The 2017 Monaghan GAA Yearbook, available throughout the county, is a review of another eventful year.
The book gives a comprehensive look-back at a busy 12 months, with the fortunes of each of the county teams in football and hurling are reviewed, including a lengthy campaign for the senior football side.
We take a look at how Scotstown, Carrickmacross, Currin and Ballybay captured the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Football titles, while minor and reserve competitions are also covered, along with Castleblayney regaining the county senior hurling silverware. Reviews of the year in ladies football, camogie, handball, Scór and schools competitions are included, as are reports from County Board committees, including the Coaching & Games review, which features a first ever Gerry Reilly Cup victory for Monaghan’s U-16 development squad.
There are separate articles from each of the county’s clubs on how they fared in 2017 and a feature on Andrew Kieran’s inspirational return to football with Killanny.
High-quality photographs covering all aspects of the GAA in Monaghan appear throughout the book, courtesy of Christy Lappin, Fintan McTiernan, Séamus McQuillan and Glenn Murphy.
With all this at a price of just €10, the Monaghan GAA Yearbook – produced by R&S Printers – is great value and would make an ideal Christmas present.
