2024 TG4 All-Ireland Finals tickets

Double delight for Donaghmoyne at the Monaghan Harps sevens


and Dean Fanning present the Abbey Fanning Cup to Donaghmoyne
captain Angela Lennon

was double delight for Donaghmoyne at the Monaghan Harps
sevens with their A team winning the Abbey Fanning Cup
and their B side lifting the AIB shield. Played in beautiful
sunshine, the day was a real feast of football and a great
advertisement for Ireland fastest growing sport.

In the cup semi finals Donamoyne beat hosts Monaghan Harps
2-10 to 3-5 and Tyholland defeated Castlewellan 5-4 to
3-6 to set up an all Monaghan final. In the final Donaghmoyne
had a dream start with Joanne Courtney netting on their
first attack. Another two goals from the excellent Angela
Lennon and a flurry of late points gave Donaghmoyne an
interval lead of 3-5 to 1-1.

The second half was a much closer affair. Christina Mc
Mahon found the net for Tyholland early on, but her goal
was later cancelled by a good strike from Fiona Courtney.
Donaghmoyne went on to win 4-8 to 2-3. There was some
consolation for Tyholland when Therese Mc Nally was named
player of the tournament.

In an entertaining Shield final Donaghmoyne got the better
of Scotstown 3-8 to 0-4.
