Reunion with McGeeney a possibility as Kildare look at All-Ireland qualifiers
19:38 Sunday 16th of July 2017

Kildare and former manager Kieran McGeeney could be on course for a reunion following the Lilywhites' loss to Dublin in today's Leinster final.

Kildare will go into the qualifiers after the 2-23 to 1-17 defeat to the Dubs, and they will meet either Monaghan or Armagh in 13 days time as they look to secure a place in the All-Ireland quarter-finals. Armagh's win over Tipperary in round 3 of the qualifier series coupled with Monaghan's victory over Carlow means that they will be in the opposite bowl to Kildare and beaten Ulster finalists Down for tomorrow morning's draw that will be live on Morning Ireland at 8am.

McGeeney managed Kildare for six years between 2007 and 2013, leading them to an All-Ireland semi-final in 2010 where they lost in agonising fashion to Down.

Any game between Kildare and either Monaghan or Armagh is likely to take place in Navan on Saturday July 29.
