There were mixed fortunes for Monaghan teams over the weekend, with one win, one draw and two defeats the county’s lot from four matches. The senior footballers face a battle to stay up in Division Two of the Allianz National Football League after they lost to Westmeath on Sunday, but the senior hurlers are top of the Allianz National Hurling League Division 3A following their 1-9 apiece draw at home to Louth, which continues their unbeaten start and the senior ladies football team maintained their good form with a hard-earned one-point win at home to Dublin in the Bord Gáis Ladies NFL Division One. Before all that, the minor hurlers fell to a two-point defeat away to Cavan in the Ulster Minor Hurling League Division Two.
Clontibret are the only team with two wins to their name in the Platinum Tanks Reserve Football League Division One after they saw off Magheracloone on Sunday, while Monaghan Harps got a walkover from Castleblayney. Corduff are top of the RFL Division Two after they cruised past Killeevan on Friday, while Saturday’s games brought wins for Drumhowan and Ballybay at the expense of Doohamlet and Donaghmoyne respectively and a walkover for Cremartin against Carrickmacross. Truagh beat Fergal O’Hanlons in Division Four.
