The County scene might not be quite over but the Leitrim Ladies Club championship is already up and running with the first round of the McCormack's Mace Leitrim Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championships.
Defending champions St Joseph's were not in action but last year's defeated finalists Glencar/ Manorhamilton made short work of Oughteragh Gaels when they ran out 5-13 to 2-10 winners, a 12 point winning margin for the north Leitrim side.
Former Connacht Club finalists Kiltubrid also showed they meant business when they defeated St Francis by ten points, their 3-11 to 0-10 victory a sign that they will be hard beaten this year.
In the Intermediate grade, Aughawillan are obviously determined to make a quick return to the Senior ranks after they had two points to spare over Division 2 finalists Mohill, winning 1-13 to 2-8, while county star Vivienne Egan scored 2-6 as she led Annaduff to a 4-8 to 1-9 victory over Fenagh.
In the only Junior championship game, new Division 3 champions Keeldra Gaels scored a comprehensive 6-23 to 2-8 victory over St Francis' second string team.
