Leitrim Captaincy

Emlyn Mulligan has the honour of captaining the Leitrim senior footballers for the 2013 season. 

A key figure in Melvin Gaels county championship victory in 2012, Emlyn has recently transferred to the St Brigid’s Club in Dublin, but his heart is firmly set on success for Leitrim in the coming year.  His first ambition is to lead the county to promotion in the Allianz National League, in preparation for the Connacht Championship encounter against New York in gaelicPark. 

For the past number of years Emlyn has been among the county’s top scorers and featured in the top ten nationally in 2012.  He has thankfully recovered from a number of injuries that had threatened to curtail his playing career. 

Wayne McKeon of the Ballinamore Sean O’Heslin’s Club takes up the mantle of Vice Captain and has the tigerish leadership qualities befitting the role.

We wish Emlyn, Wayne and the Leitrim team and management every success in the 2013 season.
