Connacht Senior Club Championship: As Aughawillan prepare to take on Corofin this Sunday in the Semi-Final of the Connacht Club at 2pm in Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada, a new wave of anticipation has been created.
Times they are a changing! Its nine years since a club in Leitrim have reached the Semi Final of the Connacht Club, but a year that has been fraught with problems for the usual big winners can surely only mean that Aughawillan will continue to challenge the gauntlet.
As Crossmaglen were surprisingly knocked out of the Ulster Club SFC by Omagh last weekend, it has become apparent that youth, strength and determination are the essential qualities needed to win. Aughawillan are such a team, proving time and time again, that they will not lie down, they will not be put down and until the final whistle blows there is no winner.
A man who goes out and try’s his best will never regret. Aughawillan are a team who have continually given their best this year and can have no regrets. Aughawillan are a team of talented young men who have defied the odds and taken the Leitrim Senior Championship. Aughawillan are a team who have continued to strive forward, taken the Connacht Club by storm and who never pass up an opportunity once presented.
Aughawillan will once again be seen as the underdogs as they take on Corofin, now the bookies favourites to win the Club Championship, but playing at this high level,striving forward, breaking down barriers, Aughawillan is in the place they love best.
Aughawillan GAA wish to thank all the local GAA Clubs who have bestowed best wishes as they continue their campaign and we would urge every man, woman and child in the surrounding areas to turn up on Sunday to support this great team, and believe in Aughawillan, as we believe.. Achadh Mhaolain Abú!!
