This year we celebrate 25 years of the Leitrim Supporters Club and over the 25 years the Leitrim supporters have proved themselves to be the most loyal, committed and generous of any supporters in the country:-
Eamon Duignan, Chairman of the Dublin Branch of the Leitrim Supporters Club tells us "In the very first supporters club draw in 1986 we had 2,000 members and we raised €100,000. Tickets were £100 pound each with monthly prizes of cars for 12 monthly draws. Last year we had 2,200 members in our club. This year we are hoping to get 2,500 who will all wear the special 25th anniversary Scórf" Eamon also goes on to reveal the true extent of our supporters generosity over the last 10 years:-
* Total contributed by supporters over the last 10 years € 2,000,000
* € 120,000 on average per year over the last ten years
* Supporters donated € 900,000 towards new stand in Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada
Our supporters have not only contributed to the day to day financing of the board but also to the infrastructure in the county which will benefit the GAA and the county for many years to come. So being part of the Leitrim Supporters Club really does make a difference.
