There was plenty of excitement around social media and at the draws tonight as our teams discovered who they will be facing in this year’s senior and Intermediate championship draws.
First up was the Connacht Gold Senior Championship draw where we were drawn in group two with 5 other teams. In what promises to be an exciting championship for the fans we were draw with our old rivals and neighbours Aughawillan and Aughnasheelin, two matches that our guaranteed to raise the noise level and the excitement. Also drawn in the group were St Mary’s Kiltoghert, Allen Gaels and Dromahair it what promises to be a very competitive group.
In the Smith’s Monumental Intermediate Championship we were drawn in group one with Leitrim Gaels, Annaduff, Drumkeerin , Carrigallen and Cloone, this also promises to be an exciting group with some very competitive games ahead
Under 17 league final
Hard luck to our under 17 lads who were in action on Monday evening against St Marys in the league final, the lads have been in fine form in the league and deservedly made the final, unfortunately St Mary’s were the victors on this occasion winning the game by a score of 1:15 to 0:05.
For the first time in many years the Club are organising a sponsored cycle.
On Sunday May 12th when Leitrim play Roscommon in the Connacht Championship in Hyde Park, Roscommon we are going to cycle the 40 odd miles from Ballinamore to Roscommon.
It is hoped that players, supporters, young and old will take part in what should be a great day’s craic.
It’s not a race and you travel at your own pace with groups travelling at various times on that Sunday morning.
Sponsorship cards will be available in the coming weeks but for the moment its time to get the bike out and start training!
