We will be there to bring you the action as it happens - thanks for following with us today.

What they said

Derry 0-11 Tyrone 0-22

Our early scores took the fizz out of the game. From our point of view, it is job done but we know it is not going to be like this in the semi-final against Donegal at Clones. They blew us out of the water in the league.

Derry 0-11 Tyrone 0-22

We hit our targets in terms of the scores we wanted to get in each half. We had to weather a storm to a degree at the start of the second half but got the game under control again.

It was an easy victory for Tyrone - they were not really tested. From Derry's point of view, it's disappointing.


Tyrone ease through and will play Donegal in a mouth-watering semi-final.

There was hardly a cheer for Derry when they came out on to the pitch. You would think Tyrone were the home team. There does not seem to be much faith in this Derry team in Derry.
