Clones to host Donegal v Cavan double-bill

Clones has been confirmed as the venue for Donegal’s Ulster senior football semi-final against Cavan on Sunday, May 8th.

The match will have a 4pm throw-in – and will be broadcast live on Ocean FM, in association with Donegal Plumbing & Heating.

It will be the counties first championship meeting since the 2020 Ulster final, which Cavan won in dramatic fashion.

They beat Donegal 1-13 to 0-12 in that final to end a 23-year wait for an Ulster title and, in the process, deny the Tir Chonnaill men a three-in-a-row of provincial titles.

Sunday week’s game will form part of a double-bill with the women’s Ulster semi-final between the same two counties.

Maxi Curran’s Donegal will face the Breffni women at St Tiernach’s Park at 1:45pm.

The second men’s Ulster semi final between the eventual winners of Monaghan v Down and Derry v Tyrone will be played at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh on Sunday, May 15th, also at 4pm.

The Ulster final this year will take place on May 29th.

It will be preceded by the Ulster minor football final.
