Sligo v Down: Preview

Sligo v Down: Preview

As anticipation builds for today’s clash in the Lidl National Football League, all eyes turn to Eastern Harps GAA in Sligo for an enthralling Round 3 match-up between Sligo and Down, kicking off at 1 pm. This encounter promises to be a compelling spectacle as both teams aim to rebound from their previous setbacks. Down, after a narrow three-point defeat to Wexford in Newry, is eager to showcase their resilience and tactical improvements. Similarly, Sligo, looking to recover from their away loss to Clare, are set to display their determination and skill under the guidance of Manager Cormac Reape. A victory today is crucial for Sligo as they aim to position themselves advantageously before facing Roscommon in a fortnight.

Today also marks a special occasion for Sligo as they debut their new jerseys supplied by GOWA, a proud Sligo company partnering with Sligo LGFA. The jerseys, adorned with our main sponsors Abbvie and Connacht Gold, symbolize Sligo's commitment to local enterprises and the spirit of our community. We eagerly await the release of supporters' gear in the coming weeks and encourage all to support Sligo LGFA in any way possible.

A special competition also in play here today, in which every child that attends the game is in with a chance to win one of the new jerseys on display!

This game is not just a test of physical prowess but a celebration of local pride, resilience, and community spirit. As we gather in Fr Breheny Park, let's rally behind our teams and enjoy a day filled with top-tier Ladies Gaelic football.
