THE ULSTER SENIOR football championship semi-final showdown between Donegal and Cavan will be played at St Tiernach’s Park, Clones, on Sunday 8 May.

Ulster GAA confirmed the venue and a throw-in time of 4pm last night, and The42 understands that the ladies football clash between the counties will be played beforehand.

Maxi Curran’s Donegal Ladies, who were Division 1 league runners-up last month, face Gerry Moane’s Breffni in their provincial opener [throw-in 1.45pm], with a place in the Ulster final up for grabs.

That fixture was originally scheduled for Brewster Park this Sunday, while Monaghan and Armagh face off in the other semi-final this weekend.

Declan Bonner’s Donegal and Mickey Graham’s Cavan set-up a repeat of the 2020 Ulster final after overcoming Armagh and Antrim respectively last weekend.
