I feel I must reply to the letter written in the Observer 6/7/12 with the headline “Abandon Football in Leitrim”. As stated, the man said he is from Leitrim. I wonder what frame of mind was he in when writing the letter.
As a proud Leitrim person myself, I certainly disagree with him about football in Leitrim. Mayo were a Div 1 and Leitrim are Div 4 so there is a big gap between the two teams. I hope Leitrim Seniors and Minors take heart and with a bit of luck in 2013 will prove this reader wrong.
