Slaughtneil's Ulster hurling semi final against Dunloy of Antrim will go ahead as originally fixed in mid-December.

There had been speculation the fixture may have been brought forward following the Emmet's football championship defeat to Glen at the weekend.

However, the Ulster Council confirmed last night that the game would go ahead as planned on Sunday December 12.

The date gives Slaughtneil captain and talisman Cormac O'Doherty a fighting chance of playing some part in the fixture, after sustaining a shoulder injury in their county final victory over Kevin Lynch Hurling Club.

Derry intermediate hurling champions Banagher will play either Castleblayney or Middletown in the Ulster semi final over the weekend of December 11/12.

In the Ulster junior championship, Derry side Na Magha will travel to Breffni Park for a clash with Cavan champions Cootehill at 4.00pm on November 27.

In the football, newly-crowned Derry senior champions Glen will take on St Eunan's Letterkenny at the Donegal side's home pitch, O'Donnell Park on Sunday November 21 at 1.30pm.

Intermediate winners Steelstown will compete at the same venue the previous day, taking on either Cloughaneely or Dungloe at 1.30pm.

Back-to-back Derry junior winners Desertmartin face a trip to Brewster Park to take on Fermanagh champions St Patrick's Donagh on November 28 with a 3.30pm throw-in.
