Roscommon 1-20 Fermanagh 1-15
Robbie Fallon’s ten points were crucial as Roscommon staved off Fermanagh’s second half recovery to finish strongly in Ballinamore on Saturday and book their place in the All-Ireland final.
Roscommon were 1-12 to 1-7 ahead at the break but John Paul McGarry’s point in the 51st minute reduced the arrears to a point until the winners’ late flurry of scores secured their passage to the decider.
