Leitrim V New York
Leitrim play New York in the opening game of the 2013 All Ireland Senior
Championship in Gaelic Park, New York on Sunday next. Best of luck to the
panel, management and all the backroom staff who are making the long trip to
the Big Apple.
number of our local supporters are also travelling over for the game. No doubt
they will do their best to enjoy the game and more importantly the build up and
the after match celebrations. We hope that there are a lot of old
acquaintances which will be renewed over a few beverages. Just remember
to adjust your watches so you don’t end up missing the important bit of the
weekend. Enjoy and we wish everyone who travel a safe trip.
