After just one weekend of football championship action seven teams are already in the draw for the group stages of the Tailteann Cup.

Confirmed so far are Antrim, Carlow, Leitrim, London, Longford, Waterford, Wexford. 

The Tailteann Cup will have 17 teams taking part. New York’s win over Leitrim put them one victory away from the Sam Maguire Group stages. 

The original plan for the Tailteann Cup was for New York to play in the preliminary quarter-final rather than the group stages, Should they progress to the Connacht final then they will take part in the group stages of the Sam Maguire competition, and the Tailteann Cup will then be made up of three groups of four teams and one group containing five counties.
