The 2016 Monaghan GAA Yearbook, available throughout the county, is a review of another eventful year.
A first Ulster Under-21 Championship title since 1999 and the success of the Monaghan and Donaghmoyne senior ladies are among the highlights mentioned in the book, which gives a comprehensive look-back at a busy 12 months. The fortunes of each of the county teams in football and hurling are reviewed.
We take a look at how Scotstown, Donaghmoyne, Blackhill, Ballybay, Killanny and Toome captured the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Football titles, while minor and reserve competitions are also covered, along with Inniskeen regaining the county hurling championship. Reviews of the year in ladies football, camogie, handball, Scór and schools competitions are included, as are reports from County Board committees, including the Coaching & Games review, which features a third consecutive Buncrana Cup victory for Monaghan. There are separate articles from each of the county’s clubs on how they fared in 2016.
High-quality photographs covering all aspects of the GAA in Monaghan appear throughout the book, courtesy of Christy Lappin and Fintan McTiernan.
With all this at a price of just €10, the Monaghan GAA Yearbook is great value and would make an ideal Christmas present.
