It was a very busy day of county final action right around the country.

Reigning Leinster champions Moorefield retained their Kildare title with a three-point win over 14-man Athy at Newbridge.

Crossmaglen Rangers are Armagh champions for the 46th time after a 0-24 to 1-15 win over Ballymacnab.

Coalisland were too good for Killyclogher in the Tyrone decider.

Gweedore are the Donegal champions while there was also glory for Cargin (Antrim), Castlerahan (Cavan), Adare (Limerick), Newtown Blues (Louth) and Mullingar Shamrocks (Westmeath).

The London final between Fulham Irish and Tir Chonaill Gaels ended in a draw.

In hurling, Gorey's Naomh Eanna bagged their first ever Wexford crown with a four point win over St Martin's.

Clonoulty-Rossmore are the Tipperary victors.

Ballyea finished strongly, outscoring Cratlow by 1-11 to 0-1 in 28 second half minutes, for their second ever Clare title.

Coolera/Strandhill were victorious in Sligo while at Parnell Park, Ballyboden St Enda's and Kilmacud Crokes played out an absorbing draw after extra-time and must meet again to decide who represents Dublin in the Leinster championship.
