It is with great regret that Leitrim GAA hears of the death a past president of the county board and one of our greatest supporters Teresa Bohan. Teresa served as president of Coiste Chontae Liatroma from 2002 for 3 years until 2004.

Eamonn Duignan, Chairman of the Leitrim Supporters Club and friend of the Bohan family sums up Teresas dedication to the GAA:

"It is with great sadness I learn of the death of Teresa Bohan. As youngsters growing up in Mohill she came to all our matches from U 12 to senior, inÓgood weather & bad. She travelled to a lot of matches in my fathers car and in later years was my mothers companion to both club and county matches. After club matches whether you played well or not she bought you a 99 in Pauls. She could be depended upon to defend her team if they played well or not. In her long life supporting both Mohill & Leitrim she saw as many defeats as victories but was never discouraged. She was a source of inspiration to everyone who played football in both the Mohill & Leitrim Colours. May she rest in peace."
