Maghery will provide the opposition for either Crossmaglen Rangers or Cullyhanna in the Armagh senior football final.

The Lough Neagh outfit crushed Lurgan's Clann Eireann with ease last night in the Athletic Grounds, 2-17 to 1-9.

The other semi-final takes place at the same venue tomorrow, throw-in at 7pm.

Erne Gaels, bidding to bridge 356 years since their last Championship, will make up a west-Fermanagh pairing in the Erne county decider tomorrow.

They face the formidable Derrygonnelly Harps, however, bidding themselves to achieve an historic but not unprecedented double-double.

Antrim champions Cargin put their title on the line when they meet St John's in the semi-final tomorrow at Glenavy (3pm).

The Ulster hurling senior club Championship gets underway tomorrow in that well-known cradle of hurling, Crossmaglen, when Middletown - who reached last year's Ulster final against Cushendall - meet Fermanagh's sole hurling club Lisbellaw. The two met last year and the Armagh side came out on top by three points. Without Declan McGarry who is working in San Francisco, Lisbellaw are light-handed for this assignment.

There is another corking Tyrone semi-final to be replayed tomorrow, when east of the county rivals Clonoe and Coalisland face off again in Dungannon (3.45pm), with Coalisland captain Peter Donnelly cleared to play.

Meanwhile, Scotstown put their Monaghan Championship up in the Oriel county decider tomorrow when they face old foes Clontibret, hosted by Castleblayney at 4pm.
