Letirim fans will have an early start on Sunday week, June 24, after it has been announced that the County Ladies team will open the day’s proceedings in McHale Park, Castlebar at 12 noon.

The Ladies are due to face Sligo in the new Connacht Intermediate Championship and the game has been fixed before the already scheduled Minor game between Mayo and Sligo and the main event, Leitrim’s meeting with Connacht Champions Mayo in the semi-final at 3.30.

Leitrim Minors are due to play Roscommon the previous evening in Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada, with the winners taking on Galway a week later.

It will make for a long day for Leitrim fans in Castlebar and a very early start for the Ladies team who are scheduled to start their TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Championship campaign in the first week of July, although the details of the groups have yet to be released.
