Kildare and Armagh will meet for the first time in the Championship, in the Round 4B qualifier draw

Kildare lost to Dublin in yesterday's Leinster final, 2-23 to 1-17 and Manager, Cian O'Neill says they were deservedly beaten.

Otherwise, however, Kildare have enjoyed an impressive year which included promotion to Division 1 of the Allianz Football League.

Cian O'Neill's says it's up to the players to keep that year going.

Armagh is managed by former Kildare manager, Kieran McGeeney.

One player who is likely to miss that game is Kildare captain Eoin Doyle.

Manager Cian O'Neill confirmed yesterday that Doyle was undergoing surgery on a broken thumb today and would "most likely" miss the game.

Whilst Kildare is likely to appeal the controversial black card meted-out to Kevin Feely in the 64th minute of yesterday's match

It is Feely's third black card, in any competition, this season.

It carries a one match ban.

If carried out, it means he will miss the qualifier, which is scheduled to take place on the weekend of July 29th and 30th.

The CCCC is to confirm the times dates and venues of this clash, and the meeting of Monaghan and Down, later today.

The winners go on to the All-Ireland quarter-finals.

=====
There's been a good start for Team Ireland on Day 4 of the World Para Athletics Championship in London.

Paul Keogan has booked his place in the final of the T37 200 metres after a third place finish in this morning's heat.

The Meath man finished in a time of 25.27 seconds.

This evening at 7.10 Jason Smyth runs in the heats of the T13 200 metres, and then an hour later Orla Comerford is in the final of the T13 100 metres.

=====

The players are starting to arrive at Royal Birkdale for this week's Open Championship.

Four Irish players will feature at the Merseyside course - former champions Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington and Darren Clarke, as well as Shane Lowry.

Graeme McDowell and Paul Dunne just missed out on the final qualifications spots up for grabs at last weekend's Scottish Open.

=====

Roger Federer has refused to confirm whether he'll be back at Wimbledon next year to defend his title.

He won his 8th singles title at the tournament - and 19th Grand Slam of his career - in a straight sets win over Marin Cilic yesterday.

Federer turns 36 next month and says while he hopes to still be playing in 2018, there's never a guarantee.

=====

There's an evening card in Killarney today.

The first is away at 6pm.
