Ulster Club Championship
Clontibret make history when they take part in the Ulster Club Championship, Bridie McMenamin Shield, on Sunday next, when they become the first camogie club from Monaghan to reach this stage of the competition. They meet Cavan Champions, Castletara at Tattyreagh, Co Tyrone on Sunday at 2pm. The final which was originally fixed for early October was held up due to a dispute within the Cavan Board which thankfully has been resolved. Aidan Kerr and Geraldine Clarke have the Clontibret girls well prepared and motivated for the Final which promises to be a great match
