F/T Connacht 1-6 Ulster 0-15, Castlebar, 2.15pm, Referee: M Deegan (Laois)

Brian McEniff's Ulster side booked their place in November 13's Martin Donnelly & Co Interprovincial football final in Paris, as they hit nine unanswered second half points in a 0-15 to 1-6 defeat of Connacht.

The reigning Railway Cup champions, who trailed 0-5 to 0-4 at half-time in Castlebar, were forced to include Down's Dan Gordon for skipper Paul McGrane at midfield.

Connacht, managed by John O'Mahony, were also without International Rules captain Padraig Joyce due to the flu, with Mayo's Ciaran McDonald skippering the Westerners.

David Heaney was also included for Mayo colleague James Nallen, but could do little as Ulster ran riot after the break.

Derry's Enda Muldoon was at the heart of Ulster's revival as he hit a hat-trick of scores - two from the left and one from the right - to leave Connacht trailing 0-13 to 0-5 with twelve minutes remaining.

McDonald, who was lively throughout, set up Caltra attacker Michael Meehan for a well-taken goal five minutes later but Derry duo Paul McFlynn and Paddy Bradley saw out the Ulster win.
