Record 19-in-a-row for Monaghan kingpins, Donegal star hits 5-6 to book club final spot

Ladies football club championships are heating up across the country.

MONAGHAN KINGPINS DONAGHMOYNE lifted a record 19th senior county title in-a-row yesterday after an extra-time championship final win.

All square with Emmet Óg after the hour – 0-11 to 2-05 – the five-time All-Ireland senior club champions dug deep in extra-time to savour more glory.

Rosemary Courtney’s goal was decisive as Donaghmoyne triumphed on a scoreline of 1-16 to 2-6 in Ballybay.

They’re now due to face the Donegal champions in Ulster, with Termon making a big statement in the Hills this morning as they enjoyed a comprehensive semi-final win over Moville.

Donegal county star Geraldine McLauglin finished with a remarkable 5-6 (4-3 alone coming in the first half) as Termon booked their decider spot with a 7-13 to 3-9 victory over Moville.

Now, the 2014 All-Ireland champions have a chance to avenge for last year’s decider defeat to Glenfin.

And in Cavan yesterday, Crosserlough were crowned senior champions after a 2-16 to 1-13 win over Lurgan at Breffni Park.

Goals in either half from Kate Smith and Lauren McVeety (penalty) helped the young ‘Lough side add to their 2019 crown.
