Armagh young gun O'Neill can continue to impress McGeeney

The fact that Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney is carefully monitoring the progress of strapping Crossmaglen Rangers starlet Oisin O'Neill would suggest that an inter-county career at senior level awaits him.

But right now O'Neill is totally focused on tomorrow's Bank of Ireland Paddy McLarnon Cup Ulster Club U21 Champions tournament semi-final against Stewartstown Harps at the Kickhams Creggan club complex (12.30pm).

It was in a pulsating quarter-final win over Mayobridge that O'Neill impressively scored 1-9 and underlined his talent as a finisher.

In the other semi-final, also at the Kickhams Creggan complex (2.15pm), holders Watty Grahams, Glen will be favourites to overcome Gweedore and reach the decider.

Meanwhile, the Quinn Building Products Ulster GAA Writers' Association annual awards presentation ceremony took place last night, with the winners listed below.

Ulster GAA Writers' Association award winners: Footballer - Peter Harte (Tyrone); Hurler - Chrissy McKaigue (Derry); Female Footballer - Aimee Mackin (Armagh); Camogie - Ciara Donnelly (Armagh); Handball - Anton and Megan Fox (Tyrone); Club - Slaughtneil (Derry); Team - Donaghmoyne Ladies (Monaghan); Culture - Saul Ballad Group (Down); Young Achiever - Ben Crealey (Armagh); Communications - Sean Kelly (Antrim); Personality - Francie Coleman (Monaghan); Services to the GAA - Thomas Cassidy RIP (Derry).
