At Lurgan's Davitt Park tonight, Tir Na Nog's under-19 side beat Wolfe Tones under floodlights to land the Armagh championship.

With the game postponed on two occasions recently, which only added to the excitement, it was the Tones who took control early on.

But the Portadown outfit had a better second half and held on by a two points margin in a tight finish 1-09 to 1-07.

With Barry McDonald, Paul Carville and Brian Mallon as part of the management team, the Og's fought to the end against a Derrymacash side who have a lot of talented players moving through from youth level.
