He has been here before and is a strong on the ball player. Now playing his football in Dublin with St. Bridget’s, he is a former Melvin Gaels player.
James Clancy is another opportunist forward, with Cian Reynolds togging out for Leitrim New York last year. Another player who will make an old acquaintance is Sean McQueeney, who lined out for Astoria Gaels with Sean Kelly for two seasons. The chatting will be done after 5 p.m.!
Thomas Beirne is a very good midfielder while Wayne McKeon is their top defender for a number of seasons. One of the co-managers is Barney Breen, who also has New York in the history as he played for Frank Brady in 1993 and ‘94 on winning championship sides. He was also part of the Leitrim Connaught Championship side of ‘94.
It promises to be a fun filled day from a spectator standpoint as Leitrim normally brings a great crowd to the Mecca. They have been in the Connaught Championship since the beginning and have 13 titles in all grades while New York awaits its first victory.
The time is now. History has a habit of happening in the unlikeliest of places!
