National Football League fixtures announced

Armagh will have four home games in their upcoming Division Two National League campaign in the 2024 season.

Kieran McGeeney’s side were relegated from the top tier this year after a number of close shaves in Division One.

Ultimately, a two-point defeat to arch-rivals Tyrone in the final round of the league sealed their fate.

The Orchardman begin their Division Two series with two home games against Louth and Meath.

They face the Wee County for the first time since 2017, when both sides were competing in Division Three.

They haven’t hosted Louth since 2015 however and they’ll face Meath in the league for the first time since 2019.

Round three sees McGeeney’s charges on the road as they take on Geezer’s former team Kildare.

McGeeney has came up against the Lilywhites plenty of times during his tenure with his native county.

Silverbridge manager Colm Nally has joined the Kildare setup this season as well, adding to Glen Ryan’s management team.

Armagh have a third home game in round four as they welcome Jim McGuinness’ Donegal to down.

The sides clashed in the BOX-IT Athletic Grounds this year, with the home side winning 0-13 to 0-10.

They then travel to Brewster Park in round five, a trip that Orchard followers will experience twice this year.

Armagh have also been drawn against Fermanagh in the opening round of the Ulster Championship. The Erne men will once again enjoy home advantage.

Armagh’s final home game of the 2023 NFL campaign will come against another Ulster opponent, Cavan.

McGeeney’s side proved too strong for the Breffni men when they locked horns in last year’s provincial championship.

Armagh finish their campaign in Cork and fans will have a long trek ahead of them as they head south.

These two teams last met in 2019, when the Rebels came north and left with two-points, winning 3-9 to 1-14.
