It may be just a few short weeks since the 2016 GAA came to a conclusion with Mohill emerging triumphant in the Division 1 Final but attention is now firmly fixed on what 2017 has to offer.
The GAA calendar will begin slightly earlier than originally planned as the county's U-21 footballers will be in action on Monday afternoon, January 2 when they face Wicklow in the Hastings Cup in Cloone (2pm).
Also in Leitrim's group in the Hastings Cup are Meath, who Leitrim will face on Saturday, January 7 in Dunganny (2pm) and Offaly who Leitrim will host a week later on Saturday, January 14 in Pairc Sean MacDiarmada (2pm).
