Ulster favourites to win Railway Cup

Ulster 0-15 Connacht 1-6

Brian McEniff’s side had trailed at the break by 0-5 to 0-4 but were a different outfit on the restart.

Derry’s Enda Muldoon kick-started the purple-patch with an outrageous score from the right corner after 25 seconds of the second half. Fittingly, it was another wonderful Muldoon score from the left wing that rounded off the blitz in the 47th minute.
