LEITRIM 4-21   CARLOW 2-10
Leitrim maintained their 100% record in the Humphrey Kellegher Cup with facile victory at a sunny Carlow Training Centre yesterday. Leitrim led from pillar to post and their victory was never in doubt. After an initial period of pressure, Carlow converted from a placed ball to take an early lead but that was as good as it got for the Barrowsiders.
Leitrim kicked into gear over the next few minutes with early points from Conor Reynolds and Jack Attard to lead on 4 minutes. After a missed goal chance, Leitrim made amends very quickly over the next 5 minutes as they finished off 3 wonderful moves with goals through Jack Prior, Thomas Gunn and Ronan Fox. Carlow responded with another placed ball to leave Leitrim 9 points to the good after 15 minutes. The remainder of the opening period saw Leitrim tag on 6 more points through Sean Gaffney(2), Jack Attard(2), Conor Reynolds and Ronan Fox while Carlow added 3 of their own to leave the half-time score Leirim 3-8 Carlow 0-5.
Leitrim continued the 2nd half in much the same vane as the 1st. Senan McGowan, Jack Moolick and Sean Gaffney(2) stretched Leitrim’s lead before Carlow added 2 points of their own. Carlow then got through for their first goal but this was quickly cancelled out as Leitrim added points through Jack Prior, Jack Attard(2) and Senan McGowan.
Carlow got in for a 2nd goal in the 46th minute but again Leitrim responded with a wonderful 50-yard run by Jack Moolick that culminated in a clinical finish to the back of the Carlow net by the big midfielder. As the game reached an inevitable conclusion, 7 points were exchanged between the sides as Jack Attard, Conor Reynolds, Sean Gaffney and Jack Prior rounded off the scoring for a 2nd comprehensive victory in the Humphrey Kellegher Cup. With games to come against Fermanagh and Clare, Leitrim know one win may well be enough to propel them into the semi-final.
LEITRIM: Scott Kerr; John McGarry; Ronan Connolly; Charlie Slevin; Ultan McNulty; Rian Costello; Cillian McWeeney; Jack Moolick(1-1); Thomas Gunn(1-0); Gearoid Curley; Ronan Fox(1-1); Conor Reynolds(0-3); Sean Gaffney(0-6); Jack Prior(1-2); Jack Attard(0-6). Subs: Rhionn Gallagher; Senan McGowan(0-2); Shane Mayock
Leitrim U16s qualified for the Fr. Manning Cup semi-finals in some style with a comprehensive victory over a hitherto unbeaten Longford outfit. Aided by a number of returning U17 county players, Leitrim roared into action, blitzing Longford in the first quarter as they scored 2-6 without reply.
Leitrim attacked Longford from the throw-in and early points inside the first 3 minutes from Ruairi O’Rourke and Senan Bohan were quickly followed by goals from Gavin Gallagher and Kyle Russell within the following 3 minutes.  Leitrim then added 4 more points through Senan Bohan, Ruairi O’Rourke(2) and Sean Carolan Morris to round out the first quarter. Longford got their opening score of the game on 25 minutes and this was sandwiched between 4 further Leitrim scores from Sean Carolan Morris(a 45), Ruairi O’Rourke, Jack Kelly and Senan Bohan. This left the half-time score Leirim 2-10 and Longford 0-1.
Leitrim introduced a number of subs in the 2nd half but there was to be no comeback for Longford. Again Leitrim opened the half in whirlwind fashion adding 2-5 inside the first 15 minutes with 2 solitary replies from Longford. The Leitrim points came from Joey McBrien, Jack Kelly(2) and Ruairi O’Rourke(2) with Senan Bohan and Ruairi O’Rourke adding the goals. The final quarter proved to be Longford’s most productive as they added 1-6 to their tally. But not to be outdone Leitrim rounded off their scoring with a further 2-3 of their own with goals from Joey McBrien and Ruairi O’Rourke. Jack Kelly, Oisin Conlon and Ruairi O’Rourke added the last points of Leitrim’s total for an impressive win.
Leitrim will be buoyed by the fact that their squad has shown great depth in topping the group, at times playing games without a number of their U17 players. They will also realise that there will be tougher games ahead but the focus, for now, turns to preparing for a Fr. Manning Cup semi-final.
LEITRIM: Josh Sheridan; Oran Foley; Killian Mulvey; Luke Farrell; Peter Moran; Kyle Russell(1-0); Bailey McBride; Luke Fitzsimons; Cormac Moran; Gavin Gallagher(1-0); Senan Bohan(1-2); Sean Carolan Morris(0-2); Joey McBrien(1-1); Jack Kelly(0-4); Ruairi O’Rourke(2-8); Subs: Oisin Conlon(0-1); James Hughes; Tadhg Regan; Bobby Hanrahan; Aodh Gavin; Kevin Faughnan; Daire Shannon; Ben Harte.

