MONAGHAN CHAMPIONS

Monaghan 0-11 Donegal 0-10 By JOHN GRAHAM The magic was back in Monaghan in Clones on Sunday last as they clinched the Ulster Senior Football Championship title for the second time in three years and their 16th time in all when they held out for the narrowest of victories over the reigning champions Donegal. In a game that was intense throughout and that built to an electrifying finish as Donegal kept chipping away at Monaghan’s lead but ultimately they missed too many chances in the closing stages and the Monaghan defence held its nerve. For ...

 A fimiliar foe awaits Monaghan in the Ulster Senior Football Championship Final after Donegal battled past Derry in Clones last Saturday. by COLM SHALVEY Donegal failed to hit the heights they reached in the wins over Tyrone and Armagh, but they got the job done and Rory Gallagher will be content that they are through to a fifth consecutive provincial final without any of the hype that followed those earlier games. Donegal were given a scare by Derry, but the only goal by Martin O’Reilly ten minutes into the second half proved ...

The countdown is on to Monaghan’s Ulster Senior Football Championship semi-final against Fermanagh in Kingspan Breffni Park Cavan on Sunday week. by COLM SHALVEY With ten days to go, Malachy O’Rourke and co. are once again sweating over the fitness of Drew Wylie. The full-back, twice an All-Star nominee, won his race to be fit for the Ulster quarter-final win over Cavan, when he made his tenth consecutive championship start for Monaghan, but the Ballybay man is again said to be doubtful for the clash with Fermanagh. Dick Clerkin, who was ...

MONAGHAN ROARS INTO FINAL

Monaghan 1-10 Cavan 0-12 BY JOHN GRAHAM A RESILIENT Monaghan held out in a nerve tingling finish to book their place in the final of the Ulster Senior Football Championship at the expense of Cavan in Clones on Saturday evening last. The victory also denied Cavan completing a hat-trick of victories over Monaghan as they had been victorious on the last two occasions when the sides met in 1995 and 2001. Overall Monaghan were deserving winners in that they were the more purposeful team for the bulk of the game, using their experience and ...

CAN MONAGHAN RE-LIGHT THEIR FIRE IN PORTLAOISE?

By JOHN GRAHAM The dust has now settled even though all of the arguments and discussions may not have been settled, in the aftermath of Monaghan’s dismissal from the Ulster senior football championship by Down back on June 24th as attention now turns to their trip to Portlaoise on Sunday to see if they can extend their championship season with a run in the qualifiers.

Monaghan play Laois who will be the fifteenth county that the Oriel county have played in the qualifiers. by JOHN GRAHAM In the immediate aftermath of Monaghan’s bitterly disappointing loss to Down in the semi-final of the Ulster Senior Football Championship no one in the county, particularly the players and team mentors, wanted to even think about the qualifiers with Eamonn McEneaney acknowledging that day in Armagh that it would be nigh impossible to lift anyone’s spirits for the All Ireland series at that stage. A week later with ...
