Lory Meagher Cup 2015

The Leitrim Hurlers will be hoping to continue their recent rich vein of form as they head to Brewster Park, Enniskillen, tomorrow for a 5pm throw in. Following two good wins over Warwickshire and Lancashire, the hurlers are right back in contention for a place in the Lory Meagher Cup Final 2015. 

A win over the heretofore unbeaten Fermanagh would have Leitrim awaiting the results of the final round of fixtures on Saturday week when the finalists will ultimately be decided.

Fermanagh play Sligo in their final group game and Leitrim will have completed their four game series tomorrow. 

Its all to play for for the team and we wish them the best of luck in tomorrows vital tie.

Lory Meagher Cup Leitrim v Lancashire

Following last weekend’s victorious trip to Birmingham, where the Leitrim Hurlers had a great victory over Warwickshire, it’s back to home soil again tomorrow as the lads face Lancashire in Ballinamore with a 2.30pm throw in.

Buoyed up by last week’s result we are hopeful of a home victory which would set up nicely a final round match on Saturday 23rd in Enniskillen versus Fermanagh.

In any event it’s one day at a time and for the moment let’s wish the team and management the very best of luck in tomorrow’s encounter.

 Liatroim Abú.

Leitrim Senior Hurlers open up the summers championship action as they face neighbours Sligo in the 2015 Lory Meagher Cup in Ballinamore on Saturday next at 5pm in Ballinamore.

Following on their very competitive Allianz League campaign, the hurlers will be hoping for a winning start to this years championship competition. The sides met earlier this season on March 15th with the Leitrim side coming out on the right side of a thrilling 1-15 to 2-10 victory in Markievicz Park In Allianz Leagues Round 2. A repeat result will set the lads up nicely for the trip to Birmingham to play Warwickshire next weekend.

Best of luck to the Management and Team!!

While most supporters are concentrating on our Under 21 footballers playing in the Connacht Final tomorrow against Roscommon, dont forget that our Senior hurlers are in action in the Allianz Hurling League Division 3B final against Tyrone in Markievicz Park at 3.45pm. You can read John Lynchs article on Shannonside or listen to an interview with Leitrim team Manager Martin Cunniffe about the big game. Seeing is believing.

Connacht Táin league –
In the Connacht Tain league Carrick hurling looked like they could reach the semi final by beating Bellmullet last Friday night but unfortunately in the dying seconds of the game Belmullet were given a life line when they were awarded a dubious penalty.  The final score saw Carrick going down by a point on a scoreline of 0.11 to 1.09.  Cluainin Iomaint were waiting on this scoreline with bated breath and were more than happy with this result as a win in their game would have sealed the semi final spot for them on Scóring difference.  Unfortunately Western Gaels could not field a team last Saturday and at the time of going to print it looks like Western Gaels will be awarding Cluainin a walk over which means that Cluainin, Carrick and Belmullet will be level on points. If a walk over is given then Scóring difference will not come into play and a three way play off will determine who plays against Castlebar Mitchels in the semi final.  In the other group of the Tain league Ballinamore were unable to play Sylane.
Under 16 Sligo league –
Cluainin Iomaint under 16stravelled to Western Gaels in Sligo last wednesday and won on a scoreline of 3.13 to 1.02. Matthew Kerrigan, Andrew Loughlin, Cian Killalea and captain Kieran McPartland worked hard in defence while Christopher Ferguson and Stephen Loughlin commanded midfield Scóring 1.03 between them. Martin Feeney, Damon Beattie, Fergus Munday and Luke Sheirdan created a lot of trouble in the forwards. Damon Beattie finished the match Scóring a massive 1.07. Daithi Cummins and Ferghal Ryan made their debuts for the hurlers and showed great promise. Team and scorers – Peter Poniard, Matthew Kerrigan, Andrew Loughlin, Cian Killalea, Kiernan McPartland (Cpatain) (0.01), Christopher Ferguson (0.02), Stephen Loughlin (1.01), Martin Feeney (0.02), Damon Beattie (1.07) Luke Sheirdan (1.00), Fergus Munday (0.01), Daithi Cummins, Ferghal Rooney.

Cluainin Iomaint under 16s play Coolera/Strandhill this Wednesday at 6.30pm at Ransboro pitch in Round 2 of the Sligo League.

County under 21 hurling

Leitrim play Sligo August 1st in Pairc Sean at 7pm. Leitrim should be quietly confident with many of their team playing on the senior team this year as they hope to beat their neighbours Wednesday week. All support welcome. 

Connacht under 16 hurling Development Squad

Well done to Cluainin Iomaints Karl McDermott, Ethan Clancy and Alan McSharry who represented Leitrim on the Connacht under 16 team who played Ulster recently. Karl McDermott lined out at mid field while Ethan Clancy played corner back and Alan McSharry played corner forward.

Leitrim U14 Development Squad

The Leitrim U14 Development Squad took part in the Inter County Hurling Blitz in Carnmore, Galway last Saturday. The team played teams from Sligo, Mayo and Roscommon and with only 15 lads they battled hard and never gave up with excellent displays from Desmond Beirne, Lee Mc Manus, Andrew Loughlin, Stephen Loughlin and Damien Crave. 

The Leitrim U14 Development Squad – Stephen Loughlin, Andrew Loughlin, Peter Poniard, Patrick Mc Tiernan, Keelan Keerins, Conor Gallagher, Darragh Murphy, James Hamilton, Damien Craven, Stephen Flynn, Aaron Hore, Lee Mc Manus, Dessie Beirne, Mark Diffley, Shane Beirne.  

Leitrim Hurling Senior League

So far Gortletteragh, Carrick and Cluainín Iomaint have all won a game each.  Carrick beat Cluainín well in the most recent game to keep alive their chances of reaching the final.  Games yet to be played are Cluainín and Gortletteragh at home and away while Gortletteragh will also have to play their final game against Carrick. 

Dermot Molloy League (Sligo Hurling League)

Cluainín Iomaint completed their involvement in the Sligo Hurling League last week by topping the table for the first time.  Unusually, they had to play a “play off” game against Coolera/Strandhill last Sunday due to the top 5 teams being level on points.  Cluainín already beat Coolera/Strandhill during the league but were “drawn out of a hat” to play again.  It an exciting game where either team could have won, the Sligo side overcame the Manorhamilton men on a scoreline of 1.10 to 0.07. The Manor men were left to dwell on many missed chances where they should have taken their points during the game.  But the Leitrim club can be happy knowing that they raised many eye brows by finishing top of the Sligo Hurling League for 2012.  Cluainín travel to Thurles on Friday week to take part in the Thurles Sarsfields International Hurling Tournament.  We wish them well as they represent Leitrim. 


We wish Paddy O Connor and Ballinamore the very best in this years Hurling Feile in Dublin.
