It was a disappointing weekend for two of Monaghan’s three representatives in the Ulster club Championships last weekend with Doohamlet in the intermediate series and Emyvale in the Junior championship, making their exit at the first hurdle, while Scotstown were the county’s only success as they booked their place in the semi-final of the senior club championship with victory over Burren in Newry.
On the domestic front, there were only two games of note, the first semi-final of the Shoe City senior football league, which saw Carrickmacross defeat Latton by eight points and the final of the Euro Tech Junior football league, cup section, that saw Cremartin making amends for their demise in the final of the Universal Graphics Junior football championship when they defeated Clones to take the Dr Ward Cup and with something to spare.
