Moorefield are Kildare champions after beating Sarsfields in Newbridge on a 2-14 to 0-13 scoreline, when two late goals, the second coming Ger Naughton, sealed the win after Moorfield had held just a one-point advantage at 0-14 to 0-13.

Brian Hurley was the hero kicking 0-12 as Castlehaven retained their Cork SFC title with a 0-16 to 1-11 victory against Nemo Rangers in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

The only goal of the match came from Alex Cronin for Rangers when he put his side into a 1-8 to 0-7 lead. The teams were tied at 1-9 to 0-12 before Castlehaven pulled away to close out the game and claim back-to-back titles after last year's win over Duhallow.

Tullamore pulled off a shock win against Rhode in the Offaly SFC in O’Connor Park.

The teams were level at the break, 0-05 to 1-02, but Tullamore proved stronger in the second-half and won on a scoreline of 2-07 to 0-09.

Scotstown bridged a 20-year gap as they ran out easy winners of the Monaghan SFC with a 2-16 to 0-07 win over Clontibret at St Tiernach’s Park.

They led by 0-10 to 0-05 at half-time and two fisted goals in the second-half from Shane Carey saw them run out 15-point winners.

A Kieran Comer penalty and Gary Sice goal helped Corofin regain the Galway SFC crown with a 2-13 to 0-7 victory over Salthill/Knocknacarra in Pearse Stadium.

In Cavan, unfancied Ballinagh pipped Cavan Gaels to the SFC title by a point winning 0-12 to 0-11 in Breffni Park. Niall McDermott top-scored with seven points to help Ballinagh win their first county crown and prevent Gaels from lifting their 13th.

Toulestrane saw off Tubbercurry 0-13 to 0-10 in the Sligo SFC final in Markievicz Park, while in the Westmeath SFC final St Lomans beat Tyrrellspass 1-16 to 0-15, David Whelan scoring the decisive goal for St Lomans in the second-half in Mullingar.

Clonoe are Tyrone SFC champions after a 3-8 to 0-12 victory against Carrickmore in Healy Park and Old Leighlin beat Rathvilly 1-10 to 1-8 to take the Carlow SFC title in Dr Cullen Park. 

In a thrilling encounter two Pat Hickey points in a row midway through the second-half proved crucial and Old Leighlin held on despite late pressure from Rathvilly to claim the title.
