MALONE AND MCGUINNESS STAR FOR BALLYBAY

Christopher McGuinness continued his good form for Ballybay, who also had Paul Finlay, Ryan and Drew Wylie and Malone to the fore. Blayney had Ciarán Hughes and Ciarán Hanratty available after lengthy injury absences, but they ...

Ballybay’s captain finally graces the county final stage, and leads by example with an imperious performance. by COLM SHALVEY Ballybay reached the Promised Land after 25 years when they deservedly won last Sunday’s Gormley uPVC Senior Football Championship Final against Clontibret in Clones. One of the best players in the county for so long, it took until last Sunday for Paul Finlay to play in a Senior Final, but he made the wait worth it with a trademark performance of composed football. Not only was he flawless with his free-taking, ...

TEN TARGETING GLORY

By Colm Shalvey Ten teams are still in the running for the three Monaghan football championship titles, after a weekend in which Scotstown were the main casualty. Only semi-finals remain in the Senior and Intermediate Football Championships, while the Junior Football Championship is down to the last two teams.

ALL-SQUARE AT AUGHNAMULLEN

BALLYBAY 1-09 CARRICKMACROSS 0-12 BY JOHN GRAHAM BALLYBAY and Carrickmacross have to do it all again after they fought out an absorbing draw in their senior championship meeting in Aughnamullen on Sunday evening last. Overall a draw was probably a fair enough result although Ballybay will feel that they were marginally the better side throughout but they could never put any real daylight between themselves and a tenacious Carrickmacross who were fielding 8 players short of the team that won the intermediate double last year due to a variety of reasons and at ...

The local political storm precipitated by the news of the prospective closure of the District Veterinary Office in Ballybay as a public facility, and the worrying implications for the 51 staff employed there and the health of the town economy, was a predictable one. The manner in which it manifested itself at last Wednesday’s meeting of Monaghan Co Council – with the hot potato of ultimate responsibility for the decision being projected back and forth among the Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael councillors on wafts of hot vocal air ...
