Handball: Hard luck to Dylan McKenna who narrowly lost the Boys U17 Ulster 4-Wall Handball Singles Championship Final at the weekend against Tyrone’s Padraig Fox in Breacach H.C. In what was a nail-biting final, Dylan lost in the tie breaker on a score line of 11-10. The final score for the match was 20-21, 21-15, 11-10. A fantastic achievement nonetheless to reach an Ulster Final and we’re sure we’ll see Dylan back on the courts in the not too distant future ready to bring home silverware!
Refereeing: If you feel like taking up the challenge to test yourself as a referee, why not make a no obligation enquiry? Full training and advice will be given. The referee is one of the most important roles in Gaelic Games and our club really needs more representation in this role to help our teams play their games enjoyably and safely. Contact any committee member or Niall ‘Mo’ Mc Kenna for more details.

Monaghan Inter County Teams: The weekend started off in good fashion with the County U20’s defeating Westmeath on scoreline of Monaghan 3:13 to 0:16pts. Emyvale were once again represented by Michael Hamill who got on the scoreboard with a fine point. Next scheduled fixture is the Championship Rd.1 v Armagh on Wed 22nd March. Let’s hope the guys get the support they deserve for
this game venue tbc. On Sunday our County Senior team travelled to Pearse Park Salthill to take on Galway in the Allianz League. It was nice to see such a great Emyvale turnout at the game to cheer on Karl Gallagher and the team. Once again Karl put in another big physical performance. Monaghan went in at halftime a point and a man up, and then went two points up early in the second half. But unfortunately 14 man Galway galvanised themselves and used the stronger second half wind to their advantage. Monaghan rued a host of missed chances that could have put a different light on the scoreboard. Next chance of gaining points is a home fixture to neighbours Tyrone in Clones on Sunday week. Finally, Good luck to Monaghan Minors and our own Emyvale minor players Matthew Finn, Johnnie Wright and Andrew Stewart who take on Armagh this Saturday in Clones at 12 noon in the Ulster league Rd.3. All support welcome.
