The scene is set for what promises to be a cracking Ulster decider at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones, a game that will be live-streamed online by BBC Sport NI.  

Armagh are the holders and they were majestic against Monaghan in the semi-finals, putting 5-21 past their outclassed opponents.  

In their semi-final win over Cavan, Susanne White was a late introduction to the starting line-up and she scored 2-3 as Donegal racked up a 3-19 to 1-11 success.  

Those victories for Armagh and Donegal helped to erase some of the heartbreak of their Lidl NFL Finals losses.  

Armagh, who are aiming for a third successive Ulster crown, fell to Kerry in the Division 2 decider, as Donegal lost out to Meath in the Division 1 showpiece.  

The winners of this tie will join either Dublin or Meath in Group 2 of the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship, which also contains Monaghan, while the provincial runners-up will go into Group D, along with Cork or Kerry, and Waterford.  

Armagh: A Carr; S Grey, C McCambridge, C Towe; N Marley, L McConville, G Ferguson; B Mackin, C O’Hanlon; E Lavery, N Coleman, C Marley; A Mackin, A McCoy, K Mallon (capt.).  

Donegal: R McCafferty; N Carr, E McGinley, T Kennedy; S Twohig, Nicole McLaughlin, A Boyle Carr; K Herron, Niamh McLaughlin (capt.); Y Bonner, N Hegarty, S White; B McLaughlin, K Guthrie, G McLaughlin.
