Monaghan suffered a shock Ulster semi-final defeat to Down in their Ulster semi-final but have come through qualifiers against Wexford and Carlow and will relish the chance to gain some revenge.

Undoubtedly the pick of the two ties is Kildare vs Armagh, as Kieran McGeeney faces off against his former county.

The game will be preceded by Down's clash with Ulster rivals Monaghan on Saturday, July 29.

Down produced a surprise result to beat Monaghan 1-14 to 0-15 in the semi-finals of the Ulster championship. Both matches will be played at a neutral venue which will be decided on Monday afternoon.

Should Armagh see off the defeated Leinster finalists, a date with Tyrone or Dublin awaits in the All-Ireland quarter-final at Croke Park. Should Kildare win they will automatically play Tyrone, while should Down win they will automatically face Dublin. If Armagh and Monaghan win, then another draw will be required next Monday.

While teams in Round 4 are typically prevented from facing sides they've already played in their provincial championship this wasn't possible for Down as they'd already played both their potential opponents in this draw.
