The big Local Derby on Sunday in Pairc Sean at 2.00 also live on R.T.E. Leitrim have exceeded expectations already by beating Sligo fancied by many for the Connacht title.The Leitrim win was no surprise for supporters who saw their league matches as apart from the Carlow match they played really well as a team. There is no point in hyping up an average Roscommon team with two or three very good forwards so at 4.00 on Sunday Leitrim may be in the Connacht final. Best of luck to Dermot Reynolds and the team.
