Team news:

Former Armagh half-forward Martin O’Rourke has been added to the Faugh’s management team as they try to make their mark in this year’s championship. Colm Donnelly has appointed Mark Treanor, the Monaghan hurler, and Ferghal Malone as joint-captains. Ciaran Hanratty is travelling up from Dublin to be involved this year while Dermot Malone and full-forward Darren Daly are key men. ‘Blayney have been getting huge numbers at training this season with the younger players in the club keen to step up and push for a place. ’Blayney haven’t reached the semi-final stage since 2015. They will be well set up and if they can get the ball from back to front quicker, they could cause a few surprises.
