Part 7 – This time we look at the Junior Championship Finalists going back as far as 1917

[b]JUNIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS[/b]

(This list is for the overall Leitrim Junior Championship. From 1932-1970, the North Leitrim Championship winners played the South Leitrim Junior Championship winners in the County Final. In years where the North Leitrim winners did not compete particularly during the Second World War, the South Leitrim Champions are regarded as County Champions. This was so because the North Leitrim Board was always a subsidiary of the South Board. For most of the missing years there was no Junior Championship)
