All Ireland Champion. Congratulations to Magheracloone and Monaghan goalkeeper, Shane Duffy, on winning the MBNA sponsored Cic Fada competition last weekend.

In extremely windy conditions, Shane kicked the ball over sixty metres to beat off opposition from twenty other inter county stars. Second place was claimed by Armagh goalkeeper, Paul Hearty while Kildare’s Paul Flood finished in third place. The competition was held in the Bray Emmets ground in Wicklow and the competitors had to kick with both length and accuracy.

The title of All Ireland champion will rest in Magheracloone for the next twelve months and Shane will hope to add to his trophy collection with the club in the next month.


Seniors. The semi final of the senior championship is down for decision in Inniskeen on Friday evening 23rd at 8.15.Scotstown will provide the opposition and the locals will be hoping to continue their recent good form when they face their north Monaghan rivals.

In the meantime the final rounds of the league campaign continue this weekend. On Saturday evening (17th) at 5.00 pm Castleblayney will be the visitors. While qualification for the knock-out stages is assured, the team would like to continue the winning habit in preparation for the upcoming championship match.


U-16 Final Saturday will be a busy day for the club as the under 16 team will play their county final in Inniskeen with a throw in at 2.00pm. The opposition will be provided by Donaghmoyne and the team will be hoping for plenty of support in their attempt to bring a county title to the club.




Sympathy. The chairman and members of the club wish to extend their sympathies to the McConnon and Freeman families on the recent death of the late Kathleen McConnon. Kathleen was the sister of former chairman and current Co. Board rep., Tom and was an aunt of current players, Damien, Tommy and David. May she rest in peace.
