Donegal begin defence of Ulster title with trip to Cavan

Ulster Champions Donegal will begin the defence of their 2011 title with a tough preliminary round clash away to Cavan. Should Donegal get over the Breffni men, they will then have a mouth-watering encounter with Derry.
One of the highlight games of next year’s Anglo-Celt Cup race is undoubtedly the quarter-final clash between Tyrone and Armagh.
All-Ireland champions Dublin will open their Leinster championship campaign with a quarter-final game against either Westmeath or Louth.
In hurling, Antrim will play Westmeath in the Preliminary Round of the Leinster championship, with All-Ireland champions Kilkenny through to the semi-finals where they will play either Laois/Carlow or Dublin.
