Fixtures and results
Kiltubrid hosted the Connaught Minor League under lights on Friday
night last when the Leitrim Minors took on Sligo. We would like to
thank all our stewards and helpers who came down on a cold night to
help out, it was very much appreciated. The end result was a draw with
a scoreline draw of 0-8 to 0-8. Leitrim beat Waterford in Pairc Sean
on Saturday last also in the Division 4 national league.
Congratulations to our Roscommon neighbours St Brigids on a fantastic

containing almost four hundred pages and more than two hundred and
eighty photographs,  many of them team pictures. Its contents include
the remarkable story of the founding, success and development of a
G.A.A. Club in a Dublin suburban community. The highs and lows on the
field of play in Football, Hurling, Ladies Football and Camogie how
the Club financed its development as well as many articles of special

hundred copies have been sold. This book would be of interest to any
G.A.A. member,  but it would be of exceptional interest to any Club or
