It was a busy day today in Leitrim as we had competitions in Hurling, Handball and Ladies League:
Leitrims opener in the Allianz National Hurling League Div. 3A at home in Carrick ended in a draw as the hurlers finished Leitrim 1-09 0-12 Louth.
This was a good start to the League for Leitrim who are playing with a similar lineout to last years team.
Competing today in the Senior Handball Championship final were Kiltubrid?s Noel Gill and Drumshanbo?s Martin Raftery. The game was played in the Mayflower in Drumshanbo and was a competitive affair with Martin Raftery winning the 2 games in a best of three competition. The results were 21 – 13 and 21 – 8.
Other awards presented at the Mayflower included the Connacht Novice B Doubles Handball Award which was won 2 weeks ago by Kiltubrids pairing of Niall Foley and James Gill (a brother of Senior finalist Noel Gill).
Leitrim Ladies preformed in style to-day in Tuam to win their League game against Clare by 10 points. The final score was Clare 0-10 to Leitrims 3-11, the goal spree proving too much for the Clare Ladies.
Leitrim Team: Louise Loughlin, Amanda Sweeney, Maeve Quinn, Camilla McDonagh, Sharon Kerrigan, Mary McKeon, Eilis Quinn, Sarah McLoughlin, Emer McGlade, Clare Owens, Karen McGovern, Phillipa Maguire, Ann Marie Cox, Sinead Quinn, Anna Conlan.
