This Sunday's Dr McKenna Cup semi-finals will go ahead as planned.
Donegal manager Declan Bonner claimed last night that they'd be unable to field a team against Monaghan due to players being on Sigerson Cup duty.
"Talking to the medical team in there, a lot of those guys are playing a lot of football", he told Highland Radio.
"This is crazy stuff that some of these guys could be playing four matches in the space of 10 days. It’s very, very difficult. In terms of player welfare we have got to be very careful. At this stage we don’t have the numbers to field".
Down had asked for their semi-final with Tyrone to be switched to next Tuesday but Ulster Council have ruled that the matches will be played on Sunday following a meeting of their Council Competition Control Committee.
Armagh's Athletics Grounds will play host to the clash of Down and Tyrone with Donegal and Monaghan meeting at Brewster Park with both games at 2pm.
