Leitrim v Roscommon
Best wishes to Ray Cox and the Leitrin team in the Hyde on Sunday. Despite not getting promotion, Leitrim under Sean Hagan have made great strides. We must forget “ The Willie Hegarty Factor” where every Roscommon player is an All Star and all Roscommon teams are brilliant. If Roscommon were so good, they would not have been playing in Division 3. Leitrim have beaten Roscommon in their last three competitive matches and are more than capable of winning. Remember in the F.B.D final, Leitrim won easily. Best of luck also to David Duignan and Leitrim in the Junior final.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery are extended to Gerard McGarry, Corduff, after a short spell in hospital.
