Ulster Club Football Championship

This weekend we see action across the Ulster Club Football Championship with the remaining county finals and first round of the Ulster Quarter-finals.

Names such as Cargin, Crossmaglen, Gaoth Dobhair and Scottstown will make the similar walk they have become accustomed too over the years as stables in their own Football counties.

Two clubs will also make the walk for the very first time and the first round of the Ulster quarter-finals also taking place throughout this upcoming action-packed weekend.

Cargin v Ballygonnelly Harps-First round Ulster SFC

Current Antrim Senior Football champions Cargin regained their title this year with a victory over Lamh Dhearg in a replayed game. The Hannahstown team played in their fourth replay of the championship, unfortunately falling at the final hurdle.

Champions Cargin will now face the Fermanagh champions Ballygonnelly in the first round of the Ulster championship.

The match will be played at Corrigan Park Belfast, where Cargin regained the Antrim SFC trophy. The match will kick-off at 2:30pm.

Crossmaglen v Ballymacnab-Armagh SFC Final

Current Armagh Senior Football champions Crossmaglen Rangers will defend their title against Ballymacnab this year. The former All-Ireland club champions will take on their opponents at the Athletic Grounds with a 4pm kick-off this Sunday.

Cross will be aiming to lift their 44th Armagh title and are one of the storied club in the Ulster championship.

Glen v Magherafelt-Derry SFC Final

The final no one predicted is the one everyone wants to see. A first Derry Senior Football final in 36 years for Magherafelt and a first senior final for Glen is the talk of the town.

Both sides will fight it out for the chance to lift the Derry SFC title for the very first time. History will be made this Sunday but for most championship final, either side doesn’t have much experience to lean on going into this one.

Gaoth Dobhair v Naomh Conaill-Dongal SFC Final

Gaoth Dobhair will look to defend their Donegal Senior Football championship crown against Naomh Conaill at Mac Cumhaill Park in Ballyboffey this Sunday at 4pm.

The Donegal side Gaoth Dobhair reached the Ulster final last year only to loose out to Derry champions Slaughtneil. Can they progress to the next round?

Scottstown v Clontibert O’Neills Monaghan SFC Final

Also this Sunday reigning Monaghan Senior Football champions Scottstown welcome challengers Clontibert.

Can Conor McManus lift his side and defend his sides title? The game will be played in Clones at 3.30pm.
