Warwickshire have continued their winning ways in the first round of the Nicky Rackard Cup.
Last year's Lory Meagher Cup winners produced an impressive second-half display to overcome Louth on a scoreline of 3-19 to 1-16 in Dowdallshill today.
Tony Joyce's side repeated their Allianz HL Division 3A final victory over the Wee County when outscoring them by 2-10 to 0-7 in the second-half.
The first-half had finished with the sides tied at 1-9 apiece.
Shane Caulfield, Garry Lennon and Kelvin Magee netted the goals for the winners.
Full-forward David Kettle raised a green flag for a Louth side that lined out minus the services of the Arthur brothers.
Donegal, meanwhile, finished with 14 points to spare over Tyrone in Killyclogher.
Davin Flynn opened the scoring with a goal and it finished 1-26 to 1-12 in the Tir Chonaill side's favour.
Padraig McHugh registered a second-half goal for the Red Hands who trailed by 0-7 to 1-10 at the midway point.
At Inniskeen, Monaghan possessed too much firepower for Longford and enjoyed a convincing 4-19 to 2-10 success.
Eamonn Collins, Mark Treanor, Brian McGuigan and Tadhg Campbell raised green flags for the winners who led by 1-13 to 1-6 at the halfway stage.
Joe O'Brien found the back of the Monaghan net twice for the visitors.
