In the Tyrone final, Coalisland Na Fianna landed their 10th county title with a 2-11 to 1-7 win over Killyclogher.

Tiernan McCann bagged a first-half goal for Killyclogher but Coalisland hit the net through Paddy McNeice and Peter McGahan to gain revenge for their 2016 final defeat to the same opponents.

In an enjoyable Cavan decider, Castlerahan delivered the crown after suffering defeat in each of the last three finals.

This time around they enjoyed a 2-11 to 1-13 win against Crosserlough, coming back from six points behind with 15 minutes to go to win a high-quality clash. 

Coleraine are the champions in Derry following their 1-12 to 0-12 victory over Lavey. It’s just the second time in the club’s history to lift the John McLaughlin Cup. Lavey fought back from a sizeable deficit with substitute Caileann O’Boyle scoring seven points, but it wasn’t quite enough. 

Cargin prevailed in the Antrim final by defeat Creggan by 0-5 to 0-4.

Finally, in the Ulster club first round, Monaghan’s Scotstown advanced past Derrygonnelly of Fermanagh on a scoreline of 2-17 to 1-11.
