Leitrim GAA Golf Classic

As we approach Championship time Leitrim GAA will be hosting a Golf Classic at Carrick on Shannon Golf Club on the 17th May,the eve of our encounter with Roscommon in the Connacht Championship. We finished in fourth place in the Allianz Football League, lost out to Tyrone in the Hurling final, reached the u21 Connacht football Championship final for the first time since 1998, won the minor Connacht football League final and retained the FBD title in January. Not a bad start to the year you might add. However, to compete at this level, requires extensive training schedules, much travel, the provision of medical care and many other hidden costs .We are also advancing our Centre of Excellence in Annaduff and will hope to complete the project this summer.

The committee will be offering prizes to the value of €1000 with complimentary tickets to the Leitrim v RoscommonÓgame on the following day to all participants. Gallogly Catering will be sponsoring a meal to all players and we are indebted to Niall for this generous gesture. We would welcome sponsorship from all supporters who might wish to sponsor a Tee Box if not able to enter a team. Entry fee is €200 for a team of four and a great day’s fun is guaranteed with the opportunity to meet many players from the past with a number of celebrity individuals who have already indicated that they will be present. For Tee times contact Joe Lowe Manager Carrick on Shannon Golf Club on 071 9667015 or [email protected].

Contact any member of the committee for further information. Organising Committee, Barry Donnellan, Josie Murray, Oliver Curran, Gerry Hickey, Seán Boylan, Diarmuid Sweeney and Joe Flynn.
