FOOTBALL AND HURLING FANS MUST BE PROUD OF DOGGED MONAGHAN

Colm Shalvey reports Monaghan teams don’t often do things the easy way and that was certainly the case in a weekend where three county senior sides saw crucial league games go right down to the wire. The county’s senior men, ladies and hurlers were all involved in cracking games inside just over 24 hours, earning two one-point wins (one in extratime) while losing one in a free-taking shoot-out; having scored a combined 4- 52 while conceding 6-44.

MONAGHAN LEAVE IT LATE TO SECURE ANOTHER DRAW

Farney let lead slip as focus turns to division 1 survival Monaghan salvaged a late draw with Tyrone in a typically tense Ulster derby in Omagh last Saturday evening as the Allianz National Football League Division One North went down to the wire.

Colm Shalvey Monaghan have the luxury of some time to prepare for another testing Ulster derby in the Allianz National Hurling League Division 3A after their bid for an opening win in Omagh last Sunday was ruthlessly dismissed by a storming finish from a Damian Casey-inspired Tyrone side.
