GAA confirms Monaghan to have home advantage against Galway; Donegal and Dublin agree to neutral venue

The GAA has confirmed the venue arrangements for the upcoming Allianz Football League semi-finals and relegation play-offs.

All the ties will be held on the weekend of June 12-13.

Despite protests from Galway manager Padraic Joyce, Monaghan will have home advantage when the Farney County meet the Tribesmen.

Meanwhile, several counties have agreed to a neutral venue rather than a coin-toss for home advantage. Donegal-Dublin, Derry-Limerick and Cavan-Wicklow will all take place at neutral grounds.

In the case of counties meeting, where one team played twice at home during the group stages, and the other had two away games, the latter will host the contest.

Dates, times and venues will be confirmed later on Monday.
