In my opinion there are not a great team but as t he standard of senior football in leitrim is so depressingly low maybe they are in the top 6. Manor will be back next year and as formidable as ever. Marys were very striong and solid this year. I saw them first hand a few times and feel they are worthy County Champions. Mohill have a good young side with potential so lets see where they go. So after Manor, Marys and Mohill maybe they are the 4th best. Plus it must be pointed out that its 8 years since a Leitrim club team (Kiltubrid) won a game in the Connaucht Club which after great teams like Manors great 4-in-a-row team not even able to come within an arses roar of bucking that trend something needs to be done or in 10years time will Leitrim be like Kilkenny in the football?
Honestly its frightening how low the standard has got. Players will tell you themselves. Look at 02-09 when we had Mohill, Kiltubrid, Marys, Manor, Bornacoola all with really strong teams feeding the core of the county team. There are obviously great players not in those clubs who were immense also for county but it seems now we are relying on maybeMarys Manor Mohill and slim pickingd from everywhere else.
It is time to forget barney and george they are the past and best forgotten,it is time to look forward an get behind our new manager.And hopefully he will reunite all the players, end get back the 4 players that were so wrongly dropped.But slowly the truth is coming out about what actually did happen last year.Our new man is holding trials in the next few weeks to get his panel of players for the year,he has been at a lot of games watching players not like the last 2.So best wishes to sean and all the players for a good new year and hopefully permotion out of division 4 our main ambition.
The previous management looked like a pair of fella's that were over a Junior C team and not an Inter County team. I know Leirtrim are not world beaters but surely ye could have had better then them. The interviews etc were cringe stuff. Past is the past though.
I agree on the second team point, the junior team needs to be resurrected and filled wit this years overage county minors, u21s and a few more that might be good enough, see how they get on and if they dont what about it, thought the idea was to give fringe county players a chance
