Fear Ban you'll find you skipped L. L is for Liam Conlon, during the good days he always got into great goal scoring positions in big games, mind you he missed most of them. When he stopped playing for the county, the goal chances dried up also. Memories!!!

Ah Johnnos, surely you could have given a different description for Kinlough. What about the Gaels 5 or 6 Senior champ's? What about the renowned competitive spirit of the almost Donegal men?
(They'll prob win the intermediate next year alright. You could be right with that one).

When it gets to S I'm gonna post Sorry for putting Drumkeerin in out of order and mucking it up - never realised we were doing it alphabetically. Not a very Leitrim approach I would have thought! :-))

N is for None. The amount of All-Ireland Senior Football Championships we have won.
N is also for Nine aside. The best chance Annaduff have of winning anything!

O is for Ollie Honeyman, perennial old style corner back. 100% committment, brilliant in wet conditions, not good on fast ground against nippy corner forwards. His bald head will always be an abiding memory for me.

P is for the Power, P. Puddy Mc Donald and P. Paddy Maguire, the last line of the Glencar Manor defence, cant touch this.

Well here it goes anyway.

Q is for questioning refereeing decisions.

Some of the all time classics are often roared from stands and "banks" about the county such as:
there was two of them at it
throw ball
he was in the shquare(even though it is a rectangle)
off the ground
keep up with the play
are you f**king blind
ah ref ya b****x ya
what sort of a b****x is that fella out there

and many many more

To be honest I can feel the start of a new thread coming on "Insults thrown at refs"

"s" is also for "s"pike91 who doesn't like me "s"latin (sic) Clubs. "s" is for "S"orry spike!!

S is for Sean O'Heslins. Leitrim's most successful Club.

Off the field they have the best Club Grounds and although its been awhile since they won a Senior Title (and maybe a while longer) they still are one of our best Clubs.

Surely Q has to be for the mighty Quinn? A name synonymous with Leitrim football. A name that has brought us two All Stars & the famous grass eating rossies story. http://www.leitrimobserver.ie/news/Jerome-the-grass-and-the.4614439.jp

P should be for Packy McGarty. Our greatest ever player according to those who were around to see him when he was playing.

T is for Tom Gannon, Captain of our first Connacht winning team in 1927.

''U'' is for underage. a structure leitrim need to sort out fast, although developments with the minor team last year show signs of improvement.

V is for Vera Donnellans Field, where in 1997 the local community banded together to produce Leitrim Gaels first training session. The County Board then gave its blessing for this proud community of Leitrim Village to form a club and today, they still continue to flourish despite being sandwiched between Allen Gaels, Kiltubrid and St. Marys.

W is for Ward, Jason first man in the country that played for the county his parents were from. The St Brigids man was a great help to the Leitrim cause from 1994 for about 7 years. Any more sons of Leitrim men out there???

X is for the newly formed x case

Founded by gaa members and players across the county that want rid of the dictators and politicians that are ruining our native sport and deny players games an jerseys just to give the relatives that are home on holidays a run and make themselves look good

A must definitely stand for agony aunt, as this is what the hoganstand appears to have turned into. People preach about reverting to a more 'manly game'. Here might be the best place to start. Read once again what r stands for, RESPECT all in the gaa family regardless of their profession or capacity outside the club gates.

R respect is what?

Respect for fellow players that give time and energy on and off the field keeping fit looking forward to games and getting games

Respect for selling tickets spreading the word about socail fundraising events selling tickets

Respect for fellow players when a ball is only passed to them when the passer sees them in a worse position than he is

Respect for yourself is a must if you don't have that then you won't have it for anybody else

But then again this time 1 month we will be all back training again and playing challenges looking forward to early league and shield games

Good luck next year I hear there are many places up for grabs or to be filled on your team
