Leitrim Under 16s played Sligo last Tuesday in Ballinamore.  The best from both teams were picked to amalgamate to play in a tournament inÓgalway on the following saturday.  6/7 Leitrim players were picked to play but only 3 could travel on the day.  Joe McMorrow, Karl McDermott and Kevin Clerkin (Cluainin Iomaint) travelled with Sligos best to play in a tournament in Salthill Galway. All three played against the tough opposition of Mayo, Roscommon and Liam Mellows Minor team of Galway.  Special thanks to Steve Feeney who travelled with the team to Salthill.

Minor Hurling championship will be a straight knock out –

Leitrim Senior Hurling league-
Last Monday Cluainin Iomaint travelled to play St. Marys.  On a very wet evening the pitch could not be faulted and provided perfect conditions for hurling. The half time score was St. Marys 0.03 to Cluainin Iomaint 0.07.  In the second half Cluainin extended their lead and won out fairly comfortably on a score line of St. Marys 0.06 to Cluainin Iomaint 0.17.  Both teams were missing county players but this league has been set up to provide hurling to those who wish to play the game more.  So far it has been a good success with Gortlettragh and Cluainin with a win each.  Neither club will read too much into this as St. Marys continue to dominate hurling when championship time comes around. Next fixture is on Monday 25th when Cluainin Iomaint travel to Gortlettragh.
