Cavan and Armagh meet in the Ulster football semi-final on Sunday at 4 pm. A semi-final place with either Donegal or Tyrone await the winners. A win would do wonders for the county that wins this with the Super 8’s also been in the mind.
Cavan caused an upset in this year’s Ulster quarter-final meeting with Monaghan. The Breffni men beat Monaghan by four points. Cavan are looking for a first Ulster final appearance since 2001 as well so this is a massive game for them and the supporters. Mickey Graham is the Cavan boss and is in his first year in charge.
Armagh beat Down after extra time 2 weeks ago by one point 2-17 to 3-13. Armagh were last in an Ulster final in 2008. This will be a big game for them and they will fancy the chances of bridging that gap. Kieran McGeeney remains in charge of the Orchard County and is in his fifth season in charge.
Cavan will look to players like Padraig Faulkner, Conor Moynagh and Conor Rehill in defence. Gearoid McKiernan who was the man of the match in the Monaghan game will also need to have another big performance. In attack, Conor Madden, Martin Reilly, and Niall Murray will be key players. Armagh will look to players like Aaron McKay, Aidan Forker and Brendan Donaghy in defence, Jarlath Og Burns will likely partner Charlie Vernon in midfield. In attack, Rory Grugan, Jamie Clarke and Jemar Hall will be key players.
