Fresh from the FBD Connacht League Home Final victory over Sligo, Leitrim supporters are now turning their attention to the league but more than a few are planning a trip to New York for the eagerly awaited Connacht Championship clash in the Big Apple.
Leitrim footballers won a trip to the Big Appel to play New York in the FBD Final next October but it is the trip to New York in May for the first round of the Connacht Championship in Gaelic Park, Bronx against New York on Sunday May 5, that will capture all the interest of supporters.
Leitrim have traditionally brought big support out to New York and with a large amount of the county’s natives living stateside, there is always a warm welcome for Leitrim.
Interest in the trip has surged and Cathal Brady of Brady Travel reports that bookings have been busy this week following a great FBD run. Cathal says there are a number of packages available for departures in early May for 4, 5, 6 and 7 nights with most supporters option primarily for Manhattan as a base followed by Yonkers as the next most popular area to stay in the Big Apple.
