Moane hails 'massive effort' as Gorman leads Tyrone into final
Tyrone 1-16 Sligo 0-11
Tyrone manager Gerry Moane hailed a "massive effort" from his charges as they booked a final clash with Tipperary.
The Red Hands were too good for Sligo at Kingspan Breffni Park, as Niamh O'Neill led the way with a 1-4 haul.
Despite five points from Ciara Gorman, Sligo fell to a second successive semi-final defeat, and Moane reflected: "It was a massive effort against a very physical and very good team."
Sligo will rue a tally of 14 wides, but Tyrone wasted a glut of goal chances before they broke through with the last play of the first half as Gemma Begley picked out O'Neill for a palmed finish.
That score put Tyrone 1-7 to 0-7 ahead at the break, having played against a significant breeze, and they kicked on from there, with Gráinne Rafferty landing three classy points from play in the second half.
