The Leitrim GAA 1994 Huddle

There are few Leitrim people who do not remember that famous day, 21 years ago, when Declan Darcy lifted the Nestor Cup. Much has been written about this momentous journey and everyone has their own treasured memory of that summer 21 years ago.  As part of National Heritage Week, a nostalgic evening of remembrance is taking place in Ballinamore Library on Friday August 28th at 8pm.  This will be an ‘up for the match’ type event led by Seán Ó Súilleabháin where those present will discuss the lead up, the matches, the aftermath and the positive impact of Leitrim’s historic championship of 1994.  There will also be an exhibition of memorabilia, including letters, cards, telegrams of good wishes and congratulations from home and abroad, sent to the County Board Secretary, Tommy Moran and the football used in the Connacht final will also be on display.  For further information please contact Mary Conefrey on 0719645567.  Don’t miss it!
