  • Congratulations: Congratulations to Faughs U14 player Aoibhín McDonald who won silver at the county U15 community games gymnastics for floor and vault routine. Aoibhín will now go on to represent Monaghan at the national finals in June in Kilkenny. Good luck Aoibhín.
  • U16s: U16s had round 2 of Div 1 league at home to Scotstown Monday evening.  Playing against the wind in the first half it was 17 minutes before a score was noted.  Scotstown lead at half time 0-6 to 0-1. Second half saw Scotstown set the first score in a goal.  The Blayney girls never give up and fought to the bitter end.  Final score line read 1-10 to 1-06 in favour of Scotstown. 
  • Minor ladies: Our Minor ladies travelled last week to Scotstown to play round 1 Div 1 League in terrible conditions for both teams.  Playing against the wind in first half some tremendous defending and hard work saw Blayney go in a half time only 2pts down. Blayney came out in the 2nd and played some wonderful free flowing attacking football with 3 quick fire goals saw Blayney pull away and record a comfortable 7 point victory.  Final score line Castleblayney 5-6 Scotstown 3-5
