Big win in Clones, solid 2nd half performance where we were fairly clinical in front of the posts.

Bit of breathing space in the league now, and the scoring difference boosted too should that come into play.

It will be a learning experience for Clifford. Not to say he wasn't doing anything himself, but Tyrone got exactly what they would have wanted out of that. And just as Kerry had gotten a man advantage themselves, that could well have been the losing of the game, and changes the complexion of the league table.

Clifford didn't go off quiet though, some shouting done to the officials after.

Well done to Magheracloone, huge win for them today. What a way to bounce back for them after a disastrous 2018, in more ways than one.

Must have been a strong wind? They hammered Mattock in the second half.

Fully deserved by Kilcoo, they didn't make it easy on themselves though

I seem to have jinxed Kilcoo, only 2 in it now and the momentum with Glenties. They definitely should have took that goal chance when it opened up for them, but even if he took the handy point it would have just kept the scoreboard ticking over for them. Makes for a nervy finish now, alot nervier than it should have been for Kilcoo.

Nice goal there from another Kilcoo defender. 6 point lead now, if they don't lose the plot in the full back line again, they should see this out. The points are coming easier for them than Glenties, so they just need to continue to keep the scoreboard ticking over.

That is absolutely shocking defending under a high ball from Kilcoo

Good win by Magheracloone in the Intermediate final by the sounds of it. I said from the start that I thought they'd do well as they're above intermediate level in my opinion and last year's relegation was just a blip, but there seemed to be alot of people here really talking up Galbally, so it's a good win for the Magheracloone men.

Vinny Corey and Dessie Mone both announced their retirements today, 2 of the all time great servants to Monaghan football.

No surprise really with Banty coming back in, Malachy leaving seemed like a natural point for them both to bow out on too, but that's a serious amount of experience leaving the dressing room. They've been part of the county team since 2003 and 2004 respectively. They owe Monaghan football absolutely nothing and their presence will certainly be missed.

Another awful batin in the McRory today:

The Sem 10-14 Coláistí Inis Eoghain 1-4

These games are no good for those young lads

Good showing by the Monaghan clubs here - Blackhill junior champions after a great win last night, and Magheracloone through to the intermediate final.

Very disappointing result last night, but we could have no complaints. We just didn't perform anywhere near our best and you couldn't expect to win a provincial semi playing like that. Glenties came out flying out of the blocks and took some nice scores. And once we went 6-1 down to a team as defensively organised as they are, it was always going to be a uphill battle. They were just up to the pitch of the game straight away, and didn't let that drop for the full game. Very impressive effort.

It's just disappointing after we had two big wins against teams like Scotstown and Cross, that we didn't carry that level of performance forward, but the truth is we weren't let. A few lads upped their game in the 2nd half and took the game to Glenties, but at that stage it was too little, too late. Alot of lads didn't do themselves justice last night compared to how they've performed before, alot of sloppy mistakes and giving the ball away in attack( especially in the second half), but again you'd have to credit the Glenties defence there.

Truth is, at the end of last season, being within a game of the Ulster final seemed miles off. A county title was great success for us this year, and the many young lads in the team will be all the better for it going forward, but it was an open Ulster club, and Glenties came out and took their chance. They have a good shot in the final, very organized and awful tough to play against.
