ANTRIM SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI-FINALS
CREGGAN V CARGIN
Saturday, Dunsily, 5pm
THIS eagerly anticipated clash could go right to the wire. Cargin lost their stranglehold on the Antrim title with a semi-final defeat to eventual champions Creggan last year. This is the one they’ve been waiting on, but you can’t write off Creggan either.
PORTGLENONE V AGHAGALLON
Sunday, Dunsily, 5pm
BOTH teams will view this as a massive opportunity to advance to the final. Portglenone justified their favourites tag with a win over Gort na Mona in the quarters, while last year’s beaten finalists Aghagallon have improved after a poor league campaign.

GLENRAVEL V SARSFIELDS
Saturday, Dunsilly, 1pm
GLENRAVEL have had a great campaign and are unbeaten since the start of this year’s championship. Sarsfields, meanwhile, can boast a similar tale, topping their group with three wins from three before passing their quarter-final test against St Paul’s. It’s a toughie.
DAVITT’S V DUNLOY
Sunday, Dunsilly, 1pm
DAVITT’S did extremely well to claim a victory against unbeaten Glenavy in the last eight. Opponents Dunloy have had a fine campaign and qualified for the semi-finals with a two-point win over Aldergrove.

O’DONNELLS V EIRE OG
Saturday, Pauic MacRuairi, 3pm
EIRE Og did well to nab a win against Laocha Loch Loa in the quarters, their third win over that team this season. Maybe they can take the next step and reach the final.
Verdict: Eire Og
ST MALACHY’S V NA PIARSAIGH
Saturday, Cherryvale, 3pm
PEARSES justified their favourites tag with a win over St Agnes in the quarter-finals. St Malachy’s have also defeated St Agnes back in the group stages. A tough one to call.
Verdict: St Malachy’s
