The draw could have been kinder to Donemana, whose only win in the famous tournament came when they beat Limavady back in 2000. They are the last team from the North West to make the final, losing to Leinster way back in 2009. Can the Holm side break the recent hoodoo?

They have been one of the form sides in the early stages of the rain-affected season, with new professional Rumesh Buddhika settling in well, alongside new signing Raymond Curry. Skipper Gary McClintock has been pleased with his team’s form this campaign, but acknowledges they have a severe test ahead of them as they make the journey to Anglesea Road.

“We know it will be a very tough game but we have to believe we can win it and give 100 percent with bat and ball,” McClintock told the Chronicle.
“We will be missing our wicket keeper Billy Dougherty as his wife's grandad passed away, and Irish passport holding Australian David O’Sullivan will not be with us until next week. That would have been an advantage if he was here to open the bowling for us. “Our professional Rumesh Buddhika looks very good and we have started the season well so hopefully we can go down there and get a win.”

For the other Tyrone teams in the cups the draw also could have been kinder. Killyclooney face two times winners Clontarf, while in the National Cup, Burndennett take on three-times champions Rush in the National Cup.
Also in the National Cup, Fox Lodge are on the road to Ballymena, while Strabane face a long trek to Farmers Cross where Cork Harlequins await.
