Under 14 School of excellence
Last Sunday a panel from our under 14 school of excellence played Dublin club, Castleknock in Ballinamore. Castleknock are a relatively new club on the Dublin GAA seen and have many Leitrim connections including Aughawillan man Seamus McKiernan who organised the game. While the Leitrim lads ran out worthy winners and played some good football in the process, the game was very competitive right to the end. We would like to thank the Castleknock players and mentors for travelling to Leitrim and we plan to foster closer links with the club into the future.


The game planned for this Friday evening against Sligo has had to be called off due to under 14 fixtures in Sligo.
