Gormley LOGO

Scotstown won the Gormley uPVC Senior Football Championship for the first time since 1993 with a surprisingly easy defeat of Clontibret in Sunday’s final in Clones. Three points each from Conor McCarthy and Man-of-the-Match Dónal Morgan helped Scotstown lead by 0-10 to 0-5 at half-time and they had completely killed the game off by the three-quarter mark thanks to two goals by Shane Carey.

Universal Graphics Ireland

Emyvale took their second chance with a nine-point win over Blackhill in the Universal Graphics Junior Football Championship Final Replay in Inniskeen on Saturday evening. Main man Daniel McMahon found the net twice early on and Daithí Colton also raised the green flag to hand Emyvale a 3-3 to 0-4 interval advantage. Blackhill rallied, with a Ciarán Courtney helping them get within three points, only for a goal by Emyvale sub Michael Flannery to put it beyond their reach.

Maguire Transport Websize

Carrickmacross are minor football champions for the first time in ten years after their win in Sunday’s Maguire Transport MFC Division One Final against Magheracloone. Despite conceding the opening goal to Stephen O’Hanlon, Magheracloone battled back to draw level at 0-7 to 1-4 by half-time, before hitting three of the first four points of the second half to lead by two. Carrick won the last 20 minutes by 2-5 to 0-1, however; the goals coming from Niall Loughman and Jamie Gartlan.


On the Ulster club scene, Inniskeen exited the IHC with a heavy semi-final defeat against Armagh side Cúchulainns. Monaghan’s ladies football representatives had mixed fortunes in Saturday’s provincial semi-finals, with Donaghmoyne easing past St. Paul’s, Belfast into another SFC decider, but Emyvale lost out to Aghyaran of Tyrone in the JFC.

Silver Hill Foods

Truagh Harps and Clontibret will have to meet again in the Silver Hill Foods Minor Hurling Championship Final after they drew in Scotstown on Saturday. A late goal by Dylan McGee looked to have won it for the Truagh and Monaghan Harps amalgamation, but a pointed free by Killian Lavelle earned Clontibret another chance.


Oram are through to the Eurotech Junior Football League after they won their semi-final away to Killanny on Saturday. Oram trailed by a point at the end of a low-scoring first half, but they took charge after the restart to overturn the table-toppers.


Monaghan Harps and Magheracloone continued their winning form in the race to finish second in the Drumlin Group of Credit Unions Senior Football League on Saturday, with the Harps cruising past an understrength Latton team and the Mitchells grinding out a hard-earned victory in Rockcorry. Meanwhile, Doohamlet and Carrickmacross conceded to Castleblayney and Ballybay.

Monaghan Electrical

Inniskeen are up to second in the Monaghan Electrical Intermediate Football League after their win over Tyholland under lights on Tuesday night. Donaghmoyne’s easy win against Drumhowan on Saturday kept them a point ahead of Corduff, who hit five goals to beat Tyholland, in fourth. Meanwhile, Truagh cruised to victory against Clones and Cremartin got a walkover from Aughnamullen.

Monaghan Under-16 champions St. Patrick’s exited the Paul McGirr Cup in the first round on Saturday. The Ulster championship game in Dromore saw Derry club Watty Grahams, Glen prove too strong for the Ballybay/Drumhowan amalgamation.
