  1. That's all folks

    Monaghan 0-15 Tyrone 1-13

    So it's Tyrone that go forward to an All-Ireland Final meeting with four-in-a-row seeking Dublin at headquarters on 2 September.

    Sunday's game wasn't a classic but semi-finals are all about winning.

    Make no mistake: Mickey Harte will be convinced that his players can shock the Dubs and earn the county's first Sam Maguire triumph since 2008.

    For Monaghan, it's a case of more Croke Park devastation. Their frustration will only be increased by the fact that they didn't play well and still only lost by the minimum margin.

    Their may be some justifiable Monaghan complaints about Anthony Nolan's refereeing today but in truth, the Farney men didn't fire today and Tyrone should have won by more.

    In the meantime, safe home to all the supporters travelling home from Croke Park and we'll be back in text commentary duty in three weeks again on All-Ireland Final day.

  2. 'Devastated' O'Rourke unhappy with free count

    Monaghan 0-15 Tyrone 1-13

    Monaghan manager Malachy O'Rourke can't hide his devastation after the final whistle and queries the free count and the lack of added time at the finish.

    "I thought we were having to work very hard for frees," the Farney boss tells RTE Sport.

    "And with Kieran (Hughes) at the end, I thought the referee had his hand out for a free but didn't give it.

    "It's the first match this year where we got three minutes (of added time). I can't understand how there was three minutes. All year, we've had six, seven, eight minutes and specifically for time wasting and things like that.

    "I'm not taking anything away form Tyrone. Tyrone won it and deserved it on the day. But I'm bitterly disappointed with how things went."

  3. Tyrone to face Dubs in decider

    Full-time: Monaghan 0-15 Tyrone 1-13

    Monaghan appeal that Kieran Hughes has been fouled in the final minute of injury-time on the Tyrone 21-metre line but Anthony Nolan doesn't agree as the Red Hands hold on for a one-point win. Niall Sludden's goal has proved crucial.

  4. Hughes and Wylie cut Tyrone's lead to one

    Monaghan 0-15 Tyrone 1-13

    Kieran Hughes and Drew Wylie kick Monaghan points either side of Peter Harte wasting a glorious chance for the Red Hands. Only one between the teams with around 90 seconds left.

  5. Cavanagh tackle cuts out McCarron chance

    Monaghan 0-13 1-13 Tyrone

    Colm Cavanagh makes another of his perfectly judged interceptions to dispossess Jack McCarron. Outstanding from the Tyrone sweeper.

  6. Harte extends Tyrone's lead to three

    Monaghan 0-13 Tyrone 1-13

    Tyrone move three ahead with three minutes left as Harte slots from play. He has come good just as the right time for the Red Hands. They look in control now.

  7. McManus and Harte point frees at either end

    Monaghan 0-13 Tyrone 1-12

    McManus cuts Tyrone's lead to the minimum by a free but Harte responds in kind at the other end. Four minutes of normal time left.

  8. Goal: Sludden nets for Tyrone

    Monaghan 0-12 Tyrone 1-11

    Monaghan's lead last little more than a minute as Niall Sludden hammers soccer-style into the Farney net after Tiernan McCann's pointblank shot is saved. That came after a surging run into the danger zone by Peter Harte.

  9. Monaghan lead for the first time with nine minutes left

    Monaghan 0-12 Tyrone 0-11

    Monaghan are ahead for the first time with just over nine minutes left after referee Anthony Nolan awards the softest of frees for a challenge on Kieran Hughes, who is making a big difference for Monaghan. McManus points the 13-metre free.

  10. Substitute Hughes levels for Monaghan

    Monaghan 0-11 Tyrone 0-11

    Both teams are giving the ball away with increasing regularity and one of the turnovers is punished as recently-introduced Kieran Hughes gets his team on terms with 12 minutes of normal time left. It's not a high-quality contest but it certainly is exciting.

  11. McManus reduces Tyrone's lead to the minimum

    Monaghan 0-10 Tyrone 0-11

    McManus atones for his miss a couple of minutes ago as he slots a free from near the left touchline. Only one between the teams again with 54 minutes played.

  12. Kieran Hughes on for Monaghan

    Monaghan 0-9 Tyrone 0-11

    Kieran Hughes in on for Monaghan in place of Shane Carey with 20 minutes left as Rory Brennan replaces the yellow-carded McNamee. McAliskey, meanwhile, misses a free chance to extend Tyrone's lead. Still two between the teams.

  13. McNamee lucky to avoid black card

    Monaghan 0-9 Tyrone 0-11

    Tyrone defender Ronan McNamee looks fortunate to be handed a yellow card and not a black for a foul on Conor McCarthy. To rub salt into Monaghan's wounds, McManus misses the free. Not like him.

  14. Red Hands restore two-point lead

    Monaghan 0-9 Tyrone 0-11

    With Monaghan unhappy after they thought they had won a short Niall Morgan kickout, the resultant free ends with a placed ball at the other end which Lee Brennan slots. Tyrone two ahead again.

  15. Beggan drills over response

    Monaghan 0-9 Tyrone 0-10

    Rory Beggan's free to cut Tyrone's lead to the minimum again resembles one of Tiger Woods' stinger irons off the tee. A stunning score from over 40 metres.

  16. Tyrone two ahead again

    Monaghan 0-8 Tyrone 0-10

    Monaghan's Vinny Corey is not happy after being adjudged to have fouled Mattie Donnelly. McAliskey slots the 21-metre free.

  17. McAliskey restores Tyrone lead

    Monaghan 0-8 Tyrone 0-9

    After Rory Beggan misses a long-range free chance to put Monaghan ahead for the first time, Connor McAliskey slots a fine Tyrone score. Three minutes into the second half.

  18. Tyrone racking up the wides

    Monaghan 0-8 Tyrone 0-8

    The stats men are telling up that Tyrone have racked up seven wides in that first half. Five shots have also been dropped into Rory Beggan's hands. In truth, Tyrone could be seven or eight up at the break - but on the other hand Monaghan have wasted a couple of goal sniffs as well.

  19. Sides level at half-time

    Monaghan 0-8 Tyrone 0-8

    That's the final action of the first half. Malachy O'Rourke will surely be the happier manager after his side struggled for much of the opening period.

  20. McCarthy punishes McGeary mistake

    Monaghan 0-8 Tyrone 0-8

    Inexplicably, Kieran McGeary gives the ball away to Conor McCarthy on his own 45-metre line and the Monaghan forward strides upfield to point. An illegal kickout then results in a hop ball on the Tyrone 20-metre line and McCarthy wins the possession to swing over a levelling point. Monaghan are level for the first time since the opening minute.
