Antrim will be hoping to make up for last year's replay final defeat to Meath when their Christy Ring Cup decider against Carlow tops a Croke Park hurling triple-header on Saturday June 10.

Having defeated Carlow in the opening round, and in the Division 2A League final, the Saffrons are favourites when they renew acquaintances at (5.0), a game preceded by the all-Ulster Nicky Rackard Cup final pitting Armagh against Derry (3.0).

The Lory Meagher Cup final (1.0) between Warwickshire and Leitrim open a busy day at GAA HQ.

Meanwhile, Wexford boss Davy Fitzgerald visited O'Moore Park in Portlaoise yesterday to check out his vantage point for Sunday's Leinster SHC quarter-final against Laois.
