Tyrone safely through to third round of All Ireland qualifiers with win over Longford
Tyrone ran out four-point winners against Longford at Pearse Park to reach the third round of the All-Ireland qualifiers.
Two goals in the opening 16 minutes paved the way for a 2-15 to 1-14 victory for the Red Hand County, who led for most of the game.
The opening goal on nine minutes came from a Cathal McShane shot which went in off home keeper Paddy Collum.
McShane fisted the second six minutes later from a Michael Cassidy pass.
Iarla O’Sullivan grabbed the home side’s goal in injury time but it was too late to deny Tyrone a comfortable passage to the next round.
