  Does the internal grading in Monaghan and Tyrone reflect their success at Ulster level in Intermediate and Junior?

There are 48 clubs in Tyrone (or at least there were) who are split evenly - 16 in senior championship/division 1, 16 in intermediate championship/division 2 and 16 in junior championship/division 3.

Monaghan only has 29 clubs.  10 Senior, 10 Intermediate and 9 Junior with Scotstown also entering a junior team to make this up to 10 also. There does tend to be a trend of teams getting promoted one year but struggling to stay there the next.  Magheracloone had a rough year in 2018 and it resulted in relegation.  But they were always going to be too strong for intermediate and getting Tommy Freeman talked into coming back helped them too.  They were a good bit ahead of the rest.  Blackhill are a good junior outfit but like other clubs would find intermediate tough.  Emyvale won Junior in 2018 and finished 8th in intermediate narrowly avoiding the drop for next season.  Aughnamullen and Sean McDermotts were relegated to junior and should be strong there next year.

Only 1 club has more than one adult championship team in Monaghan or do they play junior B championship etc?

Most (all?) football clubs in Monaghan have a second mens team that play in "reserve" leagues & championships. A quick check on Monaghan's website indicates that Scotstown have four adult teams (1 senior, 1 junior & 2 reserves) while a few others also have two reserve sides. "Reserve" is a common designator for club competitions involving second string teams in most Ulster counties, whereas elsewhere in Ireland such teams usually play in Junior B/C/D etc. competitions, with a few stronger teams playing at Junior A or even Intermediate level within their county.
