Senior Football titles were up for grabs in Armagh, Donegal, Kerry, Laois, Meath, Down, Limerick and Waterford this afternoon.

Six-time All-Ireland Champions Crossmaglen Rangers were never troubled as they once again took Armagh SFC honours, thanks to a 0-17 to 0-8 win over first time finalists Cullyhanna at the Athletic Grounds.

Chasing their 17th title in 18 years, Crossmaglen held an 0-8 to 0-3 interval lead, with Kyle Carragher, Kyle Brennan and Callum Comiskey among their scorers.

Cullyhanna cut the deficit to three points on the restart, thanks to the good work of Robbie Tasker and Ciaran McKeever, but Rangers powered to an impressive win, with Tony Kernan, Aaron Cunningham, Paul Og Grant and Carragher on target.

Less than 24 hours after captaining Ireland to victory over Australia in the first International Rules test, Michael Murphy was inspirational in helping Glenswilly to Donegal honours, following a 3-19 to 2-9 win over Killybegs in Ballybofey.

Murphy delivered a Man of the Match display and scored 1-5 as Glenswilly claimed their second title, just two years after capturing their first.

Murphy's penalty goal helped Glenswilly to a 1-7 to 2-3 interval lead, with Neil Gallagher and Ciaran Bonner added further goals for the winners on the restart.

A Paul Kingston goal helped Arles/Killeen to a 1-6 to 1-3 interval lead, after Craig Rogers had netted an earlier penalty for the reigning champions.

A 46th minute goal from substitute Kevin Fitzpatrick helped Portlaoise to their seventh Laois SFC title in succession, following a hard earned 2-8 to 1-8 win over Arles/Killeen at O’Moore Park, Portlaoise.

Arles/Killeen held a two-point lead entering the final quarter, but the introduction of Fitzpatrick and Irish International Rules player Zach Tuohy added freshness for Portlaoise, with Fitzpatrick’s goal ensuring a 30th title.

Kilcoo led by 0-4 to 0-3 at half-time, and although held scoreless for a 16-minute spell, Bureen rued the dismissal of captain Daniel McCartan, with two Paul Devlin points vital late on.