Leitrim GAA wishes to be associated with the grief that surrounds the passing of the late Sean Clarke, Forosa, Gortletteragh and Mohill County Leitrim. Sean’s great battle with a sudden illness that befell him last December, ended on Thursday last, as he returned to his eternal reward.

Sean, whose brother Séamus is the current Leitrim Senior Team Sponsor, was himself a most dedicated Leitrim Supporter and often went to great lengths to support his county at home and away. As recently as last season he cycled to away games, and there’s not much longer a trip to undertake than a trip from Leitrim to Dungarvan on a bicycle in early Spring! A former player with the great Gortletteragh team of the 1980s, Séamus also represented the County at the Underage level.

In underlining the continuing generosity of the Clarke Family to Gaelic Games in the County, Sean himself was also a most generous sponsor over the years through his business interests in Mohill. When Leitrim LGFA started organising end-of-year county presentations in the 1990s, they took place in Clarke’s in Mohill and that continued until at least the mid-2000s. In 2003 Leitrim Ladies had their first-ever official team sponsor and it was Sean who stepped into the breach and he thus started a trend that has continued to the present day. Even after sponsors changed, Sean’s generosity towards Leitrim LGFA continued over many subsequent years.

We extend our sympathies to his son Darren and Sean’s partner Anella, brother Seamus and sister Eileen, sister-in-law Catriona, daughter-in-law Amy, nieces, nephews, relatives, neighbours and friends.

Sean will be reposing in Glennon’s Funeral Home, Ballinalee Road, Longford N39EC81, on Saturday, 1st April 2023, from 12 noon – 3.30pm with removal to St Patrick’s Church, Mohill, Co. Leitrim, via Forosa, Gortletteragh, to arrive for 5pm. Funeral Mass in St. Patrick’s Church, Mohill, on Sunday, 2nd April, at 2 pm, followed by burial afterwards in Gortletteragh Cemetery.

Ar dhes Dé go raibh sé.



The death has occurred of Arthur Boyle, late of Keadue, County Roscommon, and formerly of Aghacashel, County Leitrim. Arthur was a former PRO of Coiste Chontae Leitrim CLG during the 1970s and into the early 1980s. He would have made many incisive contributions to Leitrim GAA Yearbooks and other publications of that era in addition to reporting regularly on club matches and activities in the Leitrim Observer. He was famed for his contributions to the very essence of local GAA under the title Grassroots. He also served the board as a club referee and in his playing days, he would have represented Drumkeerin, while stationed there as a popular local Garda.

Arthur will be sadly missed by his much-loved wife Rosaleen, daughters Mairéad and Niamh, sons-in-law, Colm, Hugh and Dan, grandchildren, Doireann, Lucy, and Abigail, sister Bridie, uncle Robbie, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, relatives, neighbours, former work colleagues and his wide circle of friends. He will be laid to rest in Kilronan Cemetery, tomorrow, (Wednesday), following a celebration of his funeral mass in the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Keadue, at 12 noon.

Leitrim GAA offers its deepest sympathies to all his family on his sad passing.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.
