Derry camogs to meet Kildare in All-Ireland series

New camogie draw required after new Covid-19

Derry camogs to meet Kildare in All-Ireland series

Action from Derry's defeat to Down in Round 1

Derry will get their All-Ireland intermediate championship back on track in the 'back door' against Kildare next month, following the new-look draw on Wednesday night.

The Oakleafers were beaten by Down (1-15 to 0-9) in the opening round and were due to play Kilkenny's second team in next round.

However, in a twist last week, a new draw was required after the Republic of Ireland's Covid-19 being elevated to Level 5.

The new measures allowed elite teams and led to five county reserve teams - Dublin, Cork, Galway, Tipperary and Kilkenny -being removed from the intermediate grade.

With eight counties remaining, a revised programme was drawn on Wednesday evening.

Down, Laois and Antrim have been moved into a 'Winners' Group' after victories in their first games.  The winners of Saturday's clash of Meath and Kerry will join them.

Derry have been draw to face Kildare in the 'Losers' Group' in Round 2, after the Leinster side lost their opener to Laois, 4-14 to 1-7.
