Derry junior hurling final cancelled

The Derry junior hurling final due to take place at the weekend has been cancelled.

Eoghan Rua had been due to take on Na Magha at Owenbeg on Sunday in the junior decider, but the north coast side have informed the city men they have conceded the game.

Last Sunday, Coleraine's footballers exited the senior football championship after a bruising encounter with Slaughtneil.

Having won the Ulster junior championship in 2019, Eoghan Rua would not have been able to represent the county in the provincial competition even if they had overcome Na Magha on Sunday.
