Lisnaskea and Steelstown off to winning ways in Ulster

LISNASKEA and Steelstown got this year’s Ulster Club scene off to a winning start as the Ladies Championships began over the weekend.

Steelstown lost last year’s Ulster final to Kinawley and began with a comfortable home win (8-14 to  1-4) over Glenravel in the intermediate preliminary round.

Lisnaskea were winners over Antrim champions Aldergrove to book a junior quarter-final spot with Castleblayney.

In Armagh, Clann Éireann saw off Carrickcruppen in the senior final replay and now take on Monaghan giants Donaghmoyne this weekend.

Derry are ranked as a senior county, so their senior champions play at intermediate level in Ulster, with intermediate champions Ballerin opening their Ulster junior campaign at home to Derrynoose on Saturday.
