Men in Black

Congratulations are in order to two Leitrim Men in Black who are making a presence at a provincial and national level.

Last Sunday [b]Ray McBrien[/b] (Aughavas) refereed the Connacht Junior Final between Roscommon and Mayo in Ballyhaunis. Roscommon ran out eventual winners.

[b]Frank Flynn[/b] (Aughawillan) was recently named as ?Best Developing Referee? by the National Referees? Committee. He was presented with this award by former GAA President Sean Kelly at a function in Croke Park.

Franks next assignment is a big one as he will take charge of the Tyrone V Louth All-Ireland Qualifier on Saturday at 3:30pm in Pairc Tailteann. This game will be live on RTE.

The Senior team may not have crossed the white line onto the field of play but at least two men are getting a chance to do their bit for the county. Well done to both Ray and Frank.
