In recent weeks our Senior and Junior Football champions and our Senior Hurling champions were all on provincial club duty in the AIB Club Championships. Unfortunately, Melvin Gaels in the Senior, Leitrim Gaels in the Junior and Cluainín Iomaint in the Hurling were all defeated in their opening round games.
Last Sunday Gortletteragh were the last team to fly the Leitrim Flag in McHale Park, Castlebar against Charlestown of Mayo in the AIB Connacht Intermediate Football Championship. Despite a brave attempt on the day, Gortletteragh came out the wrong side of a 1-13 to 3-15 scoreline. The scoreline didnt reflect the closeness of the contest with Charlestown Scóring two late goals. The Man of the Match Award was rightly awarded to Gortletteraghs Cathal McCrann and well done to Cathal on his terrific performance.
Gortletteraghs defeat ends Leitrims participation in the Connacht Club Championship for another year.
