TOO CLOSE TO CALL

Brian McEniff and Monaghan have history . . . literally. For starters, his father was born and reared in Newbliss and McEniff, the younger, says he retains many vivid memories of patrolling the pitch either side of the white line as a player and manager while faced by Monaghan in the white heat of the Ulster SFC. Ahead of this Sunday’s blue riband decider, the wily hotelier says the title is there for the taking for both teams. A proud son of Donegal, he is nonetheless very much a paid-up member ...

ANOTHER MONAGHAN SLIP-UP

WESTMEATH 1-19 MONAGHAN 2-11 COLM SHALVEY REPORTS onaghan failed to build on their high-scoring win over Louth in the Allianz NFL when they slipped to a five-point defeat against Westmeath in Mullingar on Sunday. Monaghan again ran up a healthy score, but their porous defence allowed Westmeath to hit 1-18 from play and run out deserving winners. After a slow start, Monaghan had looked set to push on when they hit a quick burst of 1-4 as half-time approached, but that was quickly wiped out ...

MULVANEY IS THE HERO FOR CAVAN

CAVAN 1-15 MONAGHAN 1-08 JOHN GRAHAM reports Cavan full forward Kevin Mulvaney put on an exhibition of point scoring from both play and frees that helped catapult Cavan through to the final of the Ulster Bank Vocational Schools inter county championship at the expense of Monaghan in this keenly contested and at times hard-hitting contest that was played in blustery and bitterly cold conditions in Cloghan on Thursday afternoon last. Overall Cavan’s play was that ...

Observers of the ongoing convulsions in the Fianna Fáil party, quelled temporarily by this week’s somewhat pyrrhic confidence motion victory by the obdurate but enduring Brian Cowen, and watchers of the wider political scene generally might be tempted to sum it all up by turning a well-worn phrase on its head and declaring the current state of the nation a case of “too many Indians, not enough chiefs”. That Mr Cowen survived the half-hearted heave against him is a tribute to his street-fighting skills and his adeptness at manipulating ...

26 Aug 2010 Comments Off on TIME TO COME CLEAN?

At a time when a considerable effort is being made to enhance the urban environment of Monaghan Town, the negative publicity for the county capital generated by its being ranked 47th out of the 53 towns surveyed in the annual Irish Businesses Against Litter league table published this week arrives inopportunely (see story, Page One). The IBAL survey is not, we would suggest, the most authoritative analysis of the cleanliness or otherwise of the towns upon which it chooses to cast its spotlight. It has long been a criticism of ...

MONAGHAN TOWN has been rated one of the worst of the border towns in the annual IBAL (Irish Businesses Against Litter) results. Out of 53 towns and cities surveyed, Monaghan – in previous years one of IBAL’s better towns – ranked in 47th place and just three sites in the town were listed as being Clean to European Norms. What was listed as the Monaghan Town Council Public Playing Pitch fared the worst as it was described as a litter blackspot and the results stated, “There was a constant stream of ...

Monaghan Chamber President Gordon Fleming told the councillors that they were looking at ...
