The Leitrim Ladies Intermediate football bowed out of the TG4 All Ireland Intermediate Championship yesterday when Tyrone defeated Philip Brady’s side the quarter final which was played in Carrick-on-Shannon.
The Red Hand County went on to set up an All Ireland semi-final showdown with Sligo after a 4-16 to 1-10 victory. The Leitrim girls were unfortunate not to have scored a number of goals in the first half but had to make do with the just the one effort from Deirdre Ward. After the match the Leitrim manager called on the Ladies County Board to seek more investment for the ladies game in the county which he feels is falling behind when it comes to resources being available to the inter-county team.
In the men’s code in Leitrim there was a break in the action in the Leitrim Intermediate and senior Football championship action from over the weekend.
The main focus of attention over the weekend that has just concluded was on the Junior Football competition.
In Group One Annaduff were two piont winners against Gortletteragh while Ballinaglera were successful over Aughawillan. In Group 2, Sean O’Heslins were too strong for Melvin Gaels and Kiltubrid were also comfortable winners over Drumkeerin.
The following are the GAA results from over the weekend in Leitrim:
In Group 3 Carrigallen saw off the challenge of Allen Gaels, while Leitrim were too strong for Glencar Manorhamilton.
