Karl McDermott, Thomas McDonald & Sports Awards – Sports Roundup: Episode 192
This week we’re talking to Karl McDermott of the Leitrim Hurlers, Thomas McDonald, manager of the Sligo / Leitrim League leaders Manorhamilton Rangers as well as looking back at some of the excellent performances by Leitrim Athletes in February with our Monthly Sports Awards.
In a weather affected weekend it was mostly good news for local teams on the national stage with the footballers, hurlers and Longford Town all earning wins on the east coast while Sligo Rovers and Sligo Rugby saw their fixtures fall foul of the conditions as well as the entire adult club football fixture list in Leitrim.
In another late change Leitrim Hurlers had to travel to the National Sports Campus in Abbotstown for their clash with Lancashire, where a victory would put one foot in the Division 3B National League Final. Breifne talks to Karl McDermott after the hurlers completed their final league with a win over their British counterparts.
We’re all celebratory here in Leitrim Daily as we’re looking at our nominees for the Monthly Sportsperson of the Month Awards which feature 23 young and not so young individuals and teams who surpassed even their own expectations this month and reached super levels of performance at local, national and international level.
