Antrim Senior Hurling Championship Final

Sunday September 13

Dunloy v Loughgiel Shamrocks, Ballycastle, 2.45pm

O'Callaghans Mills v Ballyea, Cusack Park, 3pm

In recent years Eire Og have struggled at the quarter-final stage so the win over Feakle provides an injection of confidence.

The Ennis club have plenty of capable performers including David Reidy and Shane O'Donnell.

Sixmilebridge, though, with Davy Fitzgerald involved on the line, continue to deliver impressive displays in the Banner county.

O'Callaghans Mills are enjoying an encouraging campaign, but will be fully aware of the threat posed by the Tony Kelly inspired Ballyea.

Tony Kelly remains an influential figure for Ballyea.
