Tyrone and Armagh are among eight sides to progress to the next round of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, amid the weekend’s action.

Tyrone travelled to Páirc Tailteann in Navan to take on Meath in Saturday’s qualifier, coming away with a 2-14 to 0-19 win over their hosts.

Connor McAliskey and debutant Harry Loughran were the goal scorers for the Red Hands in what proved to be a heated clash between the sides.

Meanwhile, Armagh dumped out Westmeath with their 3-16 to 1-11 win at Cusack Park in Mullingar – prompting the resignation of Lake County boss Colin Kelly.

The Orchard County had largely dominated the first half in particular, although they still only led by four points at the break.

However, a goalkeeping error was among the issue that scuppered Westmeath, leaving debutant Kevin Fagan dejected after he spilled the ball into his own net.

Elsewhere, Waterford progressed at the expense of Wexford, with a 3-14 to 1-18 win.
