Congratulations to Leitrim Gaels who were crowned GWP Leitrim Junior A Football Champions for 2012 in Cloone today when they defeated Gortletteragh in a hugely entertaining final on a scoreline of 1-14 to 1-11.
The success of one of our long established clubs, Gortletteragh, in capturing the Intermediate Championship this year and moving on to Senior status left a vacancy to be filled in next years Intermediate Championship. Remarkably, Gortletteragh themselves were hoping to fill the void but that was not to be as one of our youngest clubs, Leitrim Gaels will now fill the void. Judging on todays performance they will not be found wanting in next years Intermediate Championship.
Leitrim Gaels now represent Leitrim in the AIB Connacht Club Junior Football Championship where they meet the Galway champions next weekend (venue TBC).
We take this opportunity to again congratulate them on winning their first major trophy since they were formed in 1997 and wish them the very best of luck on the road in Connacht.
