One More Step

One More Step


Leitrim is but one step away from a Connacht Senior Final, a rare enough occurrence in our footballing story.

So every supporter of the Green and Gold is encouraged to be in Páirc Seán MacDiarmada on Sunday next for the eagerly awaited clash with London, victors over Sligo at Ruislip. We need no reminding of the Championship clash between the sides way back thirty six years ago, when every Leitrim Gael was on a high after the county captured its first ever Connacht Under 21 Championship title and had run a star-studded Kerry team so, so close in the All Ireland Semi-final. London put a halt to our euphoria by knocking us out of the Connacht Senior Championship.

A new generation of players are now centre-stage, with London in a particularly confident mood and chomping at the bit for a truly historic appearance in the Connacht Final. Leitrim have similar aspirations, so a cliff-hanger is in store.

What could make a distinct difference is the home support and the chants of “Lei-trim Lei-trim” ringing from every corner of Páirc Seán.

So a call goes out to Leitrim followers to be there to cheer on their county and help it take that one big step into the Connacht Final on July 21st.
