Derry's All-Ireland Under-21 B Hurling Championship quarter-final with Mayo at Carrick-on-Shannon will go ahead on Sunday as organisers follow the wishes of Aodhán O'Donnell's family.
Derry GAA is in mourning following the sudden death of 19-year-old O’Donnell earlier this week.
The Derry City teenager was reported missing on Sunday and his body was recovered from the River Foyle by rescuers on Friday, according to a report by the Irish News.
The Na Magha CLG player also played at inter-county level for Derry and featured in the Christy Ring Cup semi-final against Kildare in June.
He was due to play corner-forward this weekend and his family, father Gerry, mother, Maura, brother Sean and sister Ciara, have asked that the game goes ahead as planned. It is their hope that playing the game will help raise awareness around metal health issues.
"Derry GAA are devastated at the tragic death of Aodhán O’Donnell," read a statement following O’Donnell's passing.
"Aodhán was a much valued team mate and hurler at both club and county level and will be greatly missed.
"The thoughts and prayers of everyone connected with Derry GAA are with Aodhán’s family, friends and club members at this difficult time.
"Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal."
The club and O'Donnell Family would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support in what has been a very challenging week. Aodhán's funeral arrangements will be released in coming days. Go ndeánfaidh Dia trocáire Air. Na Magha agus Doire Abú.— Na Magha CLG (@NaMaghaCLG) July 13, 2018
