Monaghan on the brink of relegation after Galway defeat

Galway 3-12 Monaghan 0-14

Monaghan faced a crucial match against Galway in Clones, with their Division One survival hanging in the balance.

Despite their recent history of last-day escapes, Monaghan’s fate looked grim after suffering their fourth defeat in five games.

Galway, also in need of a win, capitalized on Monaghan’s defensive lapses to secure a vital victory.

Three preventable goals in the first half put Monaghan on the back foot, despite some promising play and near misses.

Despite a spirited effort in the second half, Monaghan couldn’t close the gap, ultimately falling short.

With a daunting fixture against Tyrone next, Monaghan’s hopes for staying in Division One rest on securing a win.

Meanwhile, Galway can breathe a sigh of relief with five points, although they’re not yet out of danger themselves.

SCORERS Galway: R Cunningham 1-3, C O Curraoin 0-5 (4f 1m), R Finnerty 0-2 (2f), J Maher, C Sweeney 1-0 each, S Kelly, J Daly 0-1 each.

Monaghan: J McCarron 0-4 (2f 1m), D Ward, M Hamill, M Bannigan (1f 1m), C McCarthy 0-2 each, C McManus (1f), J Irwin 0-1 each.
