Launch of Leitrim Supporters Club Croke Park 30th Jan 2014 

What was probably the largest ever turnout for the annual launch of the Leitrim Supporters Club took place last night in Croke Park. This years Leitrim Person of the Year – the effervescent Eleanor Shanley, ably accompanied by John McCartin – formerly launched our annual fund-raising campaign and while some guy called Gareth Brooks might be appearing at the same venue in July, there is no way Eleanors rendition of “Hard Times- Sad Times Will Come Again No More” will ever be bettered. Our county might be small in numbers but the sense of pride that those of us lucky enough to be in attendance last night in Croke Park experienced is something other more populous counties can only look on with envy. We hope you can be in Páirc Seán next Sunday when we begin our Allianz Football League campaign against Antrim but if not you can follow the match on our Twitter platform. And of course, dont forget to get your Leitrim Supporters Ticket – available through your club. A special word of thanks to all who organised the event – especially Michael Feeney, Colin Regan, Fergal Magill, the Leitrim players and management who made the journey and of course to Declan Darcy, our inspirational 1994 Connacht Champion winning captain who along with our current team captain Emlyn Mulligan spoke of their aspirations and ambitions for Leitrim in the times to come. Liatroim Abú.  Some photographs from the event are available here

PS You can catch Eleanor Shanley in concert tonight in The Glens Centre Manorhamilton
