawn out  in St.Conleth's Park between the Ladies National Football League Tie involving Kildare and Meath and the Kildare and Tipperary Allianz National League game.

On the Senior front the stand out meeting is the game between Athy and Sarsfields in a repeat of last year's quarter final and with Davy Burke now in charge of the Sash, it will be interesting to see how they get on.

Elsewhere Naas and Moorefield is another fascinating tie while there are two local derbies involving Maynooth and Celbridge and Carbury and Johnstownbridge.

Two Mile House will also mark their debut at this level against Confey.

The Intermediate looks as competitive as ever with Clogherinkoe and Kilcock meeting in the first round for the second consecutive year while Ballyteague and St.Kevin's meet in another repeat clash from last years Championship.

Last year's beaten finalists Monasterevan take on Straffan while Leixlip return to this grade for the first time in many years with a game against Sallins.

Keogh Cup winners Allenwood will open up their campaign with a tie agianst Kill.

Lastly the Junior Championship is split into two groups and this year it will involve five on each side with Ardclough returning to Championship action.

The 2017 Champions Ballymore Eustace are in Group A with last year's beaten finalists Rheban in Group B.
