Following their dramatic victory over Lancashire the Leitrim hurlers are currently making their way down the N4 to Carrick-on-Shannon where they and the Lory Meagher Cup will be paraded in front of supporters at half time in this evening's All-Ireland football qualifier between Leitrim and Clare in Avantcard Pairc Sean MacDiarmada.
There has been a huge reaction online to the victory with Leitrim natives and supporters from other counties quick to congratulate the Leitrim heroes.

Not a huge crowd here but it clearly means so much to Leitrim to win a trophy in Croke Park. One the GAA's better ideas to let them play there.— Balls.ie (@ballsdotie) June 22, 2019
