Leitrim got their Allianz Division 4 League campaign back on track last weekend when they comprehensively defeated Kilkenny in Ballyragget (3-19 to no score). As the score-line suggests Leitrim were completely dominant throughout the game. In the first half they were against a gale force wind and chalked up 1-9 and with the winds at their backs in the second half they added a further 2-10.
Emlyn Mulligan made his first start in 2011 and was impressive with 9 points (6 from placed balls). Well done to Robert Lowe (St Marys), Conor Kelly (Dromahair) and Fergal Clancy (Glenfarne/Kilty) who all made their Allianz League debuts. Also many thanks to the Leitrim supporters who made the long journey to Kilkenny to support the team.
