A flashback to the 1998 Ulster club minor final at St Paul's and a win over Slaughtneil over Ardboe.

The Emmet's had to come back from a first-half own goal to win 1-9 to 1-8 against the Tyrone champions who had Brian McGuigan, Tommy McGuigan and current Slaughtneil coach Gavin Devlin in their side.
