Safe hands: Raymond Galligan and his Cavan team-mates will bid to shock Donegal on Sunday

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.
