Tyrone will lock horns with old foes Donegal in the first round of next year’s Ulster Senior Championship at Ballybofey.
It’s the toughest possible draw for Mickey’s Harte men.
Declan Bonner’s outfit are gunning for a hat-trick of provincial titles and this past season defeated the Red Hands comprehensively in the semi-final at Breffni Park.
Tyrone have a poor track record at MacCumhaill Park over the years but they did prevail in the last clash there, a Super Eight meeting in 2018.
Whichever team emerges victorious from that heavyweight clash will meet the winner of the first round clash between Armagh and Derry in the semi-finals.
Down have meanwhile been drawn against Fermanagh while the winner of the preliminary tie between Monaghan and Cavan will take on Antrim in the last eight.
