Tipperary’s senior football championship campaign resumes on Saturday, June 30 when they take on Offaly in the first round qualifiers.

The game will be played at a Tipperary venue.

The draw was made on RTE radio on Monday morning and it could have been unkinder to Tipperary.

Offaly have now gone five years without a Leinster championship win and lost heavily to Kildare last Sunday.

Tipp boss Peter Creedon will look forward to the challenge following his side’s encouraging display against Kerry in the Munster championship when they were far from disgraced against the Kingdom.
