Antrim completed their Hurling League Division 2A campaign with a 1-21 to 1-19 defeat by London on Sunday.

The Saffrons had already missed out on promotion before the Ruislip game, which saw the Exiles pull clear after a tight opening 20 minutes.

London led 0-15 to 0-11 at the break and ran out two-point winners despite a late Niall McKenna goal for Antrim.

Derry are relegated to Division 2B after losing 2-18 to 1-16 against Kildare in Newbridge.

Down have progressed to the Division 2B decider thanks to a 2-17 to 1-13 victory over Meath at Ballycran.

The Mourne men will meet Armagh in an all-Ulster final, with the Orchard side earning their place following a 1-17 to 1-10 success against Mayo at the Athletic Grounds.

Antrim are back in competitive action on 23 April when their Christy Ring Cup campaign starts against Kildare.
