A GOAL EITHER side of half-time from Dermot Gleeson and David Garland sent Ulster champions Monaghan into the EirGrid U21 provincial quarter-finals at the expense of Antrim tonight.

The Farney take on Derry next Wednesday night following their 2-14 to 0-16 win in an entertaining encounter.

The sides were level at the interval, 1-6 to 0-9, with Seamus McGarry and Micheal Bannigan among the scorers for either team.

Brannigan, who won an All-Ireland Freshers title with DCU last week, was on target again after the break before Garland’s 44th minute goal send Monaghan into a lead they wouldn’t surrender.

Meanwhile in Leinster, Laois advanced to the last four after a 2-13 to 1-8 defeat of Louth in O’Moore Park.

The O’Moore county lost David Connolly to a straight red card midway through the first-half, but goals from Sean Moore and Colm Murphy left them leading by 2-7 to 1-4 at half-time.

Louth’s senior star Ryan Burns finished with 1-4, including 1-1 from play, but just three other players from the Wee county hit the target.

Moore kept the scoreboard ticking over for Laois, finishing with 1-8, as they cruised to the win.

Laois will play Offaly in the EirGrid U21 Leinster semi-final next Wednesday night at Netwatch Cullen Park, Carlow.
