It's the second year in a row that St Tiernach's will not host the final.

A Clones businessman has warned that the GAA has an "ambition" to permanently move the Ulster Final away from the Co Monaghan town.

Ciaran Morgan, of Lipton's in Clones, says "there is always a kick in the teeth" when it comes to the town hosting the showpiece.
