Silver Hill Farm Senior Hurling Championship Final
Castleblayney 6-17 Inniskeen 0-9 5/8/18
Castleblayney retained the Monaghan SHC title in some style when they cruised to victory in last Sunday’s final against Inniskeen in Clontibret. Goals by Brian McGuigan (two), Fergal Rafter and Mark Treanor had a completely dominant Blayney side 4-10 to 0-4 clear by half-time. McGuigan went on to add another brace of goals to his tally in the second half as Blayney continued their stranglehold on the game to claim their 15th championship since 2000.
