Leitrim’s St. Francis Ladies will compete in the intermediate ladies competition as part of the Lidl Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé 2018, which takes place 16-18 February in West Kerry. The power and appeal of Páidi Ó Sé, one of Gaelic Football’s most favourite sons, is truly evident as over 1,200 players comprising of teams from South Korea, Germany, the UK and 12 counties from the four provinces of Ireland will compete in the famed Gaelic football festival.

St. Francis Ladies will be up against defending 2017 Comórtas champions Naomh Abán of Cork, Corcha Dhuibhne of West Kerry, Burrishoole Ladies of Mayo, also previous Comórtas winners, Wicklow’s Blessington Ladies and Cavan’s Gowna Ladies.

The football festival, which has attracted over 15,000 club players since it began in 1989, is a big boost for tourism in the area and continues to attract huge interest.
