Carrick were put into the 15 a side minor league even though they requested to be put into either the 11 or 13 not sure which one, they don't have the players and cannot pull them out of the sky so they simply cant field at 15 a side, its a case of the county board doing there own thing without discussing it with the club.
The senior fielded a weak team on Sunday morning, there was a large number of regular players unavailable, it is worrying but on the flipside there were players who got to play senior and got there chance to prove themselves, it was a bad result on the day but it gave some players good experience and hopefully they will learn from it for the future.

Also Paul Brennan was missing for Melvin Gaels he was playing with connacht D,haire are always flying it this time of year anyway. Division 2 will be close this year with Drumkeerin- Augnasheelin and fenagh and glenfarne both drawing. 1 point win for allen gales over B,glera while cloone bet carigallen by 2 points.

How are Carrick not able to get a 15 aside minor team together? Bigger pick then anyone else.

That's right and how do the knowalls in the observer always get it wrong

It's the tip of the iceberg about Leitrim GAA clubs . we don't have the numbers to keep all these clubs going so they will have to join up with each other

Ask Shannon geals and Leitrim geals why Marys are short players

SeanMcDiarmada, i was chatting with a very good Carrick clubman yesterday and he summed up the problems in Carrick very easily. He said that the older generation of players are retired or near the end of good careers, the most of the next generation are in foreign fields and the young generation just dont seem to care. Im only saying what is being said. But in fairness if any club lost players like Conor Daly, David Tiernan, Barry Butler, James McGrail, Brian O'Donnell and a few others that i cant remember their names they would struggle. Yes Mohill had a big win over Carrick but sterner tests lie ahead. Only time will tell if Mohill have what it takes to replace Michael & John McGuinness, Shane Canning and Its not certain if Ronan Gallagher will be around for long. Gortleteragh running Manor to a point. Anyone at it ? Were Manor poor or are Gortletteragh good. And they had no Cathal mcCrann

I said there was 2 games to watch silage an the gortletteragh game was one

If them lads can hold manor to a point without mc crann what will they do with him?

There is a huge problem comeing down the tracks to Leitrim football and it has foreign field written all over it

Another thing to remember is that a team isn't a team for life maybe a player might get 6 - 8 years senior but that's it

Our neighbours found this out last year an do the last couple of years when they didn't look after their underage and minor set up and looked after "the boys" as we will call them

It hit the wall sprinting when "the boys" ended up in relegation finals last year first and second team

Prepare to see a change this year if mohill don't fall apart as usual themselves and gortletteragh could dominate Leitrim football for the coming decade

Its far too early to be making bold statements like that 94. Of course Gortlettragh were going to put up a spirited display at home against the best senior team in Leitrim, in their first league game back in Division 1. I would have expected nothing else but they still lost! and you can talk all you like about them missing the mighty Mc Crann but count how many Manor were missing so cant go on that match. Jurys still out on them being real challengers this year..
