Ladies will crown first time Senior champions next Sunday

Who will succeed St Joseph's as Leitrim Ladies Senior Champions next Sunday?

A brand new name will be entered on the Ladies Senior Championship winners roll of honour next Sunday, regardless of who wins the final in Avantcard Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada.

Glencar Manorhamilton and Ballinamore Sean O'Heslins have never won the Ladies senior title but next Sunday's Final, sponsored by Gotham Dry Wall New York, will see one of them lift the Cup for the very first time.

Kiltubrid remain the most recent first time winners back in 2015 but they were preceded by first ever wins for St Joseph's (2012) and Dromahair (2011). The Aughavas & Carrigallen women are actually third in the roll of honour, compiled by Seán Ó Súilleabháin, behind Aughawillan (19) and Fenagh (6).

Ballinamore booked their place in the final when they beat Kiltubrid in a rearranged semi-final and you can read the views from Ballinamore and our County Final preview in this week's Leitrim Observer.
