Dromore face real challenge in bid to end Ulster's All-Ireland drought
Dromore face an unenviable task in their bid to become the first Ulster team to win the All-Ireland Junior Cup since 2010 as they travel to Cork to take on Crosshaven in the semi-finals.

Dromore, the province's last remaining hope, will come up against a side who have already eliminated Instonians and Ballyclare away from home.
Crosshaven are a typical junior Munster team with a massive pack including the influential James Kind at No.8, and a kicking out-half in Cian McGovern. They seldom spread the ball further than their big centres.
Dromore had a particularly hard-fought encounter against Instonians on Saturday and won 21-19 despite having a penalty count of 24 to six against them as their rucking displeased the referee.
Director of Rugby Jeremy Ogle said: "We have put in a lot of work to rectify the problem and know we can come home with a win but need to win the forward exchanges and use our wingers."
Dromore, who reached this stage with home wins over Newcastle West (38-10) and Grosvenor (47-7), make one change from last week as second-row Ross Bingham is unavailable and will be replaced by the experienced Johnny Maguire.
They have Ulster junior half-backs Lee Steenson and David Lyttle in action, and the experience of former Malone star Josh Pentland in the centre.
