In the Kevin Courtney Intermediate Championship, Teemore will play either Belnaleck or Maguiresbridge while Kinawley will play Coa in the last four.

The draws come after a busy weekend of action.

Tempo enjoyed a comprehensive win over Derrygonnelly with the margin of victory certainly a bit of surprise, especially as the Harps had disposed of champions Roslea in the previous round.

Tempo never looked back after Ryan Keenan's goal midway through the first half. With Daryl Keenan showing great accuracy from dead balls and Derrygonnelly conceding too many scoreable frees, Tempo were seven points ahead at the break and by the final whistle they won easily by 1-14 to 0-05.

Both teams ended with 14 men, Paul Ward receiving a straight red for kicking out at Daryl Keenan and Keenan was then dismissed after receiving a second yellow for a high tackle.

In the last quarter-final of the weekend, Erne Gaels defeated Ederney following a close encounter. Indeed, it took a late point from MacRory Cup starlet Thomas McCaffrey to decide this game and secure a famous win for the Belleek men.

In the Intermediate championship,

Teemore look to be the team to beat in the Intermediate Championship easily beating Brookeboro with goals from Declan Drumm, Gerry Quinlan, John Fitzpatrick and Ryan Maguire in a comprehensive 4-12 to 1-06 win.

Coa who easily defeated Derrylin 3-11 to 1-03.
