A goal from Down's Donal O'Hare followed by points from Barry O'Hagan, Corey Quinn and Jerome Johnston saw them in the middle of Injury time ahead by 8 points. Fermanagh added two points to their tally but further points from Ryan Johnston and Caolan Mooney left the game in no doubt. Today's win sees them take on Cavan in an Ulster Semi Final clash next Sunday 15 November.
