Galway overcome Leitrim in a game heavily involving the weather


Galway 3-06

Leitrim 0-08


Galway set up an FBD League final against Roscommon after a seven point win over Leitrim in a miserable Clonbur.

Goals including brace from Dessie Conneely and a one from Robert Finnerty set Galway on their way.

Leitrim played with a gale force wind in the first half and were trailing by 3-3 to seven points.

Leitrim scored seven points in a row in a seven minute first half spell but failed to score in the final fifteen minutes of the half.

As the Weather conditions worsened the second half only produced three points for Galway and one point for Leitrim.

Seamus Gallagher Reported for Shannonside Northern Sound.

Leitrim selector John O’Mahoney told Seamus Gallagher Leitrim showed great effort throughout  and they can build on it for the game against Antrim in two weeks.
