Orchard on a mission
Armagh scoring ace Steven McDonnell feels that the still-vivid memories of last year’s defeat in the All Ireland Qualifiers to Monaghan after extra-time will spur the Orchard County on to hit their best form today.
McDonnell said: “We were very disappointed to lose that game after we had been beaten by Tyrone in the Ulster Championship and now we are getting a chance to turn that result over.
“But we know that Monaghan will be coming into this game fresh and with plenty of confidence.
“They have a lot of experience and at the same time they also have newer players who have been making a big impact.”
