The 2015 Monaghan GAA Yearbook is a review of another successful year for the county.
The very welcome reclaiming of the Anglo-Celt Cup is the obvious highlight, but is just one aspect of a busy 12 months, which is recounted in the yearbook, along with the fortunes of each of Monaghan’s teams in football and hurling, while we are delighted to once again have Dick Clerkin’s perspective on the year.
We take a look at how Scotstown, Doohamlet and Rockcorry captured the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Football Championships, while leagues and minor and reserve competitions are also covered, along with Castleblayney remaining at the top of Monaghan hurling. Reviews of the year in ladies football, camogie, handball, Scór and schools competitions are also included, as are reports from County Board committees, including the Coaching & Games review, which features a second consecutive Buncrana Cup victory for Monaghan. There are separate articles from each of the county’s clubs on how they fared in 2015.
High-quality photographs covering all aspects of the GAA in Monaghan appear throughout the book, courtesy of Christy Lappin and Fintan McTiernan.
With all this at a price of just €10, the Monaghan GAA Yearbook is great value and would make an ideal Christmas present.
