Kells club Gaeil Colmcille’s wait for a return to the county final continues — they haven’t reached a decider since 1991.

Navan’s Simonstown Gaels will face Donaghmore/Ashbourne or Skyrne in the county final with the second semi to take place tomorrow afternoon in Navan.

Elsewhere, Monaleen’s remarkable season got even better as the club secured their first football title since 2011.

Monaleen recently won the Limerick premier intermediate hurling title to secure their status as a dual senior club next season.

And their footballers beat heavyweights Dromcollogher-Broadford in this evening’s county final by 2-14 to 1-11.
