Sligo are through to their third final in four years following an occasionally nervy, but eventually efficient, dismissal of Fermanagh in Tourlestrane.

Wing-back Eoin Comerford, on free-taking duty, notched 0-7, but it was midfielder Gary Cadden and Keith Raymond, the team's talisman at centre-back, who led Sligo's charge to a Croke Park date.

Fermanagh hinted that they might cause Sligo problems when John Paul McGarry's 14th-minute goal levelled matters, 1-3 to 0-6.

Five unanswered points in the last 10 minutes of the first half saw Sligo lead 0-12 to 1-6 at half-time.

The hosts maintained their lead in the second half, with fine points from Gary Cadden and Kevin Banks, while dual star Gerard O'Kelly-Lynch came off the bench.

Fermanagh were denied a possible comeback in the 58th minute when Eoin Cleary's goal-bound effort was thwarted by a save from Sligo goalkeeper Declan Reidy.

SCORERS - Sligo: E Comerford 0-7 (4f); K Banks 0-5; G Cadden 0-3; K Raymond 0-2 (2f); K Prior, L Cadden, F O'Flynn 0-1 each. Fermanagh: S Curran 0-9 (5f, 1 65); J P McGarry 1-1; C MacShea, BMcPhillips, A Magee 0-1 each.
