The GAA confirmed on Tuesday evening that Roscommon will face Leinster champions Dublin in their opening round of the All-Ireland Series in Croke Park on Saturday, May 25th.

The game is set to throw-in at 5 pm and it will be shown live on GAAGO.

It was also announced that the match will be part of a double header in which the Roscommon U-20 hurlers will play Down in the All-Ireland B Hurling Championship final for the Richie McElligott Cup, with that game set to get underway at 3 pm.

Davy Burke’s men will face Connacht runners-up, Mayo, in the second round the following weekend and details of that game will be confirmed by the GAA early next week.
