Leitrim captain Seán Markham accepts the shield from Connacht Council Treasurer, Anthony Flaherty.

 

The Leitrim hurlers’ historic provincial shield success on Friday evening was influenced by the captaincy of a Roscommon club footballer.

Seán Markham, who plays with Michael Glaveys in the county senior football championship, captained his adopted county to a 2-24 to 0-24 victory against Mayo at the NUI Galway Connacht GAA Air Dome.

Lining out at midfield, Markham pitched in with two points from play. A former Tooreen and Mayo hurler, Markham has been living in County Leitrim for the past number of years.

He accepted the shield from newly-elected Connacht Council Treasurer, Anthony Flaherty from Athleague Hurling Club.

Roscommon meet Sligo in this evening’s cup final to see who will be crowned inaugural Connacht Hurling League champions.
