Gallogly Catering ACL Division 4: Congratulation to Aughawillan who played St. Osnats, Manorhamillton on Saturday evening in Aughawillan. It was a dry and cold evening for the night before the the Irish calender summer months to begin but for the Aughawillan spectators in attendance it was an excellent evening to be out in the fresh air to watch a game.At half time Aughawillan led 2-05 to 0-0. While the full time score on Leitrim fixtures was Aughawillan 3-13 to St. Osnats 0-09!!
