Leitrim Gaels and Mohill win on Leitrim championship opening night

Glencar Manorhamiliton 0-16 Leitrim Gaels 3-10 (19)

Leitrim Gaels surprised Glencar Manorhamiliton with a three-goal salvo to win this opening senior championship game.

The hosts were slower out of the blocks but led seven points to six at half-time. The game turned six minutes into the second-half.


Manor had moved three points clear when they awarded a penalty. However it wasn’t converted and within a minute the game was level.

Stephen Goldrick was brought down in the box and converted his penalty to make it a level game.

The water break only spurned the gaels on and Sean Chandler raced through the manor defence to get the village sides second goal.


Goldrick struck again with a goal six minutes later, putting Leitrim Gaels out of sight.

The referee played a remarkable eight minutes of injury time but Manor could claw it back even missing a sitter right at the end.

St Marys Kiltoghert 0-9 Mohill 1-14


This was billed as a rematch of the league decider but this was far more convincing by Mohill.

Mohill led by five points at half-time 1-9 to seven points. Ronan Gordon’s goal on 15 minutes sucking the life from St. Mary’s.

Mary’s did fight back in the second half, but Keith Beirne added two frees and a point from play as Mohill won out 1-14 to nine points.
