Feile success for two Leitrim Clubs



Coiste Chontae Liatroma extends congrats to Gortletteragh and Ballinamore SOH who claimed victory at the recently held Feile na nÓg and Feile na nGael Finals held in Derry and Clare respectively.

Gortletteragh Footballers powered to victory having built up an early lead with the advantage of the wind in the 1st half. They never looked in any danger in the 2nd half despite Kildares Robertstowns spirited performance. Final score Div 6 Final – Gortletteragh 3-10, Robertstown 1-2. Meanwhile Ballinamore SOH U14 Hurlers created history by becoming the 1st Leitrim team in the 40 year history of Feile na nGael to win at the Feile competition. The team beat Old Christians from Limerick in the Division 6 Final on a scoreline of Ballinamore SOH 2-2 to Old Christians 0-3.

In recent years Leitrim Clubs such as Drumreilly boys and St Josephs girls have won titles at Feile and Ballinamore and Gortletteragh continued the tradition and in doing so do Club and County proud at National Level. Again well done to the teams and especially their mentors.
