Tyrone edged out Donegal in the Ulster showpiece with the promising Darragh Canavan bagging a decisive goal.

With former Laois boss John Sugrue in charge, expectation is attached to an accomplished collection of Kerry players, who prevailed in Munster.

A brilliant second half display overpowered Cork with Ruaidhri O Beaglaoich sharp in attack.

Galway impressed in the west, cruising to a convincing win over Roscommon, with Matthew Tierney and Tomo Culhane carrying a potent attacking threat.
