Cloughmills look to book their place in Ulster final thumbnailEoghan Rua centre half back Barry McGoldrick is carried off the field after suffering what appeared to be a hamstring injury in the win over Bredagh.

EOGHAN Rua Coleraine manager Joe Passmore will be an interested spectator when St. Brigid's Cloughmills and Armagh champions Keady do battle in Sunday's AIB Ulster Intermediate Hurling Club Championship semi-final at Owenbeg. That's because the Derry club await the winners, having coming through their semi-final against Bredagh last weekend, thanks mainly to a blistering opening spell in which they scored 1-7 without return.

“Well we know it's Cloughmills or Armagh side Keady in the final now so either one will be very difficult for us," said Joe Passmore.
“Both will have played a lot more hurling than we have and any team that comes out of Antrim like Cloughmills have will be tough.
