In 2013 optimism was high that a that a good year was in store and our intermediate squad didn’t disappoint. We reached both the league final and the championship final. First we defeated Tyholland to win the (Intermediate Championship) for a third time. In the league final we didn’t perform on the day and lost to Currin. As Monaghan Intermediate Champions we were now involved in the Ulster series. We were now going in to the unknown but our players responded magnificently. Drumgath (Down) and Foreglen (Derry) were beaten to reach the Ulster Final where we faced a strong Eskra (Tyrone) side. The lads in red and black prevailed on a wet night in Armagh and we were now in an All-Ireland Semi-Final. We faced Geraldines (Louth) in Crossmaglen and in an entertaining game Truagh emerged victorious by 3 points. On February 9th 2014 Gaeil Triucha faced Kiltane of Mayo for the All-Ireland Intermediate Title. On an emotionally charged day Truagh secured victory on a score of 2-21 to 2-13. This victory was a credit to the players and management team, but also was a testament to the hard work and perseverance of past players, committee members and supporters many of whom have reached their eternal reward. The magnificent surroundings of Croke Park where victory was achieved was a far cry from our humble beginnings in March 1958.
After the dizzy heights of Croke Park our players had to get back to basics in senior league football and again responded with great maturity. They consolidated their senior status in 2014 and reached the senior league final in 2015 before losing to our neighbours Scotstown. Our minor team won the Div 2 League Title in 2014 and in 2015 reached the Minor Championship Final before losing narrowly to Donaghmoyne. Our U-21 team won the Div 1 Championship for the first time in 2013.
We have achieved some notable victories in 2016. Our Reserve B squad won the O’Duffy Cup (Reserve B Div 1 Championship) for the first time. Our U-21s also collected silverware by virtue of winning the Div 2 Championship.
