All Ireland Scór na nÓg Finals.

On Saturday our Bailéad Ghrúpa take the stage in the All Ireland Finals in Athlone. It will be a great occasion for Aisling Duignan, Katie Duignan, Lauren McGrory, Ciara O’Dowd and Ciara Martin. We wish them the best of luck and the same to Mohill, Aughnasheelin and Fenagh clubs in their attempt for All Ireland glory as well. As usual it was hard to get All Ireland tickets and the supply did not match demand. However there will be a big contingent in Athlone from Leitrim for the occasion.

Minor League

Our minors got off to a good start with a win over Annaduff in the 13-a-side Minor League on a scoreline of 2-13 to 1-2. It was a good all round team performance. Next game is at home on Sunday to Bornacoola at 12.00. Please support.

Team and scorers: Philip Farrelly, David Leyden (Capt), Éamon Walsh (0-1), Enda Quinn, Séamus Donnelly, Matthew Murphy, Jim McTague (0-1), Conor McTague (0-2), Shane Moran (0-3), Stephen Beirne (1-0), Shane McWeeney (0-3), Brian Beirne (0-2), John Christie (0-1). Subs: Andrew Burns, John Fanning, Eoin McHugh.

Best Wishes

Thomas McLoughlin is currently in hospital in Grenoble in France after a serious skiing accident. We wish him a speedy recover and hope he will have recovered in time for the senior league.
