Leitrim Ladies Notes:
[b]League Round Up:[/b]
Due to the poor weather conditions a number of games had to be called off at the weekend. In the games that went ahead in Division 1 Aughawillan continued their winning ways with a 7.09 to 2.02 win over Mohill while Kiltubrid had to withstand a strong comeback from Cloone to hold out for a one point win. Kiltubrid enjoyed a good opening half with Siobhan Kelly very accurate in front of goals and finished with a personal tally of 2.04. The final score was Kiltubrid 4.07 to 2.12 for Cloone. All three games in Division 2 were called off but in Division 3 Fenagh enjoyed a 4.17 to 0.02 win over newcomers Glenfarne while Dromahair travelled to Aughnasheelin and scored a comprehensive 7.17 to 3.01 win. Next weekend Aughawillan B and Gortlettragh meet in Division 3 of the league.
The All Ireland Colleges finals were hosted by Dundalk IT at the weekend with a number of Leitrim players involved in the finals. In the premier competition Sharon Kerrigan from St Josephs was part of the UCD team that defeated Sligo I.T. in the O?Connor Cup Final by 6 points while Aughawillan?s Eimear McGlade and Deirdre McDermott from Mohill featured for the DCU team that comprehensively beat British Colleges Champions Liverpool in the Lynch Cup. Finally the Cavan Colleges team featuring Cloone?s Aoife Kelly were unlucky to lose the Donaghy Cup Final when they conceded two late goals to GMIT who took the title with a five point win. Well done to all concerned.
[b]County Round Up:[/b]
After a break of four weeks Leitrim host Offaly in the final round of the league on Sunday next. A win or a draw will see Leitrim top Division 3A and earn a quarter final game against the winners of Kilkenny and Antrim two weeks later. Leitrim travelled to Portlaoise on Saturday evening last to play a challenge game against Wexford, their opponents in last years All Ireland Quarter Final. The game was a useful workout for all of the panel and ended in a a 3-7 to 0-10 win for Wexford. On Saturday next our Minor team travel to play Roscommon in the first round of the Connacht Championship. See fixtures for details of next weekends games.
