Eddie 1 here

Take a bow Villatown. I have waited to see how many would congratulate Kiltubrid on this massive achievement.Best club in Ireland and a win of € 25,000. If the field was flooded or a hole in the pitch every poster would be on here with an opinion.

So take a bow Villatown and take a bow Kiltubrid.Well done Kiltubrid

agreed eddie1 they seem to get a lot of abuse on this for poor club performances and relegation for both teams but they have quite a good year at underage level with u13, u16 and minor titles so if they can keep young players interested they could bring bk the days of 2005 yet. I believe they are one of the worst hit clubs in leitrim from emigration so they make a good hand from the deck available to them.

I'll second ye

Rural clubs are badly hit with lads looking for work in Ghana Columbia America Australia Canada south east Yemen

Just to name a few of the destinations leitrim club players have traveled to in search of a crust

It's hard to put a figure on exactly how far lads have travelled for a week's wages but it's no longer an option in leitrim

Or even Ireland

Fair play to them on winning this prize

I read the story and they intend on installing a children's playground

This should draw in children from as young as 2 or even 3 years of age into the GAA

While their parents/brothers-sisters play or train or even watch a match

Investment in youth is always a reward worth reaping

Fair play
