The Carnacon girls are looking to make it back to the final of the competition for the first time since 2013 as they go looking to claim their sixth All Ireland title.

Moy Davitts were crowned county intermediate champions after a dramatic replay victory against neighbours Kiltimagh last Saturday evening in Elverys McHale Park.

The sides will meet again this Sunday in the same venue at 2pm, with extra time and the potential of a point scoring shoot-out to follow if it is still level, and after these sides combined for a total of 11-31 last time out the smart money might be on just that outcome.
