Ladies Connacht Intermediate Championship – The Leitrim Ladies played Roscommon in the intermediate championship on Sunday last in Carrick on Shannon. The girls were defeated by a stronger Roscommon team. Hard luck to all involved
Intermediate Team – The intermediate team recorded their first victory of the year when they came from behind to overcome a strong Glencar/Manorhamilton in Division 2 on Sunday last. Played at a sunny Dromod, a first-half goal from full forward Anthony Mulligan helped the Bors settle into the game but a glut of missed chances meant they led by just a single point at half time. An early second-half goal from Ronan Mulligan appeared to put the Bors in the driving seat but Manor enjoyed an excellent spell of dominance in the middle period of the half, scoring a goal of their own and moving two points clear with just eight minutes remaining. However, a great Bornacoola move that culminated with Cian Mallon flicking the ball to the Manor net restored the home side’s lead and in a frantic finish, the Bors kept their nerve and a well taken Liam Jones point put the issue beyond doubt as Bornacoola held on for a 3-8 to 1-10 victory. This Sunday Ballinaglera are the vistors to Dromod for a 2pm throw-in. Team on Sunday was Daniel Farrell, Kevin Mulligan, David Mulligan, Damien Mc Guinness, Allan Croghan, Jason Conroy, Mervyn Howard, Cian Mallon (1-0), Liam Jones (0-1), Liam Mulligan (0-1), Conor Mc Cauley (0-2), Ollie Vaughan (0-1), Sean O Riordan (0-1), Anthony Mulligan (1-1) and Ronan Mulligan (1-2). Subs were Robert O Beirne, Luke Jones, Gearoid Mulligan and Conor Hackett.
Best Wishes – Our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Kevin Shanley who suffered a bad injury during the warm up before last Sunday’s game. Also to Luke Jones who is heading to Canada for the summer. Hopefully we’ll see both men back in the Black and Amber before too long.

The project was completed largely through voluntary labour – over 300 man hours were put into the job and for that we are hugely thankful to the Park Committee and all those who were involved but particularly Vinny Canning, Tommy Larkin, Noel Mc Closkey, Aidan Hackett, Tom Duignan, Sean Mc Cauley and Noel Carr.

The August bank holiday weekend will feature the various aspects of the club, the official opening of our pitch at Boggaun and the launch of the club’s history. To mark our Jubilee we are in the process of having a completely new design on our Senior team jersey, which will carry the logo of our main sponsor, MacManus Pharmacies on the jersey front. There has been great interest expressed locally among the community to have another sponsor on the back of these unique jerseys. Interested parties would include local groups & organisations/employers/the self-employed/businesses or individuals and club members wishing to promote a charity close to their hearts. The club has decided that the fairest way to decide this, is to have a raffle among those interested, by selling tickets for same for €50 each (three for €100). The winner will be drawn at a special function, at which everyone will be very welcome to attend. The lucky winner will be featured on the back of the Senior team jerseys for Championship in 2019 and receive a jersey with their chosen number on it while all the other entrants will be acknowledged on an advertising hoarding at Boggaun and on our social media platforms. For logistical reasons, the logo will appear on the senior jerseys only and not on any replicas and will apply for the 2019 season, our very special Jubilee Year. If you are interested in buying a ticket or require further information please do not hesitate to contact either Ciaran Sheridan, Collette Fox, Phil Flynn, Padhraic Corrigan or Gerry Hickey Junior.
