MCENANEY STEPS DOWN AS MONAGHAN BOSS

COLM SHALVEY Just as we went to press yesterday, news broke of Séamus McEnaney’s resignation as Monaghan senior football manager. ‘Banty’ initially took charge of Monaghan Seniors between 2005 and 2010, contesting two Ulster finals and winning an Allianz League Division Two title in 2005.

With Peter Donnelly and Conor Laverty leaving the set-up for 2021, McEnaney brought Dónie ...

COLM SHALVEY REPORTS Monaghan’s senior ladies have a battle on their hands to preserve SFC status after a heavy defeat away to Armagh last Saturday saw them finish bottom of Group B. The draw couldn’t have been much more challenging for Monaghan– pairing them with All- Ireland champions Meath and threein- a-row Ulster winners Armagh – and it resulted in two harsh lessons for an inexperienced side. Captain Muireann Atkinson and 2022 top scorer Jodie McQuillan remained absent for a depleted Monaghan, who put two points on the scoreboard within 80 ...

Colm Shalvey reports Monaghan’s senior ladies need to spring a huge upset away to Armagh this Saturday to maintain their interest in this year’s championship. Monaghan enjoyed a dramatic one-point victory over Armagh at the Athletic Grounds in last year’s delayed league campaign, but so much has changed in the space of just over 12 months since then. Armagh have gone from strength to strength in the last couple of years, claiming a hat-trick of Ulster titles and consistently threatening a major breakthrough on the All- Ireland stage. It took the ...

GET YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME

All-Ireland Quarter Finals AT A GLANCE JACK MADDEN Kerry v Mayo The Mayo wagon trundles on, as we all should have predicted it would. With each passing round has come a steeper ascent, and but for Lee Keegan, the wheels could have come off at nearly every stage so far.

MIGHTY MEATH

COLM SHALVEY REPORTS MONAGHAN………0-01MEATH……………..1-13 Monaghan’s senior ladies have it all to do in Group B after falling to a onesided defeat against All-Ireland champions Meath made at a blustery Drumhowan last Saturday. A 25th-minute goal by Kelsey Nesbitt doubled Meath’s lead to six, effectively putting them beyond reach, even at that stage, with an inexperienced Monaghan team – who had to wait almost until the end of the first half for their first shot from play – spending much of the third quarter penned into their own half against the breeze. After ...
