Armagh 3-10 Longford 1-11

Armagh's hurlers claimed the NHL Division Three title with a well-deserved final win over Longford at Kingspan Breffni Park.

The Orchard side, who topped Division 3B, led by 1-07 to 0-03 lead at half time with Ryan Gaffney grabbing an 18th-minute goal and former schoolboy star Declan Coulter striking over four points.

But Longford stormed back into contention, scoring 1-07 without reply with Niall Casey netting. Armagh regrouped though with Chris Coulter and Martin King scoring two crucial goals to set their side up for a sixth straight win and promotion to Division Two.
