Well done to Doohamlet and Corduff, who both qualified for Ulster club championship finals on Sunday. Doohamlet surprised many by the margin of their 10-point win over Tyrone champions Derrylaughan in the Ulster Club IFC semi-finals. Doohamlet dominated the first half, as goals by Shane McManus and Niall Jim Connolly led them to a 2-7 to 0-3 lead and they went on to ease through on a scoreline of 2-12 to 1-5. Meanwhile, Corduff had five points to spare in their JFC semi-final, where they beat Grange from Armagh by 0-15 to 0-10. Monaghan are the only county to have two teams in the provincial club finals, which will be played on Sunday week, November 28. Details of venues and times to follow.
On the domestic scene, Magheracloone and Latton are through to the Drumlin Group of Credit Unions Senior Football League Final. Magheracloone battled past Castleblayney on Saturday evening, while a goal from a penalty by Owen Duffy led Latton past Monaghan Harps on Sunday. The game will be played in Corduff this Sunday, as will the Streamline Coaches Intermediate Football League Final between Doohamlet and Inniskeen. Truagh completed an unlikely escape when they beat Carrickmacross by six points on Sunday to maintain their SFL status. Truagh were on the brink of relegation a couple of weeks ago, but they turned things around to leave themselves still in with a chance of staying up going into Sunday’s game. Needing to win by at least three points, Truagh managed double that as they enjoyed a 0-14 to 0-8 victory against a Carrick team who had three players sent off.
