Leitrim Ladies vital Tesco Home Grown Ladies Division 3 playoff game with Tipperary has been fixed for Moate in Co Westmeath next Sunday at 2 pm.

Leitrim have beaten the Premier County women already in the League proper, 5-7 to 3-10, but the final scoreline hides the remarkable story of a match where Leitrim trailed by 11 points but staged an amazing comeback to snatch the win.

Tipperary will be gunning for revenge and in the past, they have handed Leitrim some heavy beatings but if Leitrim can replicate their form of the League encounter, where Aine Tighe and Laura O’Dowd ran riot in the second half.

The winners will qualify for a semi-final meeting with Armagh on the weekend of April 28, as Leitrim will be determined to avenge their first League defeat of the campaign when they lost to the Orchard County side by four points in Ballinamore.
