Combilift Gives Monaghan Ladies Gaelic Football Team a Lift
Combilift, a leading global player in the field of materials handling, is also now getting involved on the sports field at a much more local level. The company has committed to a new 3-year sponsorship deal with the Monaghan Ladies football team as well as sponsoring the Monaghan senior club championship. The Combilift logo will now be prominent on both home and away jerseys, as well as all items of the team’s training gear. Combilift will support the Monaghan LGFA teams both on and off the field, and at all levels from juveniles right through to seniors.
Fixtures are due to kick-off on 23rd May following the lifting of some restrictions - when Monaghan host Cavan in the first round of the Lidl National League. Monaghan senior manager Ciaran Murphy said: “We are delighted that Combilift has agreed to be our new sponsor. It is great to see a company with such vast local roots investing in the Monaghan Ladies team and we hope to do them proud on the pitch”.

We are extremely proud to support the Monaghan Ladies team at all levels as they strive for continued success, and look forward to seeing the team play their first match in the Combilift sponsored jersey. We wish them all the best for the coming season and we’re looking forward to seeing them lifting some silverware!”.

Monaghan booked their place in the semi-final of Division 2B of the league with an emphatic 5-15 to 1-11 win over Tyrone, played with ideal conditions in St Tiernach’s Park, Clones on Sunday.
Monaghan roared into a 2-4 to 0-1 lead at the first water break with goals from Shauna Coyle and Casey Treanor, the points coming from Laura McEaneny, Cora Courtney and two from the boot of Ellen McCarron.
Monaghan ran the ball up to the opponents 50 metre line before they played quick low ball into the impressive Ciara McAnespie at full forward. The support runners fed off her and Monaghan reaped huge rewards on the scoreboard.
Monaghan continued their dominance on the field and on the scoreboard for the remainder of the opening half. Another Casey Treanor goal was quickly followed by a fourth goal for Monaghan scored by Ellen McCarron.
Tyrone found themselves down to fourteen players when their star forward Niamh O’Neill was sin-binned just before the half-time break. Monaghan led 4-10 to 0-3 at the break.
Both teams made numerous changes in the second half and Tyrone searched for a goal to haul themselves back into the match. Despite plenty of changes the elusive goal was only found when Chloe McCaffrey found the Monaghan net 23 minutes into the second half.
Tyrone outscored Monaghan in the second half by 1-8 to 1-5 but in truth Monaghan’s first half display ensured that the result was never in doubt.
Monaghan prevailed on a scoreline of 5-15 to Tyrone’s 1-11. The Farney outfit now march on to face Kerry in the promotion semi-final next Saturday in what will most likely be a neutral venue.
Scorers – Monaghan: Laura McEnaney 1-4, Ellen McCarron 1-4 (one free), Casey Treanor 2-0, Cora Courtney 0-4 (two frees), Shauna Coyle 1-0, Jodie McQuillan 0-2, Holly McQuaid 0-1.
Scorers – Tyrone: Chloe McCaffrey 1-4 (two frees), Aoibhinn McHugh 0-1, Niamh McGirr 0-1, Gráinne Rafferty 0-1, Regan Fay 0-1, Niamh O’Neill 0-1, Emma Brennan 0-1, Niamh Hughes 0-1 (free).
