Tyrone remain on course for 7th straight McKenna Cup while Roscommon see off Mayo

Kevin McStay’s side will play Galway in the Connacht FBD League final.

ROSCOMMON WILL TAKE on Galway in a repeat of last year’s Connacht FBD League final after both counties achieved victories today.

The Rossies lost Ian Kilbride to a red card but they defeated a developmental Mayo side by 0-14 to 0-11 in Dr Hyde Park – their first win at the venue over Mayo since 2001.

Two goals from Dessie Conneely and one from Robert Finnerty helped Galway to a 3-6 to 0-8 win over Leitrim.

In Ulster, Tyrone saw off 14-man Fermanagh in a low-scoring affair by 0-8 to 0-4.

Mickey Harte’s men are 70 minutes away from winning their seventh McKenna Cup title in succession after the four-point win over Rory Gallagher’s side.

Kane Connor was sent-off just before half-time and Fermanagh only scored a point in the second-half. Connor McAliskey continued his comeback from a torn cruciate with two points, while Darren McCurry, Richard Donnelly and Ronan O’Neill were also among the Red Hand scorers.
