It’s back-to-back away games in rounds three and four for Kieran McGeeney’s men and it’s a two tough games.

Kieran McGeeney’s side have two home games on the bounce, with Donegal coming up on Saturday 4 March.
The two teams have developed a great rivalry over the years and Armagh finally got one over their old foes in 2022.
Armagh will then host Galway in their final home game of the league, in a repeat of last year’s dramatic All-Ireland quarter final.
Padraic Joyce’s side edged out Armagh on penalties as the pair served up what was undoubtedly the game of the season.
In the final round of the league, it’s on the road once again for Armagh as they take on old rivals Tyrone.
This same clash spark scenes of excitement last season when the Orchard overturned the then All-Ireland champions.

That game, if both teams need points on the final day, has the potential to be a real cracker.
