All-Ireland SFC Quarter-Final

Armagh 2-12 Roscommon 0-12

By Paul Keane at Croke Park

They’ve waited a long time for this one in Armagh, almost 20 years to be exact.

The Orchard County have finally won an All-Ireland quarter-final after six failed attempts, a tale of woe that stretched back to 2005, but which has finally been put right.

Where Armagh go from here will make for thrilling viewing with ambitious boss Kieran McGeeney desperate to experience an All-Ireland success, just as he did in 2002 as a talisman centre-back.

Barry McCambridge and Conor Tubritt took on the responsibility for Armagh this time with crucial Croke Park goals and both players finished with 1-2.

McCambridge’s 20th minute goal put significant daylight between the teams for the first time and it was Turbitt’s major for Armagh in the 52nd minute that really turned the screw, doubling their advantage from three to six at that stage.

By that stage, Roscommon were down to 14 players having lost Ruaidhri Fallon to a second yellow card just before half-time. A side like Armagh was always likely to take full advantage and they duly did, bringing on Stefan Campbell to rich effect.

Campbell finished with two points and set up scores for captain Aidan Forker and Turbitt while Oisin Conaty came into the game strongly in the second-half with four points to see off the battling Rossies.

Armagh came in as Group 1 table toppers and showed why they were pre-match favourites by leading from pillar to post, save for a brief period early in the third quarter when Roscommon tied it up.

Turbitt lived up to his nickname by giving the Division 2 league finalists a turbo start with a point inside 10 seconds.

But Armagh didn’t score again until the 16th minute in what was initially a cagey affair.

Armagh, replacing Ciaran Higgins with Paddy Burns from their previous game against Galway, were content to sit deep and punish Roscommon on the break.

McCambridge was the principal beneficiary with 1-1 from the Clann Eireann man in the opening half as he raided forward and added to the attack.

He played a neat one-two with Rory Grugan for Armagh’s 20th minute goal and while it owed everything to his drive and determination to come bursting through the middle, Roscommon will be disappointed that they didn’t meet him with a stiff challenge at any stage.

Through on goal, McCambrige unleashed a rocket that flew in off the underside of the crossbar, leaving the Orchard 1-2 to 0-1 clear.

Armagh’s next score, nine minutes later, came from McCambridge as well following a turnover in the Roscommon attack – Fallon misplaced a Roscommon kick-pass – and burst upfield which ended with a well taken point.

At the half-hour mark, having scored just a point, Roscommon looked in real bother, but finished the half strongly, pinching three points in a row from leading scorer Conor Cox, two, and Higgins to leave Armagh just 1-3 to 0-4 up at half-time.

Roscommon’s loss of Fallon was a huge blow though, the St Brigid’s man picking up his second yellow card for a meaty hit on Grugan just as he had collected a pass from Ronan Daly.

The Rossies also lost David Murray and Ultan Harney to first-half injuries so realised it was going to take something special with a patched up 14-man team to pull off a rare win in Championship football at Croke Park.

They got it back to level terms after two points from Eoin McCormack and Dylan Ruane immediately after the restart but soon fell into Armagh’s slipstream – and this time stayed there.

Campbell made a big impact when introduced, firstly kicking back to back points and later setting up captain Aidan Forker and free-taker Turbitt for points.

The game’s key score was Armagh’s second goal because after that 52nd minute strike, the Ulster side remained at least four points clear all the way until full-time with Conaty nailing two late scores for the men in orange.

Scorers for Armagh: Barry McCambridge 1-2 (1m), Conor Turbitt 1-2 (1f), Oisin Conaty 0-4, Stefan Campbell 0-2, Niall Grimley 0-1, Aidan Forker 0-1.

All-Ireland SFC Preliminary Quarter-Final

Roscommon 0-14 Tyrone 0-12

By Francis Mooney at O’Neill’s Healy Park

Roscommon’s joy was painted in bright primrose and blue all over O’Neills Healy Park after they stunned Tyrone in one of the shocks of the 2024 championship.

The Rossies are on their way to Croke Park next weekend for an All-Ireland quarter-final, their reward for a fully merited two points win over Tyrone.

They brought levels of energy and drive to the contest that the Red Hands could not match, and closed the game out with grit and courage.

The Connacht men showed no fear of a Red Hand side that never managed to find fluency or momentum, but was effectively prevented from doing so by a highly motivated opponent.

Donie Smith and Diarmuid Murtagh fired over magnificent scores to give their side control on the scoreboard, and they protected the lead until the glorious end.

Roscommon seized control of the game with the wind in their backs, their energy and drive putting their opponents under constant pressure.

They pressed the kick-out aggressively and reaped the benefits, Conor Cox picking up a poor restart from Niall Morgan to nudge his side in front, after Donie Smith had cancelled out Seanie O’Donnell’s early opener.

The energy and drive of the Connacht men had the Red Hands on the back foot and looking uncertain and fearful as they scrambled to deal with the driving runs of Diarmuid Murtagh and Daire Cregg.

With the wind in their backs, they attacked from deep and pressed in numbers, forcing turnovers to use their pace and positivity in waves of attack.

After going behind briefly early on, the Rossies hit six scores on the spin to establish a comfortable lead, with Donie Smith shooting on sight as he landed a couple of mighty points.

Murtagh and Cregg ran clever lines with men in support, and points from Cox and Murtagh, followed by Smith’s third, had them 0-6 to 0-1 ahead by the 16th minute.

Unforced errors and poor shot selection hampered a Tyrone side that could find no fluency or momentum, and a rash of wides compounded their problems.

