Episode 122: Sports Preview
This week we’re joined by Leitrim GAA PRO Declan Bohan. We’ll also be chatting to Sean Gallagher of Manorhamilton Rangers and Cillian McGloin who’s looking to defend his county U20 title with Melvin Gaels.
Declan Bohan joins Breifne Earley to look back at the successes of the past year, both on and off the playing pitches for the organisation in Leitrim. Promotion from Division 4, Lory Meagher Hurling Championship success and the opening of the new Centre of Excellence facility in Annaduff were just some of the highlights for the sport in the county this year.
They also chat about the future for Leitrim GAA with major change on the cards for the makeup of the county committee at the annual convention next month.
Sean Gallagher, Asst Manager of Manorhamilton Rangers, joins Breifne to chat about their season so far, with an unbeaten record in the league but disappointment in the FAI Junior Cup. The club are excited about their developing squad as their youth teams are starting to generate more players for their senior side as they chase their first ever Sligo / Leitrim Superleague title.
Finally Cillian McGloin talks about his mindset as he looks forward to defending the U20 county championship title that his Melvin Gaels side secured last year. The novelty of being the defending captain of an underage title comes up along with the pressures put on players between schools, colleges, club and county at this time of year.
