NFL DIV 3: Armagh men edge out Fermanagh
Fourteen-man Armagh won the Allianz Football League Division 3 title with a 0-16 to 0-11 win over Ulster rivals Fermanagh at Croke Park on Saturday.
Tony Kernan converted four frees to give Armagh a 0-8 to 0-6 interval lead, despite the loss of Finian Moriarty to a second booking.
Kernan and Ethan Rafferty added further scores, and although Fermanagh responded with points from Sean Quigley and Tomas Corrigan, the Orchard men finished strongly, and could have had more goals, but for the superb efforts of keeper Thomas Treacy.
