Leitrim face a tough task if they hope to repeat this year’s heroics in next year’s Connacht U21 Championship after the draw pitted Leitrim against the province’s two giants.

Leitrim have been handed a daunting U21 Championship draw as Shane Ward’s team will travel to play Mayo in McHale Park, Castlebar on Wednesday, March 11, in a preliminary round game under lights.