They went 13 minutes without a score before Darren McCurry landed a fine score, but the Connacht men were soon back in control, Cox and Cregg both on target.

And they almost had a goal from a turnover as Murtagh drove through the middle to fire on a shot which was brilliantly savd by Niall Morgan.

Tyrone created a goal chance of their own moments later as Ruairi Canavan sent Ciaran Daly through, but he pulled his shot wide.

At the break, Roscommon led by 0-9 to 0-3, and the Tyrone managers ran the bench at the break in an effort to find a spark.

Conn Kilpatrick was one of three subs introduced, with Peter Harte also in, along with debutant Eoin McElholm, a star of the All-Ireland U20 triumph a few weeks ago.

McElholm scored with his first touch, Darragh Canavan slotted a couple of points, and while the Rossies dropped 14 men deep, the dancing feet of Canavan prised vital openings, as he landed a magnificent point to close the gap to three.

But Roscommon continued to expose Tyrone’s shaky rearguard, making the most of isolated attacks as Cregg and Donie Smith both fired over points.

At the end of the third quarter, Davy Burke’s side was still clinging on to a three points lead, after Darren McCurry had converted a free.

As the home side chipped away at the lead through McCurry’s place kicking, the danger of the counter-attack was always there, and the quality of Roscommon’s finishing was outstanding, Murtagh hitting another gem.

Energy levels were clearly dipping for the men from Connacht as the game moved into its closing stages, as Michael McKernan narrowed the gap to a single point.

But Roscommon stood firm, and worked the move that ended with goalkeeper Conor Carroll picking out Cregg for a stoppage time clincher.

Scorers for Roscommon: D Murtagh, D Smith 0-4 each, D Cregg, C Cox (1f) 0-3 each.

Scorers for Tyrone: D McCurry 0-5 (4fs), D Canavan 0-3 (1f), B Kennedy (m), S O’Donnell, M McKernan, E McElholm 0-1 each.

All-Ireland SFC Group Two

Roscommon 3-20 Cavan 1-20

By Ian Cooney at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park

Diarmuid Murtagh and Enda Smith played key roles as Roscommon overcame Cavan in an entertaining shootout at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park to qualify for next weekend’s preliminary quarter-finals.

Murtagh kicked 1-6 in a Player of the Match display, while Smith, an injury doubt beforehand, picked his moments to have a major influence in a contest that produced 44 scores in front of 3,962 spectators.

It was Roscommon’s first championship win in over a year and just their second victory in league or championship this season, but manager Davy Burke will be delighted with how his key players stepped over the plate to see off a gutsy Cavan side that were led magnificently by Gerard Smith and Cormac O’Reilly, who kicked nine points from play between them.

In the end, goals proved crucial and the green flags provided by Diarmuid Murtagh, Brian Stack and Enda Smith swung the pendulum in Roscommon’s favour.

Dara McVeety’s goal at the three-quarter stage left just a point between the teams, but Roscommon held their nerve to reach the last 12.

The sides were level at 0-4 apiece after 13 minutes. Diarmuid Murtagh (2), Conor Cox (free) and Enda Smith were on target for Davy Burke’s men, while Cormac O’Reilly, Gerard Smith, Oisín Kiernan and James Smith split the posts for Cavan.

Rapid-fire scores from Diarmuid Murtagh, Shane Cunnane and Daire Cregg pushed Roscommon back in front before Ryan O’Neill pared back the margin to just two points.

The crucial score of the half arrived in the 21st minute when Diarmuid Murtagh’s effort for a point crept in under the head of Cavan goalkeeper, Gary O’Rourke, and into the net.

The sides continued to trade scores, with Ultan Harney, Daire Cregg, Diarmuid Murtagh, an audacious free with the outside of his left foot, and Donie Smith finding the target for the primrose and blue.

But Cavan remained in touch with points from O’Rourke, a ’45 after Roscommon goalkeeper Conor Carroll denied Jason McLoughlin, Cian Madden, Oisín Brady (free) and a brace by the excellent Smith to trail by 1-11 to 0-10 at the break.

Roscommon missed a few chances at the start of the second half to leave Cavan in the game. But Enda Smith took responsibility to puncture a huge hole through the opposition’s defence and square possession for Brian Stack to palm into the net to give the Rossies a 2-11 to 0-12 lead after 40 minutes.

Both sides were in the mood to kick points for fun, but Cavan were right back in it when substitute Dara McVeety fastened himself to Luke Fortune’s crossfield pass to direct the ball beyond Carroll.

The Cavan rebellion was quashed quickly as Enda Smith bundled the ball over the line at the second attempt to regain control for the Connacht side.

Ciarán Lennon and Andrew Glennon kicked points for Roscommon after being introduced, while Diarmuid Murtagh, brought his tally to 1-6 for the evening as the Rossies cemented their place in next weekend’s All-Ireland preliminary quarter-finals.

Scorers for Roscommon: Diarmuid Murtagh 1-6 (2fs), Enda Smith 1-1, Daire Cregg 0-4 (0-1m), Conor Cox 0-4 (1f, 1m), Brian Stack 1-0, Shane Cunnane 0-1, Ultan Harney 0-1, Donie Smith 0-1, Ciarán Lennon 0-1, Andrew Glennon 0-1

Scorers for Cavan: Gerard Smith 0-5, Cormac O’Reilly 0-4, Oisín Brady 0-3 (3fs), Dara McVeety 1-0, Darragh Lovett 0-2, Gary O’Rourke 0-1 (0-1 ’45), Oisín Kiernan 0-1, Ryan O’Neill 0-1, Cian Madden 0-1, James Smith 0-1, Conor Madden 0-1
