Leitrim beat Antrim to reach Tailteann Cup quarter-finals

Leitrim senior men’s footballers enjoyed a 2-14 to 1-12 victory over Antrim in Saturday’s Tailteann Cup first round game in Carrick-on-Shannon.


Andy Moran’s side produced their most impressive 35 minutes of football so far this season in the opening half to establish a 1-9 to 0-4 interval lead.

They moved further in front at one stage in the second-half but Antrim produced a fightback in the closing quarter to make it a slightly nervy finish for the home team.

However, Leitrim held on to win by five points and they go into Monday morning’s quarter-final draw.
