The next two weekends will conclude the Provincial stage of the championship with the Connaught final between Mayo and Galway taking place this weekend and the Leinster Final between Dublin and Westmeath and Ulster Final between Donegal and Armagh taking place the following Sunday.

The All Ireland series will consist of four groups each containing three teams with the top two in each group advancing to the quarter finals.

Group 2 will consist of the Leinster Final winners, either Dublin or Westmeath, with Monaghan and Waterford the other two teams in the group.

Group 3 will include the Connaught final winners either Mayo or Galway, Kerry and the Leinster runners-up either Dublin or Westmeath.

And finally Group 4 will comprise the Ulster champions either Armagh or Donegal, the Connaught runners-up either Mayo or Galway and Tyrone.

Quarter-Final 2: 1st Group 2 v 2nd Group 3

Quarter-Final 3: 1st Group 3 v 2nd Group 2
