Fixtures & results
Our Division 3 team lost by a good few points in the league over the weekend to near neighbours, Allen Gaels.  The under 16 team kick of the 2013 league season this Friday evening May 3rd with a home fixture in Kiltubrid at 7 pm when we play Annaduff. The Under 16's have an abye in round 2 and are then fixed to play Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher away in round 3 on Friday week, May 10th.

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.

A 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.
