Leitrim defeat Lancashire in Lory Meagher Cup

Leitrim’s hurlers produced an assured performance to defeat Lancashire by 15 points in Round Four of the Lory Meagher Cup.

Olcan Conway’s side scored a goal and ten points in each half at Parnells GAA Club in Coolock to propel themselves to victory.

Brendan Delaney scored Leitrim’s first half goal while Kevin Clerkin, Joe Murray, James McNabola and Gavin O’Hagan helped themselves to early points.

Lancashire slightly came into the game early in the second half but Leitrim showed their class and experience as a Gavin O’Hagan goal from a penalty and a free from the Cluainin Iomaint clubman and a free from Karl McDermott secured the two points on offer.

Next up for Leitrim is a Round Five meeting with Louth. Which ever county wins that match will qualify for the 2022 Lory Meagher Cup final at Croke Park on the weekend of 21st/22nd May.
