Gutted: Tiernan McCann after Tyrone’s All-Ireland exit to Mayo

Tiernan McCann shared in Tyrone's four-trophy success this year, yet it's the utter devastation he experienced in the wake of the All-Ireland quarter-final defeat to Mayo that still lives with him.

The Red Hands had been expected to book a semi-final place at the expense of Stephen Rochford's side but in the end they surrendered by a solitary point, 0-13 to 0-12.

Now McCann hopes to gain compensation for that setback as Killyclogher set their sights on a County Championship title.

Tomorrow at Pomeroy (5.45pm) they will meet reigning title holders Trillick in a quarter-final that holds particular appeal within the O'Neill County.

"It's going to be a massive task for us," conceded McCann. "For a lot of the games this year, the county players were unavailable to the club yet the team still managed to perform very well."

Dromore take on Ardboe tomorrow in the first match of the Pomeroy double-bill (4.15pm).

Also tomorrow, the first round replay between Clonoe and Omagh St Enda's will take place at O'Neill Park, Dungannon (2.15pm).

In Down, Clonduff face Bryansford in the county semi-final tomorrow night at Pairc Esler (7.30pm).

In Armagh, the spotlight falls on the Crossmaglen Rangers v Tir na nOg contest at the Athletic Grounds tomorrow (5.45pm).

In Fermanagh, Roslea have a semi-final showdown with Erne Gaels at Brewster Park, Enniskillen (1.30pm).
