County Game – The County boys had their first defeat of the League on Sunday last but they put up a good performance with neither side anxious to show their hand. Nice to see Mohill’s Oisín Madden joining Shane Quinn and Domhnaill Flynn on the panel. Sunday next they play Waterford, so a large crowd will boost the morale as they head to Croke Park. It is hoped to run a bus from Mohill to the Div 4 final so contact Therese Foy or any club officer re same.

Underage – The weather dictated play all last week with cancellations all round.

Underage – The weather had a negative influence on fixtures last week with Under 13 and 17 games cancelled mid-week. The Under 17s met a very strong St Joseph’s on Sunday morning. Mohill were short five of the first team through injury so the result was predictable. Nevertheless, those present played their hearts out till the final whistle. The full panel was: C Mulligan, L Ellis, N McNabola, T McNabola, G Reynolds, B Donohue, C Quinn, S Bohan, A McCrann, K Curran, C Macklin, S Moran, A Luby, M Murphy. Watch fixtures for underage games.

Div 4 – Mohill collected full points from this Div 4 game with Bornacoola on Saturday last. It was a very competitive game with two well-matched teams. Veteran player John McGuinness scored a vital goal but it was Niall Flynn’s massive point from almost the halfway line that clinched the victory for Mohill in the end. The full panel was: J Farry, S Kilrane, K Reilly, K Flynn, P McLoughlin, C Baxter, N Flynn, C Keegan, S Kennedy, Colm Beirne, J Farrell, J McGuinness, Conor Beirne.

County Team – Congratulations to the County players and management on promotion to Division 3 and a place in the Div 4 final in Croke Park at the end of March. The game against London was a nervous affair and underfoot conditions did not help but the team never lost their concentration and there were great celebrations when the game was over. Our lads Domhnaill and Shane were not found wanting and both have contributed immensely in every game. Our roguish Shane Quinn scored an important goal. Shane is striving to outdo his father Mickey Quinn (Cloone) who in 1990 scored a vital goal in a play-off that gave Leitrim promotion to Division 2. Shane has a long road ahead to catch up on his father’s feats- but it’s a start.

Recent Death – We extend deepest sympathy to the family of Maura Ridge who died in Westport last week. Maura was wife of the late Art and mother of Avril and Martin. Martin played underage for Mohill and Art was also heavily involved in football and hurling in this club. May her gentle soul rest in peace.

Fundraising – We are giving notice that there will be a big fundraiser in June/July to keep the club running. Catering for an amazing amount of adults and children costs a lot of money each year and without the support of the ordinary people of Mohill and the surrounding parishes the club would not survive. People are also urged to join the Lotto which if fully subscribed would also be a great help. Join online by logging intohttps://play.clubforce.com/play_newa.asp?LL_ID=1283#Anchor

County Team – There was a theatrical atmosphere in Aavantcard Pairc Seán on Sunday last with standing ovations at half-time and a prolonged one at the end of their performance against Antrim by this young Leitrim team. It would be unfair to single out any player but in severe weather conditions Domhnaill Flynn gauged the wind to perfection in the dying moments to earn Leitrim a one- point victory. Next outing Kilmallock on Saturday week.

County Ladies – Having weathered a few storms over the last few months, the Leitrim got their season off to a good start with a win over Derry in Ballinamore on Sunday last
