Maghery face tough Ramor test

By John Campbell

Armagh senior football champions Maghery Sean McDernotts face a tough test in the quarter-finals of the Ulster club championship now that they will be meeting newly-crowned Cavan champions Ramor United next Sunday.

Yesterday the Ramor outfit edged out Castlerahan in a tough and tense Cavan final replay by 0-10 to 0-8.

The sides were deadlocked at 0-5 each at half-time and, with Cian Mackey deploying his vast experience, Castlerahan looked as if they might get on top after the break.

But inspired by Adrian Cole and Jack Brady, Ramor United scored late points from Adrian Cole and Killian Maguire that took them over the line.

Meanwhile, Lamh Dhearg clinched the Ulster junior hurling championship crown when they beat Monaghan champions Inniskeen by 1-12 to 2-6.

Ireland clinched the Gaelic Masters International series 2-0 with a comprehensive victory over Australia in Cavan, but lost the hurling/shinty international to Scotland 0-14 to 0-5.
