Monaghan scored a crucial victory against hosts Dublin on Saturday to remain firmly in the hunt for a first Bord Gáis Energy Ladies National Football league crown since 1999.

The Farney girls strengthened their second place position behind table-toppers Galway in Division 1 after securing a 0-13 to 0-8 win against the Jackies at Naomh Mearnóg.

Dublin, with the breeze at their backs in the first half, opened up a 0-7 to 0-5 half-time lead but were held to just a single point by a fired-up Monaghan in the second half.

After losing to Dublin in last year’s league and also in the All-Ireland semi-final, the Ulster outfit were determined to gain revenge and did so with another impressive attacking display.

Once again, all six forwards were on the scoresheet for the visitors as Edel Byrne led the way with an impressive haul of six points.

The experienced Niamh Kindlon added three points, while Laura McEnaney, daughter of Monaghan senior football manager Seamus, performed well in the second half with some intelligent and selfless running.

Sinead Ahern was Dublin’s most effective forward with three points but it was Monaghan’s work-rate, particularly after half-time, that made the difference.
