Blow for Monaghan ladies as three All Stars opt out of county panel
Three Monaghan All Stars have opted out of the county panel - Cathriona McConnell (2012 All Star), Caoimhe Mohan (2013 All Star) and goalkeeper Linda Martin (2015 All Star).
Captain Cora Courtney pointed to work commitments and Donaghmoyne’s efforts in winning the All Ireland Senior title late in 2016.
"There’s another three Donaghmoyne ones [who aren’t back] because of work commitments," she said. "We have doctors, teachers, they just can’t give the commitment again."
Courtney was speaking after Monaghan lost to Galway by seven points in their first game of the Lidl National League. They are at home to Dublin this Sunday.
