14.09 – Munster SFC final – The Nire 1-3  Austin Stacks 0-0 – 7 mins

I’m not sure of the exact possession stats but if The Nire are less than 90% I’ll be stunned. If Stacks don’t wake up soon this game could be over before the half-time.

Conor Gleeson with The Nire’s latest point.

14.11 – GOAL! – Munster SFC final – The Nire 1-2  Austin Stacks 1-0 – 8 mins

Well that’s an early Christmas present for Stacks as David Mannix takes advantage of a terrible mistake from The Nire’s goalkeeper Tom Wall – very reminiscent of Paul Durcan and Kieran Donaghy in the All-Ireland final – to slot home Stacks’ second goal.

15.05 – GOAL! – All-Ireland ladies SFC final – Termon 2-7 Mourneabbey 0-11  – 44 mins

Termon have taken the lead and guess who? Geraldine McLaughlin has another score to her name. Some individual performance from McLaughlin.

Geraldine McLaughlin brings her personal total to 2-5 as Termon stretch their lead to three points.

15.12 – Munster SFC final – Austin Stacks 3-4 The Nire 2-4 – 55 mins

More than ten minutes now since the last score in what has been a very poor quality game in near perfect conditions. Very hard to tell at the moment which team is down to 14 men.

15.14 – All-Ireland ladies SFC final – Termon 2-10 Mourneabbey 0-12 – 50 mins

After Geraldine McLaughlin points again, Termon full-back Emer Gallagher picks up a yellow card and the Donegal champs are down to 14. The last ten minutes will be interesting.

15.15 – GOAL! All-Ireland ladies SFC final – Termon 2-10 Mourneabbey 1-12 – 51 mins

And just as I type that, they’re back within a point, Katie Healy grabbing the goal for the Cork side.

Full-time –

All-Ireland ladies SFC final – Termon 3-12 Mourneabbey 1-13

15.33 – GOAL! – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-0 Omagh 0-0 – 1 min

Well that escalated quickly! Cormac O’Doherty raises the green flag for Slaughtneil with the very first attack of the game.

15.36 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-0 Omagh 0-1 – 4 mins

Connor O’Donnell taps over a point for Omagh but – with a two-on-one – perhaps the Tyrone side could have leveled things up.

Christopher Bradley makes it a three point game once more with a fine point.

15.41 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-1 Omagh 0-2 – 8 mins

A second point for O’Donnell cuts the gap to two again. The Tyrone champions have settled well since conceding that opening goal.

Extra-time –

Tipperary senior football quarter-finals

Moyle Rovers 0-10 Aherlow 0-9 – 13 mins
Eire Og Annacarty 0-13 Cahir 2-6 – 11 mins

15.47 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-1 Omagh 0-2 – 17 mins

Nearly ten minutes since we had the last score and though Omagh are dominating possession they’ve hit some poor wides.

15.51 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-2 Omagh 0-3 – 20 mins

Aaron Grugan cuts the point to just one but Gerard Bradley goes straight down the other end for a score of his own.

15.53 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-2 Omagh 0-4 – 22 mins

It’s a score-fest now with Hugh Gallagher getting Omagh’s latest point from corner back. Just one point in it again with seven minutes to go to the break.

15.57 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-2 Omagh 0-5 – 25 mins

And the sides are level. Joe McMahon surges forward for the equaliser.

15.59 – GOAL! – Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-5 Slaughtneil 1-2 – 27 mins

What a great goal from Barry Tierney who finishes coolly after great work from Omagh midfielder Conan Grugan in the build up. The Tyrone champions now have a deserved three point lead.

16.03 –

Half-time –

Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-5 Slaughtneil 1-2

And there’s the short whistle. Omagh are well on top now having gone behind to that early Slaughtneil goal. The Derry champions have it all to do in the second half.

16.17 – Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-5 Slaughtneil 1-2

The second half will get under way whenever Slaughtneil decide to leave the dressing room.

16.20 – Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-6 Slaughtneil 1-3 – 31 mins

The sides trade scores in the opening minute of the second half with Barry Tierney and Barry McGuigan scoring for Omagh and Slaughtneil respectively.

16.23 – Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-6 Slaughtneil 1-4 – 34 mins

There are just two points between the teams again after Cormac O’Doherty is the first to react when the ball bounces off the post.

16.25 – Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-6 Slaughtneil 1-5 – 37 mins

That’s three points on the bounce for Slaughtneil. Ronan Bradley their latest scorer. Much better from the Derry champions in the second half.

16.27 – Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-7 Slaughtneil 1-5 – 39 mins

And after all that, Slaughneil give away a needless free which Ronan O’Neill slots over to double Omagh’s lead.

16.30 – Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-8 Slaughtneil 1-5 – 42 mins

Cormac O’Neill makes it a three point game with quite possibly the score of the match.

16.32 – Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-8 Slaughtneil 1-7 – 44 mins

Two quick points from Slaughtneil from Paddy and Christopher Bradley scoring back to back.

16.36 – Ulster SFC final – Omagh 1-8 Slaughtneil 1-8 – 48 mins

And we’re level once more in the Athletic Grounds thanks to Cormac O’Doherty’s point from distance.

16.38 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-9 Omagh 1-8 – 50 mins

With ten minutes to play, the Derry champions have retaken the lead, this time it’s Christopher Bradley with his third point of the afternoon.

16.46 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-9 Omagh 1-8 – 57 mins

That’s a bad miss from a scoreable free by Ronán O’Neill and it is now 15 minutes since Omagh last troubled the scoreboard operators.

16.48 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-9 Omagh 1-9 – 59 mins

And we’re level! O’Neill makes no mistake from this free as we enter two minutes of injury time.

16.50 – Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-10 Omagh 1-9 – 60+1 mins

A wonderful point from Christopher Bradley has restored Slaughtneil’s lead. There are just seconds left in the Ulster club final.

16.55 –

Full-time –

Ulster SFC final – Slaughtneil 1-10 Omagh 1-9

Superb bottle shown by Christopher Bradley and Slaughtneil to win this one at the death. It’s a first senior provincial crown for the Derry side in their very first final.

For their part, Omagh will be disappointed with their second half performance, especially some kickable scores that drifted wide.

16.58 – Right, that’s it for me. Thanks as always for joining us. You’ll find reports – as always – from all today’s big games here.
