Subs: David O’Sullivan (0-1), Ben Chadwick, Eoin England and Patrick Hayes.
MacDonaghs qualified for the North final with a comprehensive 11-16 to 0-6 victory over Lorrha/Rovers in Ardcroney.The Magpies had the use of a strong wind in the first half and were well in control at the interval with the score 4-12 to 0-4 in their favour.
