With the first round of the Senior Ulster championship only 3 weeks away, training is continuing for the senior girls. Last week the girls had a useful challenge game against an Ulster selection. With a number of players absent due to exams and other committments, Ulster proved the stronger side on the night but it was a useful exercise as some new faces got their chance. There will be a number of challenges before the beginning of June so hopefully the girls will go into the championship well prepared.

This weekend the Interprovincials are taking place in Athlone. Ulster will be going out to retain the title they won last year. Even though a number of the Monaghan players were unavailable due to exam and other committments, they are still well represented on the Ulster panel The full panel is as follows

: Edel Corrigan, Linda Martin, Sharon Courtney, Aoife Mc Anespie, Amanda Casey, Ciara Mc Anespie(Monaghan) M Mc Guinness, Caroline O Hanlon,Maebh Moriarty, Sinead Mc Cleary capt, Mags Mc Alinden, Clodagh Mc Cann (Armagh), Laura Mc Gillan, Neamh Woods, Sarah Donnelly, Cathy Donnelly, Joeline Donnelly, Eimear Teague, Roisin Rafferty, Gemma Begley (Tyrone) Clara Fitzpatrick, Sinead Fagan, Orla Fagan(Down). Roisin O Keefe, Grainne Smyth ( Cavan) , Aisling Moane (Fermanagh) Yvonne Mc Monagle (Donegal) Cathy Carey (Antrim)

On behalf of the county board we wish them all the very best.


Minors finish off their Ulster campaign with a win over Cavan

The minor girls finished off their Ulster campaign with a win over Cavan. There would have been great expectations of this team going into the championship, but the loss of a number of players due to exams and other committments meant that it was always going to be difficult for them. Even going into Saturday’s game, there were only 19 players making themselves available, but those that were there ,fought off the inclement weather conditions to hang on to the victory, their first this year.

Monaghan started off the livlier, and were well on top in the opening stages of the game. However Cavan pulled themselves back into the game and a goal just on the stroke of half time With just a minute to go to half time they were 2-3 to 1-5 aheadU16S


Training continues for U16 county girls. Girls will be notified with arrangements


Both our U14 teams finished off their season by taking part in the All Ireland U14Blitz in Kinnegad. Both teams were missing a number of key players and on the day probably didn’t play to their full potential. Even though it is disappointing that none of our teams reached the finals, it was great to see so many of our younger players put on the county jersey. It is hoped to have development training towards the end of the year, where girls will get the chance to come out in preparation for next year’s competitions. A lot of work has to be done to get Monaghan underage county football back to where it belongs, but with the enthusiasm shown by so many of these girls, hopefully that day isn’t too far away. We thank both set of girls for their committment this year and wish all players injured a speedy recovery.


3 teams from Monaghan travelled to Lurgan to take part in the Clann Eireann 7s. 10 teams took part. Truagh and Emyvale were drawn together in the group stages along with Jordanstown, Lackey and Clann Eireann 3 ,finishing 1st and 3rd respectively . This qualified them both for the cup competition.Donaghmoyne were drawn in the other group along with Killeavy, Ballyhagan Clann Eireann 1 and 2 , finishing 4th, thus qualifying for the shield . Emyvale finishing top went straight through to the semi final stages.Truagh went on to win their quarter final game and were drawn against Emyvale once again in the semi final. Emyvale came out the winners and met Clann Eireann last year’s champions in the cup final. Having dominated the game throughout and leading going into the final 2 minutes, Emyvale lost concentration to allow Clann Eireann score 2 decisive goals to win by 2 points. This was a very disappointing end to what was a good day for the Emyvale girls. In the Shield semi finals, Donaghmoyne easily overcame their opponents to qualify for the final against Clann Eireann 2 and in the final they ran out winners to bring the shield title back to Donaghmoyne. Well done to all involved.
