Tyrone will play Louth in Saturday's O'Fiaich Cup final after the Wee County made light work of neighbours Armagh at a foggy Crossmaglen in the weather-delayed semi-final.

Orchard manager Kieran McGeeney emphasised that he was pleased with the tally scored, but disappointed to have conceded so many goals on a difficult night for football.

Ciaron O'Hanlon and Eugene McVerry were pressed into action in the half-back line as Armagh fielded a skeleton side without Ciaran McKeever, Mark Shields, Kevin Dyas and others.

Conor Grimes grabbed an early goal and although Armagh were to draw level on 1-5 to 0-8, Louth held a one-point advantage at the break.

Gerard McSorley added another goal and Louth's third came from captain Adrian Reid.

Jim McEnaney, a son of former Monaghan player and manager Eamonn, began pointing frees and 45s for fun, and it was the Geraldine's clubman who had a hand in their final goal, although it might otherwise be considered an own goal.
