Minor Championship Final
The Minor team had a great battle with Glenfarne before emerging victorious in a tight 9-a-side minor final last week. Well done to Jackie, Brian and the lads. Full report to follow next week. The lads are involved again tonight as they play Fenagh in the league semi-final.
The senior team have qualified for the county semi final after a fine victory over Glencar/Manorhamilton in Pairc Sean on Saturday evening last. Although the North Leitrim team dominated the first half, they were unable to turn their territorial superiority into scores and an early second half goal from Brian Conroy set up a semi-final meeting in a fortnight’s time with neighbours Gortletteragh on a scoreline of 1-11 to 1-6. The team on Saturday was: Feargal Mc Gill, Damian Mc Guinness, Seamus Mallon, John Mc Guinness, Jason Conroy, Colm Farrell, Shane Conroy, Michael Duignan (0-2), Gary Mc Closkey, Philip Howard, Trevor Howard (0-2), David O Connor, Brian Conroy (1-4), Mark Mc Closkey (0-3) and Jonathan Duffy. Sub used Robert Moran.

The Ladies were in Championship action on Sunday against a very strong Kiltubrid team. A poor start was to cost us dearly and despite a brave second half rally, Kiltubrid held on for a deserved victory.
