All County League

Results    Clontibret  2 – 7

An early Nicola Morgan goal helped Clontibret to a 9 point victory over Truagh in St. Mellans Park  at the start of the domestic Season on Tuesday evening last. Morgan added 2 more points in the first quarter. Clontibret continued to raid for scores but were warded off with excellent saves from Maebh Mc. Carron and Brid Treanor.

Siobhan Mc. Kenna  opened the Truagh score with a point in the first minute but a barren period followed and it wasn’t until the 26th minute that Mc. Kenna, aided by Mary Meehan and her namesake Joanne got the second point for the homesiders,. Truagh continued to chase the game after an Aoife Boyle goal widened the gap in the 24th minute. This was closely followed by a Nicola Morgan point. Marie Greenan converted a 45 just before the halftime whistle.

Halftime score Clontibret 2 – 4

Truagh       0 – 2

Truagh’s Siobhan Mc. Kenna  and Clontibret’s  Marie Greenan  stamped their names on the remaining scores in the second half with Mc. Kenna  scoring two from play and Greenan converting three frees

In the other outing Castleblayney defeated Inniskeen in Gratten Park when Inniskeen conceded a goal in the last puck of the game.

Club News


            The playing season got underway in earnest last week with our U-14 team beginning their Armagh League campaign with a victory over Castleblayney. Well done girls! Many thanks to the parents and siblings who turned out to support the team and to Marie, Aisling, Catherine, Sinead and Katie whose assistance was much appreciated. Their next match is against St. Brigid’s Armagh. This match is scheduled for Tuesday next, when our seniors are also due to play Inniskeen, so a re-scheduling may take place. Please keep an eye on the e-mails and texts for arrangements and details.

On Friday evening the senior team played Ballymacnab in the Armagh League and although they gave a good account of themselves the outcome was decided fairly early on. Best wishes to Michelle Morgan who picked up a nasty injury to her shin – though she is making a good recovery.

At the time of going to press the seniors will have played Truagh in their opening match in the Monaghan League and, as outlined earlier, their second match takes place against Inniskeen, in Grattan Park, on Tuesday evening. Good luck girls!

Well done to our U-14 players who attended county training on Saturday last. This Sunday the Monaghan U-14 team participate in an inter-county Blitz in Cavan against Down, Louth, Meath and of course Cavan. Best wishes to all our representatives.
