Derry have been playing some attractive football as of late, and in their quarter-final match they had to take on Tyrone, who were the defending champions, having won the 2021 Ulster Senior Football Championship. Many expected this to be a tough match for Derry, but they won quite comfortably in the end, and booked themselves a spot in the semi-finals against Monaghan.

Monaghan had to take on Down in their Quarter-Final match, and they won the match with minimal fuss. In fact, Banty McEnaney and his players probably did not expect the match to be such an easy one, and they will know that they will not have it that easy against Derry on the 15th of May. They will be well aware that if they fail to show their best side, then they will end up rueing what could have been.
