Leitrim won the FBD Connacht League for the first time with a 0-8 to 0-5 win over Sligo in the final at Markievicz Park.

They led by 0-5 to 0-2 at the interval, with Ray Cox, Emlyn Mulligan and Danny Beck hitting their scores.

Adrian Marren and Brian Egan narrowed the gap as the home side fought back, but a stoppage-time point from Brian McDonald proved to be the decisive score.

In hurling, Clare turned on the style in the second half to defeat UL by 3-13 to 1-13 in the Waterford Crystal Cup, with Nicky O'Connell, Seadna Morey and Alan O'Neill getting their goals.

Joe Canning was in sparkling form as Galway defeated Carlow by 2-15 to 1-9 in the Walsh Cup.

He scored his side's opening goal and set up the second for Damien Hayes to inspire the Tribesmen to a comfortable win.

Wexford came from behind to defeat Offaly by 1-24 to 1-15.

Derek Molloy scored an early Offaly goal but Wexford finished strongly with Mark Fanning sealing victory with a late goal.
