Leitrim Lockdown Lowdown.

(Oldest Posts First)

During this lockdown, with nothing to argue over football wise i was thinking we could do a questionaire type poll to see what way we think about the past and future of our county and club scene.

I posted this on another page but maybe this is the best page for it

I see other counties are picking a best 15 but you can only use 1 Player from each club. I'll have a go

1. Martin McHugh (Aughnasheelin)
2. Dermot Renoylds (St.Marys)
3. John McKeown (Drumreilly)
4. Micheal McGuninness (Mohill)
5. Noel Moran (Allen Gaels)
6. Declan Darcy (Aughwillian)
7. Paddy Maguire (Manor)
8. Christy Carroll (Kiktubrid)
9. Seamus Quinn (Gortletteragh)
10. Liam Conlon (SOH)
11. Emylin Mulligan (Melvin Gaels)
12. Micheal Foley (Drumkeerin)
13. Ryan O Rourke (Fenagh)
14. Conor Beirne (Eslin)
15. Fintan McBrien (Aughvas)

It's a lot harder than I thought
No body from
Cloone
Carrigallen
Bornacoola
Glenfaren
Ballinaglera
Annaduff
Leitrim Gaels
Dromahair

Best Leitrim player I've ever seen Packy McCarty. Since then the only that comes near is Micky Martin. These boys could win games on their own.
