National Football blitz day: Our U15 squad had a good day in Longford on Saturday last in the first of this year’s National blitz. Our first game against Sligo was a very one sided affair with Leitrim winning easily. The second game against Louth proved to be a very competitive game with Leitrim winning by six points. Well done to all the lads.
Primary school blitz: Our third and fourth class Primary school blitz have been badly hit by the poor weather over the past two weeks. Blitz have taken place in Aughavas, Gortletteragh, Drumkeerin and Ballinamore, but we were forced to cancel the blitz planned for Dromahair, Drumshanbo & Carrick. We will try and reschedule over the next few weeks.
