Leitrim Ladies Vs Westmeath Replay
The first thing noticed by the Leitrim players upon taking to the pitch last Saturday evening was the amount of Leitrim support that had travelled to Emmet Park on Saturday evening. There was a wonderful array of Leitrim Flags, Banners and Jerseys surrounding the grounds and the team would like to sincerely thank all the supporters and we hope to see you all again when the Championship begins in June.
We were on the losing end of the game down by 4 points at the final whistle after going in at half time leading by a point. The second half did just not go our way marred by stoppages and injuries to both teams. Its onwards and upwards though as things will go back to normal and training starts in earnest for the championship. We had a wonderful League campaign which will truely stand to us in the Intermediate Championship.
Well done to the Westmeath Team and Management on the win and the best of luck to them next year in Division 2 and in their Championship campaign. Some photographs from the final are available here.

On another note our wonderful Full Forward Ms Aine Tighe jets off to Toronto on Wednesday morning – she is travelling to play with the All Star team – we wish her a safe journey and dont forget to come home to us!
All was not lost though last weekend as we found out that five of our team were selected on the Division 3 Team of the League. The team is voted on by the team Managers of all teams in the league. Starting at the back receiveing an award tonight at a Gala Dinner in Croke Park is Goalie Michelle Guckian (St Marys), Full Back Enya McWeeney (St Marys), Wing Back Kirby Gilgunn (Sean OHeslins), Midfielder Sinead Fowley (Dromahair) and Full Forward Aine Tighe (Kiltubrid). A fanastic achievement for the five Ladies and all the team. As always you do your families, team mates, Clubs, County and parishes proud!
