Unfortunately a place in the semi finals of the league went a begging
as a depleted Leighlin side shipped a heavy beating
at the hands of Eire Og in Ballinaboley.
Eire Og had built up a 4-7 to 0-1 half time lead with goals from
Corey Harmon, two from Mark Corcoran and one from Mark Kelly,
as Alan Quinn scored the home sides only point.
Leighlin did slightly better in the second half but were still outscored
by 0-11 to 1-3, Chris Rooster Kearney converting a fine point along
with Ciaran Casey and Lee Conran, while Alan Quinn pinged
one in the top right corner of the net in what was a mere
consolation goal for the All Blacks.
