Donegal and Cavan clash postponed

By Michael McMullan

DONEGAL and Cavan ladies have had their Ulster semi-final postponed this weekend.

The tie will now take place on Sunday, May 8 as part of a double header with the Cavan v Donegal mens’ Championship semi-final.

Donegal completed a three-in-row in 2019 before opting out of the championship the following year and lost out to Armagh in last year’s final, a 3-12 to 3-11 thriller decided by Fionnuala McKenna’s point with six minutes to play.

Maxi Curran’s side ousted Dublin in the league this season before going to down to All-Ireland champions Meath in the final.

Cavan have not won the Ulster title since their two-legged final win over 1977 and more recently lost the 2016 decider at the hands of Monaghan.

The Breffni girls lost by a point to Monaghan in the opening game of this year’s league and after a comprehensive defeat to Armagh they needed a 3-11 to 1-12 win over Tyrone to avoid a relegation final at the bottom of Division Two.

While putting the game back will leave both the Cavan and Donegal camps to rejig their preparations, it gives the players a chance to play in front of considerable crowd at Clones.

The prize for the winners is a spot in the decider against Monaghan or Armagh who face off this weekend.
