Sligo finished fourth in Division 3 this year, securing four wins, one draw, and suffering two losses. On the other hand, Leitrim was promoted from Division 4 after winning five and losing two games. They narrowly missed out on the title after a defeat to Laois in the final.

Last Year’s Performance

Sligo had a decent run last year, beating London and New York to reach the Connacht final, where they fell short against Galway. In the All-Ireland ’round robin,’ they faced tough opponents, losing to Roscommon and Dublin and drawing with Kildare. Leitrim, on the other hand, had a challenging year, losing to New York in the Connacht quarter-final and facing defeats against Antrim, Fermanagh, and Wexford in the Tailteann Cup.

Road to the Semi-Final

The Leitrim-Sligo winners will earn the chance to face Galway or London in the Connacht semi-final on the weekend of April 20/21.
