Tyrone ladies football team manager Gerry Moane is determined to ensure that anything his county's men's team can do then the fair sex can match.

Moane's side turned in a storming finish to overcome Sligo by 3-14 to 3-10 in the Lidl All-Ireland Ladies Intermediate semi-final at the weekend and will now meet Roscommon or Meath in the decider at Croke Park on Sunday September 16.

"The players have shown tremendous commitment over the course of the championship to date and now they are ready for one big final push," said Moane.

"It has been a difficult journey for the squad since we lost last year to Tipperary but they have applied themselves well since then."

Goals from Lycrecia Quinn, Emma Jane Gervin and Chloe McCaffrey proved crucial in the semi-final win over Sligo with skipper Neamh Woods, Gemma Begley and Grainne Rafferty leading the way when it came to knocking over points.

Manager Moane now believes that his players can create their own pre-final buzz within the O'Neill county.

"There is fanatical enthusiasm in relation to our bid for an All-Ireland title," he added.

Fermanagh, however, lost their Intermediate championship status when they fell by 3-13 to 2-10 against Longford.

In the All-Ireland Intermediate camogie semi-final Down defeated Tipperary on a 1-13 to 2-8 scoreline.
