On Sunday next Leitrim travel to Castlebar to take on Sligo in the TG4 Connacht Junior Final. With a 2.00pm throw in this is another opportunity for Leitrim to win a Connacht title last achieved in 1999. This is the fifth year in a row that Leitrim have contested the final, having been defeated by Sligo in the last 3 outings, it surely is Leitrim?s turn to take the prize. The 2006 panel have given a massive commitment this year, but there must be 100% focus and hard work over the hour if Sligo are to be dethroned. Supporters are asked to come in their numbers to support the team, the least they deserve for their efforts. Best of luck to all concerned.
