Down champions Burren became the last club to earn a semi-final place in the AIB Ulster Club Senior Football Championship, while in Connacht Killererin and St. Brigid's of Roscommon advanced to the AIB Connacht Club SFC final.

Burren were in excellent form as they raced to a 1-12 to 0-5 win over Coleraine at Pairc Esler in Newry. They left the Derry champions firmly in the shade, despite Coleraine claiming an early lead.

A trio of points from Barry McGoldrick, who scored 0-4 in all, gave Coleraine an early advantage but Burren dug deep to claim a 0-6 to 0-3 advantage by half-time.

Eamon McGovern (0-4) and James McGovern were among the scorers as Burren stretched their lead on the restart, with a late goal from Sean Murdock (1-3) goal sealing the win.

Burren saw out the victory despite having James McGovern sent-off in the dying seconds for two yellow cards.

Burren will face Crossmaglen Rangers in the semi-final next Sunday at Casement Park in Belfast.

In Connacht, Killererin and St. Brigid's will meet in a November 21 decider at Tuam Stadium following semi-final victories today.

At Tuam Stadium, Killererin edged out Mayo champions Ballintubber by the narrowest of margins - 0-9 to 1-5.

Padraig O'Connor netted the game's only goal from a penalty in the first half. O'Connor's strike sent his side on their way to a 1-4 to 0-6 half-time lead, but Killererin rallied in the second half.

Meanwhile, Leitrim champions Glencar-Manorhamilton bagged a hat-trick of goals, but it was not enough as St. Brigid's triumphed at Carrick-on-Shannon.

The Roscommon outfit battled to a 1-13 to 3-5 victory in a hugely entertaining encounter at Pairc Sean MacDiarmada.
