The draw for the quarterfinals will take place in Áras Aodh Ruadh, Father Tierney Park, Ballyshannon at approximately 17:40 on Saturday afternoon. It will be live on RnaG and it is also planned to stream it on the official Donegal Facebook page.

 

The draw will be random but with a key difference between the two sets of quarterfinals. In the championship knock-out phases, repeat fixtures are excluded. Thus, for example Kilcar cannot meet Gaoth Dobhair. This restriction will not be in force for the relegation play-offs and repeat fixtures can be played. The draw for the semi-finals of the Championship – Senior, Senior Reserve, Intermediate and Intermediate Reserve will also take place.

 

The quarterfinal draw for the Senior B championship will also be completed on Saturday. All eight of these games will be on Saturday with seven at 4:30 pm and the Aodh Ruadh v Ardara game at the earlier time of 1.30 pm. Ardara are already through to the quarterfinals and Aodh Ruadh are unable to qualify so this game does not have to be played simultaneous with the other seven.
