Ballybay and Castleblayney share the lead after two rounds in the Drumlin Group of Credit Unions Senior Football League following Sunday’s games. Ballybay continued their good start with a 3-7 to 1-8 win at home to Clontibret, while Castleblayney needed a 1-3 tally from Martin McElroy to see off the stubborn challenge of Currin by three points. Kieran Hughes scored the only goal and Brian McGinnity shone as Scotstown moved onto three points with a convincing win away to Carrickmacross, while they are joined by Monaghan Harps, who saw off county champions Latton by four points at Gavan Duffy Park, and Magheracloone, who had a 12-point haul from Tommy Freeman to thank for their narrow win in Truagh.

Elsewhere, Seán McDermotts, Donaghmoyne and Cremartin all got off the mark. The Seáns edged a tense game away to Inniskeen by the narrowest of margins, Donaghmoyne got the better of Tyholland and Cremartin held off a late surge from Corduff, with a goal early in the second half from county minor Mark Magee proving crucial.

Blackhill got off the mark in emphatic fashion with a remarkable win over Drumhowan, while Aghabog did likewise at the expense of Éire Óg and Killeevan made an impressive start by defeating Clones in their opening game.
