As half of Leitrim prepares to descend on Croke Park for today's Allianz Football League Division 4 final against Derry, Twitter has been inundated with 'best wishes' for Terry Hyland's men.

As a proud Leitrim man living in my adopted county Kilkenny, I never thought that the first time I’d bring my kids to Croke Park would be to see Leitrim play, great memories of ‘94 and my fellow clubman and friend Noel Moran tearing down the wings of the hallowed turf 🏆🏆— Seamus Breathnach (@SeanByrnespub) March 30, 2019
