Our Minor panel under the management structure of Damien Eames, PJ Clancy, Mal Guckian and Brendan Duignan have put in a huge effort and commitment to training in preparation for the Minor Championship and we wish them the very best of luck. Why not come out and support this great bunch of Lads.The under 16 league is nearly finished with the final few games in the 9 aside being played. Well done to Drumkerrin who defeated Allen Gaels in the 15 aside final and to Drumreilly who overcame Mohill in the 13 aside final.

The under 16 championship is due to commence in the end of August.The under 14 and minor championships are provisionally due to start on the 9th and 14th of July respectively.The under 12s are nearly finished a series of blitzs which have replaced the league, with mostly positive comments coming from them.

This year is the last year we will have an under 12 championship in Leitrim under a direction from Croak Park. The championship will commence at the end of August.The under 8s and under 10s go games blitzs are ongoing with a very positive response coming from them, the idea being that all childrenÓget a chance to play with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment from the games rather than winning or loosing.
