All roads lead to Birr this Saturday, when Monaghan take on Kerry to see who will meet Cork in this year’s All Ireland final.
Monaghan have been in fine form of late, but so too have Kerry who had a comprehensive win over Mayo in their quarter final. Both teams seem to have a similar style of play so this game could go right down to the wire. Last time Monaghan and Kerry met  was in the league last year, when Monaghan were lucky to take the points.

Monaghan chairperson Marie Brady has urged the Monaghan supporters to come out in their numbers on Saturday to give this wonderful team the support they deserve. And on behalf of the county board we wish the management and team the very best of luck

Venue for Saturday’s game is Birr. Throw in 5pm

Monaghan Harps brought the Intermediate championship cup back to Monaghan town with a hard earned win over Aghabog on Wednesday evening last. It was Monaghan Harps who started the livlier with Orla Callan opening the scoring converting a free. Aghabog responded with Laura Boylan doing likewise on the other end to square matters up. Monaghan Harps had a number of wides, before Sinead Maguire got their second point of the day. Laura Boylan converted 2 frees in succssion to put Aghabog a point up. Monaghan Harps continued to push forward, but excellent defending from Micheala Newell and Charlotte Brady kept them at bay. Eimear O Rourke was causing Aghabog problems with her lightning speed up frond and Orla Calan added another point for the Harps to level the scores once again. She soon put the Harps ahead with another converted free following a foul on Eimear O Rourke. Aghabog went straight up the pitch and were awared a free with Laura Boylan converting once again. with 5 minutes of the half remaining, it was 4 points a piece. Slainey Murray was introduced for the Harps and Orla Callan came close to scoring the first goal of the day only to be denied by a great interception by Ellen Mc Carron. The ball went straight up the field and Aghabog were awarded another free with Laura Boylan converting once again to put Aghabog in the lead once again. Then came Aghabog’s first point from play as Ellen Mc Carron fired over a fine point to extend Aghabog’s lead. Monaghan Harps responded with the excellent Muireann O Rourke to the fore in a fine move where she found  her sister Eimear. Eimear’s shot on goal was excellently blocked by Noeleen Mc Guirk to leave the half time score  Aghabog 0-6 Monaghan Harps 0-4.  Aghabog continued where they left off in the first half with Ellen Mc Carron scoring another superb point .  Eimear O Rourkes shot on goal was deflected over the bar to leave just 2 points between the sides. Two further points from Aghabog increased their lead to 4 points. Orla Callan reduced the lead to 3 points with another free conversion. Aghabog were guilty of a number of wides before Laura Boylan converted yet another free to put 4 points between the sides once again. It was end to end action and Slainey Murray kept the Harps in touch with a well taking point. Orla Whelan denied Rachel Boylan what looked like a certain goal with an excellent block to keep the Harps in the game. Then came the first goal of the game with Orla Callan finding the net to square matters up. It was heartstopping action, as both teams pushed forward looking for that breakthrough. Niamh Maguire scored a fine point to put the Harps ahead but almost immediately, Rachel Boylan responded equalising for Aghabog. Then came the turning point of the game. With 5 minutes of the game remaining, a high floatg ball into the Aghabog defence saw a goal line scramble. Referee Mary Foy awarded a penalty to the Harps. Fourteen year old Eimear O Rourke stepped up to take. Her shot was stopped by Niamh Connolly but Eimear’s sharp reaction resulted in her firing the rebound to the back of the net to put the Harps  points clear. Suddenly the momentum was with the Harps and Slainey Murray added another point to put them 4 clear. Aghabog didn’t give up  and bravely pushed forward. Rachel Boylan and Ellen Mc Carron both scored points for Aghabog but time ran out and when the final whistle blew, Monaghan Harps long wait for another championship title was finally over.

