KO PRESSURE

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. Monaghan’s conquerors stumbled again against Kildare, but they got the job done again. Next time they will need so much more, and part of the resolution to that equation is Ryan O’Donoghue. Late goals from a full-back and a replacement midfielder shrouded ...

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 ...

MERCILESS MAYO MAKE MONAGHAN A BAD BET

I walked into a bookies in Castlebar on Saturday morning and placed a modest bet on Monaghan to beat Mayo at 5/2. Wearing a knowing smirk and a Monaghan cap, I wholeheartedly believed I was getting one over on Mr Power. It was universally accepted that Monaghan just hadn’t shown up against Derry and came into the game with a massive point to prove. This Mayo team were stricken by injury, and it was hard to fathom how they were such clear favourites. I fully believed; the bookmakers had got ...

KO BLOW! – ALL-IRELAND SFC QUALIFIERS ROUND1

COLM SHALVEY REPORTS Monaghan manager Séamus McEnaney was incensed after his side exited the All-Ireland SFC amid a controversial finish against Mayo in Castlebar. 2021 All-Ireland finalists Mayo, who had led almost throughout the game, were almost caught at the end when they gifted Monaghan possession inside their own square, but for the second time during the final stages, the visitors’ appeals for a penalty were waved away by Barry Cassidy. McEnaney said: “I’m not going to sugar-coat things here. We are very disappointed. We think it was a stonewall penalty ...

BATTLE AWAITS IN WILD WEST

The stakes couldn’t be higher in this weekend’s Monaghan and Mayo match-up in the All-Ireland qualifiers – JACK MADDEN believes the winner-takes-all context will suit the temperament of Séamus McEnaney’s side football, the history books would suggest Mayo and Monaghan are little other than strangers. Few need any reminder that Monaghan have reached just one All- Ireland final in our history, back in 1930. Mayo have appeared in the showpiece event 18 times, but they too have had their hardship, winning only three of those finals, the last of which ...
