Former Poc Fada champion Gerry Fallon hit 0-10, including one sublime effort from his own '45' as Roscommon surged to a deserved win in Mullingar.
Aided by a straight red card for Queen's Conor Carson, Roscommon scored 1-8 without reply in the second quarter and the game was over as a contest after that. The other semi-final between Down and St Patrick's was called off.
