Following today's final round of group action, the semi-final pairings for the Christy Ring Cup have been decided.

The last four will see Kildare take on Derry while London will have a home fixture against Wicklow.

Kildare and Wicklow met in Joule Park, Aughrim today with the Lilywhites winning by 4-19 to 3-18 but both progress to the penultimate stage of the competition.

In today's other Group 1 game, Roscommon scored an emphatic nine point success over Mayo.

It finished 1-17 to 0-11 in favour of the primrose and blues at Athleague.

The result means Mayo will drop down to Nicky Rackard next year along with Armagh.