This was an excellent game of football by 2 teams who gave it their all right to the final whistle. There was sheer relief and dellight among the large Monaghan Harps contingent and immense disappointment in the Aghabog camp. There had to be a winner and on the night it was the Harps captain Grainne Treanor who lifted the cup. Muireann O Rourke was presented with the Player of the Match award, an award thoroughly deserved as she covered every blade of grass over the 60 minutes. Monaghan Harps now go on to represent Monaghan in Ulster and knowing from previous experiences, this they will do with great pride

Inniskeen finally clinch the Junior championship title with 14 points to spare in Sarsfield park Aughnamullen on Friday night last

Inniskeen 4-13   Latton 2-5
The game started at frantic pace with Inniskeen first to score after only a half a minute of play with a point from the boot of Tracy Mc Geeney, from the resulting kickout the ball was won once again by Inniskeen and following a foul the free kick was pointed by Bronagh Duffy. Latton had the next two chances before finally Diane Dempsey scored a wonderful point from a very tight angle. In the 5th min Inniskeen Miriam Kelly was foulded and Bronagh Duffy once again sent the free over the bar. In the following minute Voreen Quigley did have a goal chance but a great block from Leanne Herron resulted in the ball coming back out and Roisin Mc Kenna was at hand to point for Inniskeen. Up the field Eileen Black who was having a good game for Latton gave a great pass in to teammate Diane Dempsey to point. The next two scores came from Inniskeen, both points from Bronagh Duffy, the first a great ball in from the hardworking Isobel Kierans and the second a free when the former was fouled. 15 minutes was now gone when a great ball in from Lisa Dempsey resulting in Diane sending an unstoppable into the net and she followed this up with a point a minute later, her teammate Eileen Black also pointed. Lisa Dempsey then took a shot herself but this was saved on the line by Fiona Callan. Bronagh Duffy pointed once again when she collected a great pass from Linda Callan. Bronagh Duffy was now sinbinned for Inniskeen in the 24th minute when she had some contact with Nicola Herron. Despite this Inniskeen had the final say of the half when first Linda Callan pointed when she collected a great pass from Abby Duffy and then Miriam Kelly pointed when Roisin Mc Kenna laid the ball off to her in the 28th minute.
In the second half Latton were first to score when Diane Dempsey pointed from a free when the hardworking Lavina Conolly was foulded. Then between the 5th and the 13min Inniskeen pulled away from Latton by scoring 3 goals, the first when Linda Callan sent a low ball in through several defenders to reach the ever threatening Voreen Quigley and with only the goalkeeper to beat she sent in sailing into the back of the net, the second goal came from Bronagh Duffy when Laura Kelly (who had a great display from the centre back position) carried the ball from middle of the park to pass to Bronagh and she made no mistake when she came one on one with the goalkeeper, the third was a second from Voreen as Abbey Duffy played a great ball in and once again with an unstoppable shot to put it firmly in the back of the net. Latton were finding it very hard to get the ball up the field as both Isobel Kierans and Linda Callan were working tirelessly In the middle of the park, but Shauna Coyle did manage to find a way through and pointed. Inniskeen had three points in a row from Roisin Mc Kenna and Isobel Kierans (2), as the last few minutes played out young Joanne Culleton who had entered the field in the second half did bring back a goal for Latton with great work in from Lavina Conolly, but Inniskeen had the final say with a point from sub Edel Kierans and another goal from Bronagh Duffy. Inniskeens ability to win and hold onto the ball was the difference between the teams while their forwards were more proficient in front of the goals, Latton who have a much younger and inexperienced team did not give in though and kept working right up to the final whistle. Best for Latton was Lavina Connolly who worked every inch of the field while Phyllis Coyle and up front Diane Dempsey and Maria Lavelle tried hard. For Inniskeen Laura Kelly(player of the match) gave a brilliant display from centre back and Isobel Kierans worked untiringly throughout, in the forward line the potent duo of Voreen Quigley and Bronagh Duffy kept the scoreboard ticking over.
