Monaghan fell short of a return to winning ways in the Allianz NFL after Kerry finished strongly to continue their strong form in Killarney last Sunday.

Seán O’Shea and Tommy Walsh kicked 0-12 between them for the hosts, who now move four points clear at the top of the table. Monaghan face a must-win derby against Cavan in Clones next up on Saturday, March 16.
