Derry booked their place against Antrim in the Ulster Senior Hurling final by beating Down 2-19 to 1-15 in Saturday's semi-final replay at Armagh.

Derry led 1-10 to 0-7 at half-time with the help of a Ruairi Convery goal from a 25 metre free on the half hour.

Convery continued to star but it was Michael Conway who got Derry's second goal in the second half and ensured a place in the final on Sunday 13 July.

The first game at Clones had ended in a 3-23 to 4-20 draw after extra-time.

Antrim beat Down in the 2013 final, which was played in February of this year.
