Trip to Tipp for Leitrim Ladies:
An early start on Easter Sunday for the Leitrim ladies as they travel to Templemore on Sunday for the league quarter final against Tipperary at 1.00pm. The team will be hoping to rediscover last year’s form as the business end of the seasonÓgets underway. They have found the going very tough in the league to date with just a single win over Limerick but this win retained Division 2 status for another year the first goal of the season. Tipperary enjoyed a much better campaign with three wins against Wexford, Down and Roscommon and a draw against Longford to top Division 2B. Tipperary have been progressing steadily in recent years and were crowned Division 3 champions in addition to securing the Munster Championship title two years ago. The teams last met in competitive action in Division 3 of the National League seven years ago where Leitrim enjoyed a 1.18 to 1.03 victory in Annaduff and indeed went on to win the title defeating Galway in the final. Sunday’s game will be a difficult test for a Leitrim team who will need to improve on previous performances if they are to progress in the competition.
