There will be full rounds in the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Football Leagues on Sunday.


In the Drumlin Group of Credit Unions Senior Football League, Carrickmacross will attempt to build on their opening-round win over Clontibret when they host Scotstown, while the reigning league champions are away to Ballybay. County champions Latton travel to Monaghan Harps and Truagh make possibly the longest journey within the county boundaries to Magheracloone. Toome is the venue for the game between Castleblayney and Currin, who had contrasting fortunes in their first games on Wednesday night.

Monaghan Electrical

Aughnamullen and Doohamlet, who both made positive starts in the Monaghan Electrical Intermediate Football League, will attempt to make it back-to-back wins at Sarsfield Park, while in contrast, Cremartin and Corduff will be looking to get off the mark when they meet in a repeat of the 2010 JFC Final. Toome, who had a surprise win over Donaghmoyne on Wednesday, play their first home IFL game for some years against Rockcorry, while home advantage could be key for Inniskeen and Tyholland against Seán McDermotts and Donaghmoyne respectively.


The local derby between Killeevan and Clones in the Eurotech Junior Football League is the big one, as Killeevan play their first fixture of the season and Clones aim to bounce back from their shock defeat against Oram, who themselves have a big game against Killanny, who surprised Aghabog in round one. Éire Óg are the visitors to Aghabog on Sunday, while Drumhowan and Blackhill will both attempt to get their first points in their meeting.

Silver Hill Foods

Round three of the Silver Hill Foods Development Hurling League on Thursday sees Carrickmacross, Castleblayney and Monaghan Harps playing hosts to Clontibret, Truagh and Inniskeen respectively. The Silver Hill Foods Minor Hurling League gets underway on Sunday, when last year’s championship winners Clontibret host Castleblayney and Truagh Harps – an amalgamation of Truagh and Monaghan Harps – face Cavan side Cootehill.


Saturday’s action is restricted to two games in the Platinum Tanks Reserve Football League. Scotstown and Castleblayney meet in Division Three, while Truagh tackle Monaghan Harps in Division Four. The reserve leagues continue next Wednesday, with rounds down for decision in all four divisions.

Division Four table-toppers Clones are away to Aghabog, with the other games seeing Blackhill go north to Truagh and Éire Óg make the trek south to Killanny



GRM Minor Football League Division One leaders Scotstown are at home to Killanny on Tuesday evening, while Monaghan Harps have a home game against Clontibret and Carrickmacross are up against Castleblayney. The clash of Truagh and Latton, looks the pick of the ties in Division Two, while Donaghmoyne are at home to Emyvale, Rock Sarsfields play Cremartin and Magheracloone make the long trip to Threemilehouse to play Seán McDermotts.
