Antrim aiming to book Croke Park date

THE Antrim camogs can book a Croke Park date if they keep their unbeaten run up against Cork this Saturday.

The Saffrons waltzed through their Division Two group stage with a scoring difference of +51 in wins against Laois, Galway and Kerry.

They should expect a sterner test from Cork though, with the Munster side sure to be sharpened up after last weekend’s 1-13 to 0-10 quarter-final win over Galway.

Siobhan Hutchison grabbed their crucial goal and it gave them a three-point interval lead despite playing against the breeze.

Antrim had only four points to spare when Galway visited Portglenone earlier in the season, si a tight encounter is expected.

They lost to Cork last year in their only defeat on their way to the All-Ireland Intermediate title, the third time they had won the competition.

The other semi-final will see Waterford take on Wexford with the two victors getting a visit to Croke Park for the final.
