The Leitrim squad had a successful day, defeating squads from Sligo and Fermanagh, loosing only to Roscommon in their last game. The team were short players from St. Mary?s, and Sean O? Heslins due to the under 16 final . We in coaching would like to thank all players involved in the squads for this year and wish them well in the future. We would also like to thank team mentors Martin Mc Gowan, Jerome Quinn, Barney Breen, James Holohan and Eamon Mc Gowan for all the work they put into the squads during the year.
