Derry's Ulster camogie semi-final against Antrim will go ahead on the same day as the county's Ulster SFC game with Donegal, it has been confirmed.

When the fixture lists came out earlier in the season, both games were scheduled for Sunday, May 27.

The football game is fixed for Celtic Park (4.00) with the camogie team set to face Antrim in Ahoghill (2.30) on the same day.

An appeal was lodged to the Ulster camogie board to have the game changed to the previous day, Saturday May 26 on the grounds that the clash would  affect camogie game's attendance.

Derry were told by the Ulster camogie board, that an alternative date would only be granted if Antrim were in agreement to the change.

Antrim have not agreed and the Ulster camogie board have informed Derry their game goes ahead on Sunday as planned, with the 2.3o throw-in preventing Derry supporters attending both games.

Coleraine's Grainne McGoldrick is on the Derry camogie squad and her brothers Liam and Sean Leo will be in action for the footballers at Celtic Park.

Derry are the current Ulster camogie champions, beating Antrim in the final last season at Swatragh.
