I am a Leitrim man in exile here in Roscommon over a long number of years. I always dread when Leitrim are playing at any level. After every defeat I am a figure for fun when I go to my local. After the last hammering of both Minors and Seniors, I sure got more than enough ribbing.
As I get your Observer each week, might I ask you to publish this letter after the hammering and put this suggestion?
Would now not be the appropriate time for Leitrim to abandon any further activities in football and leave it to those counties that do the game proud.
I would like to see if there are many Leitrim people out there with similar thinking.
