Tyrone will meet Monaghan in the Ulster senior football final on Saturday week, July 31st, at Croke Park.

It's expected a crowd of 18,000 will be allowed to attend the game in Dublin. 

The Red Hands made it through to the decider by beating 14-man Donegal 0-23 to 1-14 at Brewster Park in Enniskillen on Sunday.

The turning point came just before the break when Donegal star Michael Murphy was sent off.

He had earlier missed a penalty.

It's Tyrone's first Ulster final since 2017.

Monaghan beat Armagh in the other last four tie on Saturday night.

Following the tragic death of Monaghan captain Brendan Óg Duffy, the provincial U-20 football final will now not take place on Saturday.

The game between Monaghan and Down has been re-fixed for Friday, 30 July at the Athletic Grounds.

Sunday also saw Derry win a first All-Ireland Minor title in 19 years.

They beat Kerry by a point in a dramatic decider at Tullamore, County Offaly - it finished 2-12 to 1-14.

Matthew Downey held his nerve to convert an injury-time penalty and seal victory for the Ulster side.
