Monaghan Hurlers now focused on championship

On the hurling front, Monaghan wrapped up their Division 3A campaign with a 1-13 draw against Louth on Sunday past in Castleblayney. That result was enough to see the wee county reach the league final where they will face Warwickshire who completed the league with 4 wins and a draw which they recorded against Louth back in February.

For Monaghan the attention now turns to the championship and the Nicky Rackard cup with manager Trevor Hilliard declaring himself happy with the attitude of his team ahead of the opening round
