The County Senior football team may be normally the centre of attention but next weekend, they will take second place to the Leitrim U21 and Hurling teams who both go for Final glory.

The U21 football side take on favourites Roscommon in the Connacht Final on Saturday in Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada (2.30 throw-in) as they bid to win the title for the first time since 1991 and only the third time ever.

And on Sunday, the Hurlers appear in their first national final since 1986 when they take on table toppers Tyrone in the Division 3B League Final in Markievicz Park (3.45 throw-in).

The two finals may command most attention but the Ladies football team are in action in Ballinamore on Sunday against Tipperary as they seek to book a place in the Division 3 League semi-finals (2.00 throw-in).

With the Minor and Senior football squads also in action, it promises to be one of the busiest GAA weekends of the year.
