SLAUGHTNEIL will face Derrygonnelly or Roslea in the Ulster Club Championship after a one-point victory over Coleraine in Sunday's Derry SFC final. 

The victory completed a historic double-double of football and hurling titles for Slaughtneil over the last two seasons. Paul Bradley kicked four points for Slaughtneil while Shane McGuigan got the major. 

Lámh Dhearg saw off Rossa by a point in the Antrim SFC semi-final. The Hannahstown team will meet Cargin in the final. 

Edendork won their first Tyrone IFC title in 30 years, finishing strongly to see off Urney at Healy Park on Sunday. Five points ahead with 10 minutes to play, they were pegged back by a resurgent Urney side that went level with a Chris Bogle goal. But St Malachy’s finished the game off with quality scores from Christopher McCurry, Conn Kilpatrick and Conor Mallon.

In the junior final, Brackaville held on in a tight finish to win their fourth title. Teenager Seán Day turned in a superb performance to inspire the Roes to a one point win, fielding and running at the Aghaloo defence with confidence.

In hurling, Donegal's MacCumhaill's annihilated Truagh of Monaghan on a scoreline of 6-20 to 0-7 in the Ulster Club Junior Hurling Championship final, while Kickham's, Creggan (Antrim) also ran out easy winners over Castleblayney, Monaghan, 4-15 to 0-13,  in the Club Intermediate Hurling Championship final.
