  1. Bye for now

    That finishes our text commentary on a high-scoring semi-final replay. Thanks for following, and we will be back with that Ulster final between Tyrone and Donegal a fortnight from now.

    In the meantime, here is the match report and the thoughts of Tyrone boss Mickey Harte and Cavan counterpart Terry Hyland.

  2. What's next

    So Tyrone are in their first Ulster Championship final since 2010 and they are desperate to turn the tables on Donegal who, along with Monaghan, have dominated the provincial scene for the last five years. The final takes place on Sunday, 17 July.

    Cavan will back back in action on Saturday when they face Carlow in the qualifiers.

  3. What they said

    Quote Message: It was an un-Cavanlike performance - I don't think we have conceded so many goals in my time. We created goal chances in the first half and did not take them and that is what the game swung on. Tyrone were exceptionally good, especially in the first half. from Terry Hyland Cavan manager

  4. What they said

    Quote Message: We are happy with what we scored, but unhappy at conceding 2-17, that is a serious amount. We played the way we can play - a very expansive, open game of football and we finished well. The goals were important, we didn't get any in the first match and got five today and that makes a big difference. from Mickey Harte Tyrone manager

  5. Full-time

    Cavan 2-17 5-18 Tyrone

    Jack Brady fires in a fine goal for Cavan just before the final whistle.

  6. Points aplenty

    Cavan 1-17 5-18 Tyrone

    Cian Mackey points for Tyrone, Mattie Donnelly with an instant reply for the victors.

    Gearoid McKiernan points again for Cavan in what has certainly been a high-scoring replay.

  7. Five goals for Tyrone

  8. GOAL!

    Cavan 1-15 5-17

    In the first of six additional minutes, Tyrone sub Mark Bradley rolls the ball into the corner of the net for his side's fifth goal.

    Within seconds Bradley adds a point from play. The scoring of Tyrone's substitutes illustrates the strength in depth Red Hands Mickey Harte possesses.

  9. Cavan keep going

    Cavan 1-15 4-16 Tyrone

    Conor Moynagh of Cavan gets his second score of the game, the hard-working Cian Mackey points again and so does Gearoid McKiernan. Have Tyrone taken their foot off the gas?

  10. Post update

    Cavan 1-12 4-16 Tyrone

    Feargal Flanagan and Gearoid McKieran add points for Cavan, fair play to their spirit, but here comes that man Harte again with Tyrone's reply.

  11. Three quick points

    Cavan 1-10 4-15 Tyrone

    Mattie Donnelly and Peter Harte add to the Tyrone tally. 

    Harte then lands one with his right, taking his personal contribution to two goals and three points.

    Watching Donegal boss Rory Gallagher has seen enough and makes his excuses. He will have made plenty of notes as he begins his preparations for the final.

  12. GOAL!

    Cavan 1-10 4-12 Tyrone

    Cian Mackey gets a three-pointer for Cavan as Tyrone let their concentration slip.

    Not that it matters that much. Dominant Tyrone will be playing Donegal in the Ulster final on 17 July.

  13. Post update

    Cavan 0-10 4-12 Cavan

    Conor McAliskey slots over a free from out of the left while Sean Cavanagh fits over for another Tyrone point. No let up here.

  14. Post update

    Cavan 0-10 4-10 Tyrone

    Conor Moynagh slots over a point for a Cavan team which won't be pleased to see there are still 15 minutes left.

    Tyrone sub Jonathan Munroe announces his introduction by putting Mickey Harte's men 12 points up again.

  15. Post update

    Cavan 0-9 4-9 Tyrone

    Justin McMahon points for Tyrone while Gearoid McKiernan replies with a free.

  16. GOAL!

    Cavan 0-8 4-8 Tyrone

    Sub Rory Brennan scores just seconds after coming on to the pitch, finishing of a neat passing move which had Cavan chasing shadows.

  17. Cavan free

    Cavan 0-8 3-8 Tyrone

    Keeper Raymond Galligan lands a free for Cavan which is greeted by a ripple of applause. They just trail by the nine points now.

  18. GOAL!

    Cavan 0-7 3-8 Tyrone

    Conor McAliskey runs through a ragged Cavan defence to score Tyrone's third goal. Don't think it is going to be a draw today. Extras time won't be required. We think it's all over.

  19. Second half starts

    Cavan 0-7 2-8 Tyrone

    No points in the opening five minutes of the second half, Cavan keeper Raymond Galligan dragging a free attempt wide.

  20. Grounded
