Cavan goalkeeper and captain Raymond Galligan does not have to step outside his own front door to fully appreciate the extent of the challenge that his side will face in Sunday's Ulster final against Donegal.
The family of his wife Niamh (nee Martin) are closely involved with the Four Masters club in Donegal Town and he accepts that there might be divided loyalties under his roof "for a couple of hours or so".
Galligan's sterling leadership, combined with his prowess as a shot-stopper between the posts and that majestic last-gasp point from a 50 metre free in the closing seconds against Monaghan have already served to make it a memorable campaign for him.
But if the Breffni side were to end their 23-year Ulster title famine at the Athletic Grounds, it would be a particularly sweet triumph for Galligan.
A busy social worker, he will go into the game conscious that Donegal have had the better of his side in recent Championship clashes.
"We might have managed to beat them once or twice in the league but they have held the upper hand in our Championship meetings over recent years," points out Galligan.
"This means that history is not quite on our side but we won't let that deter us."
The Cavan leader is in no doubt, though, that his team must avail of any goal chances that came their way if they are to have any chance of knocking Donegal off the provincial throne.
"You saw last weekend what that early second-half goal from a penalty meant to us," he states. "If on Sunday we get the chance to put the ball in the Donegal net, it's absolutely essential that we avail of it."
Just like Donegal, Cavan have benefited from the shrewd deployment of their substitutes by manager Mickey Graham. Thomas Galligan came on from the bench at half-time against Monaghan and hauled the Breffni side up off their knees in helping to plot an unlikely victory, while Conor Madden wove his magic in flamboyant style after getting the call to arms at the interval against Down.
Meanwhile, it is expected that Lenny Harbinson's successor as Antrim boss will be revealed next week.
It is understood that the John McEntee-Kevin Madden partnership is in pole position to land the role and, should their appointment be confirmed, the duo will bring considerable experience to the table.
McEntee achieved outstanding success both as player and manager with Crossmaglen Rangers and won an All-Ireland honour with Armagh in 2002. He served three years as part of the Mayo management team under Stephen Rochford, while Madden gave outstanding service to Antrim as a player and was latterly involved as part of Mickey Harte's management team in Tyrone.
It is believed that two former Tyrone players Enda McGinley and Stephen O'Neill are also interested in the role on a joint ticket, while Down's 1991 All-Ireland winning skipper Paddy O'Rourke, who has been managing Burren of late, is also understood to be interested in the post.
Antrim missed out on promotion from Division Four earlier this month and now securing a place in Division Three will be an absolute priority for the new team management.
