As the players of NY Leitrim and Tyrone in contesting for the 2011 New York senior football championship left the field at Gaelic Park the Bronx yesterday afternoon, the large crowd gave the teams a standing ovation as they had just witnessed one of the greatest senior football finals in the city in years.

A fantastic game of football saw Leitrim edge out a very gallant Tyrone in the dying minutes of OT with Kerry native, Dan Doona sending over a brace of points to see the champions retain their title by [17] 0-17 to [15] 1-12.

But NY Tyrone had come oh so close to toppling the champions as they were leading by a point with virtually seconds left in normal time only to see Leitrim steal in for a late equalizer.

Here to give a full report on the final is NY GAA Secretary, Liam Bermingham, and, we also here from delighted Leitrim selector, Frankie Dwyer and NY GAA Chairman, Larry McCarthy on a thrilling final.
