Kildare reunion with Kieran McGeeney confirmed as Lillies draw Armagh in All-Ireland qualifiers
8:48 Monday 17th of July 2017

Kildare will play Armagh in round 4b of the All-Ireland qualifiers after the Lilywhites were drawn against the Ulster side in this morning's live draw on RTÉ radio.

It means that a reunion with former manager Kieran McGeeney is on the cards as the Armagh native is in his third season in charge of the Orchard County, and there will be plenty of hype generated in the 12 days between now and the game. McGeeney managed Kildare for six years between 2007 and 2013, and the qualifier route to the latter stages of the All-Ireland Championship was something that the Lilywhites became well accustomed to during his time at the helm.

His tenure was ended in controversial fashion in 2013 when a county board vote say him ousted from the hotseat, with 29 delegates voting against 28 in favour of letting McGeeney go.

The clash between the two counties will take place on Saturday July 29, with the winners will go on to play in the All-Ireland quarter-finals. Time and venue has yet to be confirmed, but it will most likely be in Navan.
