Moneyglass face a mammoth task, but what better way to write their names in the record books

Ulster LGFA Senior Club Championship Final:

Donaghmoyne (Monaghan) v St Ergnat’s Moneyglass (Antrim) (Sunday, Owenbeg, 2pm)

Moneyglass face a mammoth task when they take on the might of Monaghan and reigning champions Donaghmoyne at Owenbeg tomorrow in the final of the Ulster Senior Club Football final.

The St Ergnets girls are making history by becoming the first Antrim team to play in a senior final, but they face a Donaghmoyne side who are bidding to make a bit of history of their own, as they bid for the fourth title in a row, something that has eluded them during their reign, which stretches back to 2004. Since winning that first title 18 years ago the Monaghan giants have appeared in every provincial final since, an absolutely phenomenal record. On top of that they have added five All Ireland titles, the last coming in 2016.

Such a record would put the fear of God in any opponents, but to be honest I don’t think the Moneyglass girls will be phased by it, as this mainly young team have been writing their own history in recent weeks.

Their wins over Bredagh in the quarter final and McCartans of Tyrone in the semi-final have been really impressive and they go into Sunday’s final knowing they have nothing to lose.

Their task on Sunday could not be more daunting, but if you are going to make history by becoming the first Antrim team to top the podium in Ulster, what better way to do it than by beating the very best.
