KEVIN CASSIDY: Then there were two

AFTER last weekend’s game, we now have the pairing for the 2023 Ulster Club final and it’s one to get our teeth into. We will get to that game next week to try and see where each team may get success in their question to take home the silver. For now, let’s cast our minds […]

Trillick boss Gormley proud of his charges

By Niall Gartland TRILLICK boss Jody Gormley acknowledged that his players ‘died with their boots on’ after they were pipped at the post in Sunday’s drama-laden Ulster Senior Championship semi-final defeat to Scotstown.

Reinvigorated Scotstown on the cusp of final

By Shaun Casey FOR a team that has dominated the club scene in Monaghan over the past 11 years, winning eight county titles, Scotstown have failed to really make a dent on the Ulster Club Championship.

I’ve said on many occasions that this is the best competition in the GAA calendar at the minute and, based on last weekend’s evidence, who would argue with me?

McCague: Scotstown not looking past Kilcoo challenge

By Shaun Casey EXPERIENCE is key in the Ulster Club Championship, but it’s not necessarily an advantage this year says Scotstown boss David McCague. The An Bhoth men have dominated the Monaghan club scene over the past decade, winning eight championships in 11 years and are no strangers to the provincial scene. However, given the talent […]

Magpies set sights on Scotstown

By Shaun Casey FOR two teams that have dominated their respective county championships, there isn’t that much recent history between Kilcoo and Scotstown as they lock horns on Sunday (Páirc Esler, 3.15pm) for the first time since 2016. That was a preliminary round tie which the Magpies edged on their way to reaching a second […]
