Sligo Leitrim & District League
The Sligo Leitrim & District League (DSL) is an amateur football league in County Sligo and County Leitrim, Ireland. It was founded in 1923 and currently has over 60 affiliated clubs. The league runs competitions for men, women, boys, and girls of all ages.
The DSL was founded in 1923 by a group of football enthusiasts in Sligo. The first season of the league consisted of just four teams, but it has since grown to become one of the largest amateur football leagues in Ireland.
The DSL has played a major role in the development of football in County Sligo and County Leitrim. Many of the players who have gone on to represent Ireland at international level have played their underage football in the league.
The DSL runs competitions for men, women, boys, and girls of all ages. The men's senior division is the top tier of competition in the league. The winners of the senior division are promoted to the Connacht Senior League, while the bottom two teams are relegated to the DSL First Division.
The women's senior division is also a popular competition. The winners of the women's senior division are promoted to the Connacht Women's League, while the bottom two teams are relegated to the DSL First Division.
The DSL also runs a number of cup competitions, including the Connacht Cup, the FAI Intermediate Cup, and the FAI Junior Cup.
