Leitrim Hurling 2019

(Oldest Posts First)

Well done to all associated with Leitrim Hurling on a great win yesterday and getting to croke park for second time in 3 years. Delighted for the small band of hurling people who have kept hurling alive in Leitrim over the years with little support. Hope they can bring the cup home in 2 weeks.

I'd be the first to admit that I know very little about the hurling scene in Leitrim! Martin Cunniffe is great for keeping hurling going. Good luck to all involved

Credit to those few who have kept the ancient game alive in Leitrim, from Gortletteragh down to Manorhamilton, the reward is to be seen today.
I maintain hurling should be on the national school curriculum in every school in Ireland

Well done to everyone involved with the hurlers. And to all the lads who kept hurling alive in Leitrim over the years with little support from anyone it was great to see ye get your day in the sun, it's a great pity Paddy Phelan wasn't around to see it but I'm sure he was looking down smiling, he done so much for hurling in Leitrim. Enjoy the celebrations lads richly deserved.

Great result for Leitrim.. Just wondering is it true your captain is a Galway man, he fairly hogged the limelight on Saturday.

Replying To Belclare:  "Great result for Leitrim.. Just wondering is it true your captain is a Galway man, he fairly hogged the limelight on Saturday."
He's a Tipp man originally but his club is down as Abbeyknockmoy in the programme. Michael Colemans club.

Great day out and delighted for the likes of Clement Cunniffe. James Clancy etc who have hurled for the county for so long.

Also interesting to hear Molloy going on about I think a 36 man panel. It doesn't sound like they have too many players who throw their toys out of the pram and walk off the panel.
