- From the section Gaelic Games
Monaghan manager Malachy O'Rourke is pleased with his team's display even though they are edged out by Dublin in the Football League Division 1 semi-final at Croke Park.
The Dubs led 0-9 to 0-7 at half-time but Monaghan, inspired by Conor McManus, fought back to lead 0-14 to 0-13 as an upset looked on.
However, Dublin responded with four unanswered scores as Dean Rock brought up his haul to seven points.
Monaghan hit the last two scores but couldn't force an equaliser as Dublin held on to win 0-17 to 0-16.
