Unfortunately due to waterlogged pitches our trip to Buccaneers RFC in Athlone was called off at very short notice on Saturday with all players and parents already on route when we got the message at 10.00am  Our apologies for the inconvenience caused to everyone and particularly to those who we were unable to get a message to.

Congratulations to our U8’s and U9’s who travelled to Castlebar Sligo RFC on Saturday 5th March last to participate in the Connacht Blitz. With great performances all round, the players enjoyed themselves and were delighted to receive their Connacht medals. Our thanks to Gerry Melly and the team in Castlebar for hosting the blitz. Training continues in Leitrim Village this Saturday 19th with our next blitz scheduled for Saturday 26th March at Cavan RFC.
