The Allianz League kicked off on Sunday last in Páirc Seán MacDiarmada with Leitrim and Longford playing out a thrilling draw on a scoreline of 0 – 15 to 1 – 12. It was a wonderful game for the first day of spring. The two sides will be happy enough with the draw as both had good chances of winning this tie. The Leitrim management had the team in good shape with no player found wanting on the day. Our two clubmen played well with goalkeeper Cathal McCrann being called on to pull off some good saves. Young Niall Woods, playing his first senior league game, was up for the challenge. Well done lads and all the best in your game against Wicklow next weekend.
Congratulations to Margaret and Colm Mitchell, Cattan on the recent birth of their son, Peter Noel. We wish the family a lifetime of happiness and God’s blessing in their lives.
