Monaghan are the only team in the last 4 as either best runner up or group winner

In the Bank of Ireland Dr. Mc Kenna cup, the final round of group games this Saturday will determine the semi final pairings. Monaghan will have a last 4 place to look forward too as either the best runner up or winner of their group. They currently top Group C on 3 points ahead of Derry who would need to defeat Fermanagh by 6 points or more to go through as winners. Group B sees Cavan and Armagh vying for the top spot. The Orchard County will face Tyrone on Saturday knowning a win or draw will see them through, however should the All Ireland champions bounce back from their heavy defeat to Cavan with a victory, the Breffni counties superior score difference could be enough to see them into the last 4. Group A will see a winner take all as Donegal face Antrim with both sides have registered wins over Down. With both sides having the same score difference a draw would make for an interesting determination as to who would qualify. The semi final pairings draw will take place after the completion of the games on Saturday with repeat pairings been avoided.
