The Abbey Fanning Tournament took place in Monaghan Harps grounds on Saturday June
10th 2017. Due to a variety of reasons the number of participating teams was less
than previous years yet there was good football played and it was a great competition.
The participants were: Donaghmoyne, Killeevan, Latton, Emyvale, Monaghan Harps,
Emmet Óg, Scotstown and Lacken. After the league Emmet Óg defeated Killeevan and
Emyvale defeated Scotstown to reach the final of the Shield. Emmet Óg continued their
good form and had victory over Emyvale in the final. Lacken defeated the Harps and
Donaghmoyne had victory over Latton in the semi-finals of the Cup and in the hard
fought final Donaghmoyne were victors. Player of the Tournament in the Shield went
to Emyvale player, Sophie Curley and Shona King, Lacken, was the Player of the Tournament
in the Cup. The prizes were presented to the winners and runers-up by Kieran Fanning
assisted by Fiona Corrigan, Ladies secretary. Chairman, Gerard Clerkin, thanked all
who had participated and all who had helped to make the day run successfully.
