Under 13 Connacht Feile

Cluainín Iomaint and Carrick U13s travelled to Padraig Pearse’s in Woodmount just outside Ballinasloe last Saturday to take part in the Connacht Feile Blitz.  Cluainín played Naomh Eoin of Sligo, RoscommonÓgaels and Cois Farraige of Galway. They lost by 3 points to Naomh Eoin, drew with RoscommonÓgaels and lost 2.04 to 4.08 to the Galway side.  Carrick played Ballyhaunis of Mayo, Athleague of Roscommon and the Carrick side had a good win over Ballyhaunis and lost narrowly in their last two games. These results prove that there is good work being done by clubs in Leitrim and show that both teams are well able to compete with other counties in Connacht. 

National  U14 Feile in Dublin 

Well done to Paddy O Connor and his Ballinamore Under 14 hurlers who took part in the National Feile in Dublin.  The Ballinamore club competed admirably and represented Leitrim proudly with some excellent displays of hurling.  The following were their results:

Cootehill Celtic 1.03 Ballinamore 0.02

Setanta 2.01 Ballinamore 1.04

St. Marks 0.02 Ballinamore 1.06


Congratulations to Michael Gordon who has coached his Easkey hurlers to winning the Division 5 title.  This is a great achievement for a team from a non traditional hurling county. 

Thurles Sarsfields Huling Tournament

Cluainín Iomaint will take the long road to Tipperary to take part in the 40th anniversary of the Thurles Sarsfields hurling tournament this weekend.  Tipperary native Val Cronin will line out for the Manorhamilton team at full forward as he returns home where he played his hurling with Thomas Davins.  Cluainín will play Kilmoyler of Kerry and Kilbrin of Cork.
