The Leitrim exodus to New York has been underway for several days now with the team and management arriving safely in the Big Apple on Thursday.

Before attention turns entirely to Sunday's big game, take a few minutes to turn the clock back five years and enjoy this gallery of images taken of fans and players at Gaelic Park five years ago.

A large crowd is once again expected to make their way to Gaelic Park in the Bronx for Sunday's match (throw-in 7.15pm Irish time) with spectators having made their way to New York from all corners of the county and from further afield.

While some are tipping New York to record their first ever Connacht Championship victory, hopes remain high among the Leitrim supporters that the Green & Gold will emerge victorious and secure a place in the Connacht Championship semi-final against Roscommon which is scheduled for May 26.
