Local bookies in Galway are poised for a €50,000 payout if club side Leitrim/Kilnadeema make it through to the knockout stages of the county senior hurling championship.

If Clarinbridge, All-Ireland club finalists in 2001, beat Carnmore this weekend then it will be enough to see Leitrim/Kilnadeema through and leave the club riding high in the financial stakes.
