With two rounds left in the competition, Leitrim take on Lancashire next Sunday May 8, at 12.30 in O'Tooles GAA club, just off the Malahide road in north Dublin, knowing that a victory would go a long way to securing a place in the Lory Meagher Cup Final for a third time.

The had been originally fixed for further in the Malahide Road in Parnells GAA club but on Wednesday evening, the game was moved out to the Ayrfield Road pitch.

Table toppers Monaghan take on Longford on Saturday in Inniskeen while Louth host Cavan. Wins for Monaghan and Leitrim would leave them in pole position to contest the final on the weekend of May 21-22, but Louth, who face Leitrim in their final game, could also get themselves back into contention with a win against the Breffni blues on Saturday.

Supporters are reminded that if they are wish to attend the game, all tickets must be bought online in advance as there will be no ticket sales on the day. Tickets, costing €10, are available through HERE.
