GAA football county final and interprovincial wrap

Former All-Ireland Club SFC Champions Crossmaglen Rangers must face Kilcoo again in Ulster, where Ballinderry Shamrocks, Glenswilly and Roslea recorded wins; Dr Crokes and Ballinacourty were victorious in Munster, while Longford Slashers beat Rathnew in the opening game of the 2013 AIB Leinster Club SFC.

Diarmuid Connolly ensured a replay this Wednesday night in the Dublin SFC Final; while Loughmore-Castleiney created history, becoming the first Tipperary club to do a Senior Hurling-Football Championship double.

Ulster champions Crossmaglen Rangers and Kilcoo will meet again next Sunday in Armagh's Athletic Grounds after a 1-12 to 2-9 draw after extra-time this afternoon.

Kilcoo led by 1-3 to 0-3 at half-time thanks to a Ryan Johnston goal, and the Down champions held a four-point lead with five minutes of normal time remaining.

However, Stephen Kernan netted a late goal for Crossmaglen, while a Martin Aherne point tied the game at 1-7 apiece to force extra-time.

Midfielder Paul Greenan fisted Kilcoo's second goal in injury-time, but fluffed his chance for a second goal as a brace of long range frees from half-back Darragh O'Hanlon ensured a replay.

Ryan Bell was Ballinderry Shamrock's hero as the Derry side claimed a 1-8 to 0-10 win over Scotstown in Clones.

Scotstown led by 0-5 to 0-4 at half-time, and pushed four points clear, but a 50th minute goal from Darren Conway brought Shamrocks back in front.

Scotstown regained the lead, but late points from James Turley and Bell pushed Ballinderry through to a last-four encounter.

Michael Murphy impressed throughout as Glenswilly booked a semi-final berth, thanks to a 1-10 to 0-10 win over St Galls at Pairc Sean Mac Cumhaill.

Murphy bagged the only goal in the opening half, in a game where Galls fightback just wasn't enough.

A late penalty goal was crucial as Fermanagh champions Roslea advanced to a semi-final date with Glenswilly, following a 1-12 to 0-11 win over Cavan side Ballinagh.

Munster champions Dr Crokes overcame their first hurdle in Munster as they advanced with relative easy thanks to a 1-11 to 0-8 win over Cork champions Castlehaven at Fitzgerald Stadium.

Brian Looney, Daithi Casey and Kieran O'Leary were the main score getters for the Killarney outfit.

First-half goals from Jason O'Brien and Mark Fencombe helped Ballinacourty of Waterford to a narrow 2-7 to 0-11 win over Dromcollogher-Broadford of Limerick in the other Munster Club SFC tie at Fraher Field.

In the Leinster Club SFC, a hat-trick of goals helped Longford Slashers to a 3-13 to 0-10 win over Wicklow side Rathnew at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park.

Slashers led by 3-6 to 0-5 at half-time, with Trevor Clendenning and Mark and Colin Smith netting their goals.

Slashers outscored their opponents on the restart as they held out for a 12-point win and another Leinster tie at Pearse Park, when Portlaoise are visitors next weekend.

Westmeath champions Mullingar Shamrocks will have to wait a little bit longer to see who they will face in the Leinster Championship, after today's Dublin SFC Final ended in a draw after extra-time.

Last year's beaten All-Ireland finalists Ballymun Kickhams and St Vincent's couldn't be separated after it finished 0-20 to 1-17 after an extra 10 minutes a side at Parnell Park.

Five points ahead with the game heading towards injury-time Kickhams looked on target for silverware, but Vincent's scored 1-2 without reply, including a Diarmuid Connolly goal to force extra-time.

Vincent's led by two points at half-time in extra-time, but Kickhams stole a march with scores from Dean Rock, despite Shane Carthy being shown a red card.

Ted Furman looked to have bagged yet another county title for Ballymun, but Connolly ensured the sides must meet again following a dramatic final kick.

The sides will meet this Wednesday night at 7.45pm in Parnell Park for the replay.

Loughmore-Castleiney completed a famous Senior Hurling-Football Championship double in Tipperary, thanks to their 3-10 to 0-9 win over Aherlow in today's Football decider.

The eventual winners had just one-point to spare in their hurling final win over Nenagh Éire Óg, but goals were key to this win before 1,746 spectators.

A Tom King goal helped Loughmore Castleiney to a 1-4 to 0-5 interval lead, with John McGrath and Evan Sweeney adding second half goals.
