As the two year term of the outgoing Senior Team Management has come to an end, following exit from the Championship earlier this month with the AIFQ Qualifier defeat to Monaghan, Leitrim GAA has decided to open up the process in looking towards the 2019 season. This decision had been intended to be inclusive of the outgoing management if they so decided to remain involved. Outgoing Team Manager Brendan Guckian has informed Leitrim GAA that he is not putting his name forward for consideration in this process.

Leitrim GAA would like to thank Brendan Guckian, Seamus Quinn, John O Mahony, Michael Moyles and their extended management backroom team for their selfless dedication and energy towards the cause of Leitrim GAA over the past two seasons. These people have all dedicated numerous hours and sacrificed much of their spare time in an effort to improve an evolving squad. Over this period they have presided over the introduction of a large number of young players to inter-county action, players who have made steady positive progress, as Leitrim Senior Team reached AIFQ Round 3 for the first time recently and in doing so were the last remaining Division 4 team to exit the championship, having reached the last 16. We thank this outgoing management team for their most valued contribution over the last two seasons in facilitating this progress, which included victories over London in 2017 and New York last May in the Connacht SFC and an AIFQ Rd 2 victory over Louth last month.

A committee has been put in place to preside over the next steps as we look towards finalising a management team for 2019, and clubs have been invited, as part of this process, to submit team management nominees, conditional on having sought a nominee’s permission.

The Leitrim Under 16 Football Academy has been granted a place in the prestigious 2018 Gerry O Reilly Tournament. This is a great opportunity for these young players to test themselves against Leinster opposition. The upcoming fixtures are as follows:

Round 1 Saturday 21st July 12noon at Oldcastle

Meath v Leitrim

Round 2 Saturday 28th July 12 noon at Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada

Leitrim v Louth

Round 3 Date, Time and Venue TBC

Offaly v Leitrim

Leitrim GAA has been alerted to the following local travel disruption:

“The No. 1 train from the city is not running all the way up to 242nd street. No train from 137th to 242nd. They will have shuttle buses. Maybe you can put it on your website for the supporters that are traveling out. Maybe best they use Uber or allow more time to get to the game if they plan on taking the train.”

CCCC has confirmed that a number of outstanding Allianz League Fixtures which were postponed due to the recent bad weather have now officially been declared null and void. This includes the Waterford v Leitrim tie.

The official GAA statement is here

Today’s rescheduled match v Waterford has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.

The Central Competitions Control Committee has confirmed that the Allianz Leagues Roinn 4 refixture Waterford v Leitrim will go ahead in Ardmore tomorrow (Monday) at 2pm.

The Allianz Leagues Roinn 4 fixture Waterford v Leitrim which fell victim to the weather this morning has been provisionally refixed for tomorrow, March 19th, at 2pm in Ardmore. This is pending a further pitch inspection by 6pm this evening. We will keep you updated.

Today’s Allianz Football League match in Ardmore versus Waterford has been postponed due to overnight weather conditions that have affected the Waterford region.

Leitrim GAA Supporters Club will run a supporters bus to the Allianz League Round 3 fixture versus Carlow in Carlow on Saturday next, February 10th, if there are sufficient numbers interested that make it a viable venture. Could patrons interested in availing of a bus please contact Jerome McWeeney ASAP at 0876370051.
