Jack Guiney's stoppage time goal sent the tie to added time as the Slaneysiders fought back, but they were no match for a resurgent Banner side in the closing stages.

Clare led by 1-10 to 0-7 at the interval, with Shane O'Donnell grabbing their goal.

Wexford fought back with points from Podge Doran, Gary Moore and Ciaran Kenny, before Guiney hit his dramatic leveller.

But Davy Fitzgerald's men put the tie beyond reach by hitting 2-3 in the first period of extra-time, both goals coming from substitute Cathal McInerney.

Armagh went on a scoring rampage to blitz Leitrim in a one-sided All-Ireland SFC Qualifier tie at Carrick-on-Shannon.

Eugene McVerry helped himself to a hat-trick as the Orchard men romped to an 8-13 to 0-10 win.

They led by 4-8 to 0-4 at the interval, with McVerry striking twice, and Tony Kernan and Kevin Dyas also hitting the net, all of Leitrim's points coming from Kevin Conlon frees.

McVerry and Mark Shields added further goals in the second half, before Jamie Clarke completed the rout with two late strikes.
