Ulster U21 Championship: Down and Tyrone set for reunion in Omagh

By John Campbell

Tyrone and Down will have to do it all again after they finished all-square after extra-time last night and the sides will meet in a replay next Wednesday in Omagh.

Down scored 0-15 to Tyrone’s 1-12 in a pulsating contest with the Red Hands goal coming from Mattie Donnelly.

Following their fine win in the preliminary round over Armagh, Derry found Monaghan too hot to handle and lost by 1-12 to 1-8.

Caolan O’Boyle scored 1-3 for Derry who had James Devlin sent off in the second-half while Chris McGuinness landed 0-6 for the winners.

And even a fine goal from Joe O’Brien failed to galvanise Fermanagh against Cavan and the Ernesiders lost by 1-12 to 1-7.

Antrim found Donegal too sharp at Ballybofey where the accuracy of Dermot ‘Brick’ Molloy underpinned the home team’s 0-8 to 0-5 success which means they will now meet Cavan in the semi-finals next Wednesday.

Also last night two well-known Ulster GAA personalities Margaret McConville (Crossmaglen) and Paul Doris (Dungannon) received prestigious GAA President’s Awards from Christy Cooney in a special ceremony in Dublin.

Margaret has been involved with Crossmaglen Rangers in various capacities spanning six decades while Paul has been a pillar of the Dungannon Clarkes club.
