The CCCC have confirmed the throw in times for this Saturday's third round qualifiers in the All-Ireland senior football championship, with Mayo to host Armagh at Elvery's MacHale Park in Castlebar, with throw in at 7pm.

James Horan's side ground out a five point win against Down in Newry on Saturday night, while Armagh dumped last year's All-Ireland semi-finalists Monaghan out of the championship, with an impressive win at Clones.

Mayo will be hoping corner forward Cillian O'Connor could return to action for the game in Castlebar, having failed to recover from injury in time for the win against Down.

"He'll be training very hard, pushing for inclusion next weekend," Horan said.

He added: "It's great that he's back. He had a bad injury, he's working with a great medical crew so he's just trying to get him back.

"He was out for a number of months. James Carr also is very close, there's around five players in contention."

Elsewhere St Conleth's Park in Newbridge has been confirmed as the venue for Kildare's meeting with last year's beaten All-Ireland finalists Tyrone.

Both sides comfortably booked their place in round three with respective wins away to Antrim and Longford.

They'll throw in at 5pm in Newbridge.

There will be a 7pm start at O'Moore Park in Portlaoise, where neighbours Laois and Offaly will hope to move within one step of a place in the Super 8s.

TEG Cusack Park in Mullingar will host the meeting of Westmeath and Clare at 6pm.

Jack Cooney's side have bounced back from their Leinster exit with wins easy against Waterford and Limerick, while Clare were nine point winners away to Leitrim on Saturday.

The winners of this Saturday's qualifiers will move through to round four, where they will stand to face one of Cork, Galway, Meath and Cavan, all of whom were beaten in provincial finals.
