Monaghan claimed the McKenna cup on Saturday night in what turned out to be a thrilling finish to the pre-season competition. Ryan Wylie was presented with the trophy - the first time the county has won that competition since 2003 - but the original McKenna Cup resides elsewhere.

Original McKenna Cup resides in the McAnallen house

That trophy was the first and only cup presented to the late Tyrone captain Cormac McAnallen before his untimely passing. As a mark of respect, the Ulster council presented the trophy to his family where it now holds pride of place.
