Antrim's CJ McGourty
All-Ireland club SFC favourites St Gall's have said that they are confident ace attacker CJ McGourty will be fit for Wednesday week's final against Kilmurry-Ibrickane at Croke Park.

Concerns have been raised over the forward's fitness for the decider because of an ongoing hip problem, but the Antrim and Ulster champions told BBC Sport that they expect McGourty, who hit 1-9 in the semi-final win over Corofin, to line-out in their first 15 on St Patrick's Day.

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that another St Gall's attacker in Rory Gallagher picked up a hamstring injury in the game against Corofin but the Fermanagh native is still expected to be available for the final.
