With the ulster semi-final loss to Armagh, Monaghan were awaiting the munster final to see who they would be meeting on the weekend of the 20/21st July.
The opponents are now confirmed to be Waterford, who suffered a big loss at the hands of Cork in the munster final last weekend.
The Group.2 Round.2 Ulster loser SF.1 = Monaghan has a home game to the munster runner ups on the weekend of the Saturday 20th July. With the minor semi-final on the Sunday 21st, the monaghan senior management will not be able to avail of the minor players they had added to the squad for the ulster semi-final. That said, it may be no surprise to see some former players return for the tie and this will help the cause in no small way.
Thanks to McElvaney's bar Monaghan who recently sponsored tops to the senior team
