Errigal Ciaran claimed their first Tyrone SFC title in a decade as they edged out Carrickmore in a close 2-11 to 1-12 victory in O’Neill’s Healy Park.

In a tense but exciting final that included many former and current Tyrone players, it was the Canavan brothers who were crucial for Errigal Ciaran, scoring eight points between them.

In a back and forth first half, there was little to sperate the sides as they were level with three points each in the opening quarter, with Ruairi Canavan slotting over some brilliant scores.

However, Errigal Ciaran  began to take control of the game from this moment on, with Mark and Darragh Canavan getting among the scores to give them a four-point lead.

Although they may have been frustrated to not have a goal already in the game, they got it just before halftime, with Darragh Canavan and Peter Harte combining to put through Padraig McGirr for the first goal of the game and give them a 1-08 to 0-04 lead at half time.

Carrickmore were never going to go down without a fight and were right back in it with a goal from former Tyrone forward Martin Penrose two minutes into the second half that got them back into the game.

Just as Carrickmore got within touching distance, Errigal Ciaran once again showed their quality as Darragh Canavan provided another moment of magic with Joe Oguz scoring their second goal of the day.
