Reigning champions Dublin have been grouped with Waterford and Donegal in the round-robin phase of the 2020 TG4 All-Ireland Ladies Senior Football Championship.
The structure of the tournament was revised last week, as the season was shortened due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Dublin, Cork, Galway and Mayo were seeded, and thus kept apart in the four groups of three.
Mick Bohan’s charges are chasing a fourth consecutive crown.
Galway, the 2019 runners-up, have been drawn with last year’s intermediate winners Tipperary and Monaghan, while 11-time senior champions Cork will battle it out with Munster rivals Kerry and Ulster representatives Cavan.
Ulster sides Armagh and Tyrone have both been drawn together alongside 2019 semi-finalists Mayo.
The four teams topping their respective groups will progress straight through to the All-Ireland semi-finals, with the first team in Group 1 facing off against the Group 2 table-toppers, while the Group 3 winners will play the top team in Group 4.

In the Intermediate Championship, Westmeath will hope for a swift return to the senior ranks following relegation last year.
The Lake County find themselves in an all-Leinster Group 2 alongside Longford and Louth, who were Junior Champions last year.
Meath, beaten Intermediate finalists in 2018 and 2019, will battle it out with Leitrim and Down in Group 3, while Group 1 is made up of Roscommon, beaten semi-finalists in 2019, and Leinster counties Offaly and Wexford.
With 13 teams involved in the Intermediate Championship, Group 4 is a group made up of four counties, namely Sligo, Clare, Kildare and Laois.
The top team in Group 1 following the round-robin phase will play the Group 2 winners in the All-Ireland semi-finals, while the leading teams in Groups 3 and Group 4 will contest the other semi-final.
Westmeath, Meath, Sligo and Roscommon were seeded for the intermediate draw.

The top two teams in each group will contest the All-Ireland semi-finals, with the Group 1 winners facing the Group 2 runners-up, while the Group 2 table-toppers will face the second-placed team in Group 1.
