Antrim team to play Donegal: - For a few years there Antrim picked almost exclusively from St Galls, Cargin and Lamh Dhearg so retirement, unavailability and injuries etc are giving players from other clubs a chance at Championship level.  Although we were relegated to Div 4 with the last kick of the game against Longford, we were competitive in all the games except the Offaly match.  This is a youngish team with a few old heads still on board and I know from speaking to people around the county that there are high hopes for some of them to blossom into very good players.  Sunday might be a bit too early for them.   Donegal to win pulling up and Antrim with a reasonable draw could win a qualifier or two.

2 Conor Hamill  (Glenavy)
3 Patrick Gallagher (Glenavy)
4 Peter Healy (St Enda's)

It really is a much changed Donegal team.......will be a fine achievement if they win Ulster.

Donegal team (whether that is the one that lines out is another issue. Lacey, for example):

It would be. Think it might be too soon though. A lot of these boys are untested at senior championship level.

Not many of the 2012 starting, I make it just the 5 of them starting with 3 more on the bench. Looks like there's a lot of change from last year so in fairness its a big ask for Donegal to win Ulster.

Is Gillespie injured?

Superb from Antrim minors as they beat Donegal 0-21 to 2-14 AET. Senior game will be delayed.

Apparently Donegal rather fortunate to be up five points at the half. Antrim missed a couple of decent goal chances.

Yep, when Paddy McGrath chips in with a goal, it's well and truly done and dusted.
