Round-up (May 1-4)

May 4th, 2012


The quarter-finalists in the Platinum Tanks Reserve Football Championship O’Duffy Cup were decided on Friday evening. The two all-Division One clashes produced narrow wins for defending champions Castleblayney and Latton at the expense of Clontibret and Truagh respectively, while Scotstown eased past Carrickmacross, Monaghan Harps won in Doohamlet and Magheracloone needed extra-time to see off Ballybay. Division Two will be represented in the last eight by Corduff, who beat Tyholland, Killeevan, who hit four goals to pip Donaghmoyne, and Drumhowan, who edged past Cremartin after extra-time.

Clones and Seán McDermotts had comprehensive wins over Killanny and Inniskeen respectively in the Platinum Tanks Reserve Football Championship Crawley Cup, while the game between Toome and Oram was postponed. The draws for the next round of the O’Duffy and Crawley Cups will take place at Tuesday’s county committee meeting.

Silver Hill Foods

Monaghan Harps have secured their place in the semi-finals of the Silver Hill Foods Development Hurling League thanks to a four-point win over Carrickmacross on Thursday, while Clontibret hammered Knocks Grattans to inch towards a top-four finish.


Carrickmacross are the new leaders of the Drumlin Group of Credit Unions Senior Football League after they had an impressive 1-18 to 0-10 win away to Monaghan Harps on Wednesday evening. Carrick have surprised many with their start to the season and they continued that with a fifth win from six games. Stephen Gollogly (1-7, including a goal from a penalty) and Mark Downey hit 1-12 between them, while Peter O’Hanlon and James McGeown shone at midfield as Carrick pulled away in the second half, during which they outscored the Harps by 1-11 to 0-3. Ballybay are second after their 100% record was ended by a 1-5 to 0-8 draw at home to Truagh, who hit a late equaliser through a Mark Counihan free.

Aughnamullen missed the chance to move clear at the top of the Monaghan Electrical Intermediate Football League when they lost to Cremartin, who are now just a point behind the four joint-leaders, while Inniskeen beat Toome to pick up two badly-needed points.


Emyvale and Donaghmoyne moved into a share of the lead in the GRM Minor Football League Division Two when they ran up big scores in victories over Seán McDermotts and Rock Sarsfields respectively on Tuesday, while Latton’s 100% ended with a defeat against Magheracloone.
