Leitrim Ladies Notes:
All Ireland Final:
And finally the preparations are almost complete for Leitrim?s big day on Sunday next. At 12.50pm Ann Marie Cox will lead out her 26 colleagues onto the turf of Croke Park. We want to thank everyone in advance for their good wishes and encourage all supporters to wear their Leitrim colours to the game and decorate their parishes in plenty of green and gold. We would also ask supporters to encourage the girls all through the game, as their vocal support will be crucial at all stages. Finally best of luck to all involved and the West County Hotel Cup will arrive in Dromod on Monday if all goes according to plan.
