Monaghan booked a place in the All-Ireland minor football championship semi-finals against Kerry after seeing off Mayo by 1-16 to 1-8 in Carrick-on-Shannon this evening.

The Farney lads recovered from the early concession of a Josh Carey goal to put together a fine performance that earned them a place in the last four of the Tom Markham Cup race.

Carey’s strike was cancelled out by a Conor Jones goal in the 15th minute that saw the Ulster side go on to lead by 1-9 to 1-4 at the half.

A couple of Matthew Finn points kept Monaghan on track after the turnaround and another from Tommy Mallen (free) would help them on the way to a merited eight-point victory.

Chasing their 17th All-Ireland MFC crown, Kerry now await Dermot Malone’s side while the other semi-final sees Derry up against Leinster champions Dublin after both sides came through their respective quarter-finals earlier today.
