Tourlestrane are the kingpins of Sligo football for the sixth time in 10 years after edging out Eastern Harps in today's decider at Markievicz Park.

Eamonn O'Hara's charges overturned a four point half-time deficit to run out 1-13 to 1-9 winners.

Cathal Henry's 51st minute goal was a pivotal moment in the game as the winners made it back-to-back title successes.

Their reward is a Connacht Club SFC date with the winners of Castlebar Mitchels versus Mohill.
