Ulster trio are all pumped up in respective All-Ireland final bids

Pomeroy go into tomorrow's All-Ireland Intermediate Club semi-final against St Colmcille's of Meath with a great deal of uncertainty.

Managed by Mark Harte and Adrian O'Donnell, the two Errigal Ciaran clubmen have already agreed to take over the management of Derry club Ballinderry as soon as this run comes to an end.

Pomeroy won the Tyrone Intermediate title last autumn, before progressing to defeat Donaghmoyne in the Ulster final played at the Athletic Grounds, the same venue for their last-four tie tomorrow.

Rock, a club not far from the hills of Pomeroy, are in action as the curtain raisers in Armagh tomorrow in the All-Ireland Junior semi-final against Dunedin Connollys of Edinburgh.

Their Scottish opponents have some inside knowledge, with Tyrone man Marcus McGinley a part of the management team, while they also have players Stephen McCauley, Martin Hanna and Ben McGillian.

However, Rock have a serious pedigree at this level, having reached the final in 2008.

Antrim's Lamh Dhearg are in action in Trim, Co Meath this weekend when they face Kilkenny's Mooncoin in the All-Ireland Junior Club hurling semi-final.

The Hannahstown men will look to Antrim senior star Domhnall Nugent, but have six players suspended.
