Roscommon to find out their All-Ireland Series opponents this afternoon

The Roscommon senior footballers will find out who they will face in the All-Ireland Football Championship round-robin series for the Sam Maguire at 1pm this afternoon.

Davy Burke’s men are in Pot 3 in the draw and will face a provincial champion in the opening round away from home. They will then play a home game against one of the provincial runners-up in Round Two and they will finish with a game against a team from Pot 4 at a neutral venue in Round Three.
