Leitrim ladies feature on the double in Croke Park Finals

Leitrim supporters will have an opportunity to support two teams in the Ladies All Ireland Finals in Croke Park on 23rd September when Kiltubrids Naomi Lee and Linda Tighe line out for London in the Junior Final in the curtain raiser of the three match programme.

While Leitrim were defeating Clare on Saturday, Linda and Naomi were playing in the All Ireland junior semi final against Carlow in Swords and enjoyed a close 4-08 to 3-09 victory to qualify for the final against Kilkenny.

Both Linda and Naomi are no strangers to Leitrim ladies football and enjoyed long playing careers together with Leitrim until their move to London in recent years to study and where they are now both employed. They enjoyed considerable success with Leitrim and were part of the teams that won the Connacht Junior Championship in 1999 and the National Junior League of 2000.

The programme for the finals will be as follows:

12.00pm       Junior Final             London v Kilkenny
2.00pm        Intermediate Final    Leitrim v Wexford
4.00pm        Senior Final            Mayo v Cork
