All the latest news from Ulster



The quarter finals of the Ulster intermediate
and junior club championships take place on Saturday
with a total of eight games scheduled. In the
intermediate championship all games are fixed
for 2-30pm. Armagh champions Crossmaglen will
be looking to the O Donnell twins to inspire them
as they take on Loughinisland (Down). Moneyglass
(Antrim) won the provincial junior title last
year and as a result are promoted to the higher
grade. They face a tough challenge against Aghyaran

Former All-Ireland junior champions Tyholland
(Monaghan) will have home advantage for their
tie against Glenfin (Donegal). The final game
of the quarter finals sees Newtownbutler (Fermanagh)
playing Derry champions Ardtrea. The junior ties
are equally mouthwatering. Brookeboro (Fermanagh)
have home advantage for their game with Mourne
champions Aughlisnafin. Monaghan’s Inniskeen are
on the road again. Last week they easily beat
Donegal outfit Kilcar and today they travel to
Lavey (Cavan).

It’s a 1-30pm start for the game between Ballinascreen
(Derry) and St. Pauls (Antrim). John Mc Eldowney
and Rory Mc Gilligan have the Derry side firing
on all cylinders and they won their county final
by an amazing 13 points. St. Pauls are the first
Belfast side to win the Antrim title and they
will be hoping for an extended run in the championship.

The last game of the round is more of a local
derby as Moy (Tyrone) and Ballyhegan (Armagh)
meet at 4pm. All home PRO’s should text the result
of the games to the Ulster PRO Paul Swift at either
07703 594984 or 087 7463676

The Ladies Sevens hosted by St Malachy’s GAC Castlewellan
Co Down will take place this year on Saturday
9th October. The date was put back from Saturday
14th August at the request of a number of senior
teams because of County Championship and league
commitments during August and September. Teams
from Antrim, Armagh, Cavan, Derry, Down, Dublin
and Monaghan and Louth are among the top Clubs
already committed to competing for the May Steele
perpetual trophy which was won last year by Clann
Eireann from Armagh. Any other senior Ladies Clubs
interested in entering should contact the Club
Secretary on 07714232783 email
or visit the Castlewellan Club website at

One other game of note on Saturday is the replay
of the Tyrone county final between Carrickmore
and Aodh Rua in Kileeshil at 1pm. Last week the
Dungannon side led from the start, went a point
behind in the dying minutes and then equalised
in injury time. If the replay is half the game
the first one was then it should not be missed.
Both sides have a wealth of talent and the winner
will have a realistic chance of Provincial honours.
