New – was certainly the theme for last Sundays FBD league at Advantcard Pairc Sean MacDiarmada on Sunday last. We had a new season, a new format for the FBD League, new rules, a new Mayo Management team, a new Leitrim manager and a new management team, a new Leitrim Sponsor, and Leitrim sporting their New Jerseys. Well if new was the theme beforehand, extraordinary was the word on every body’s lips afterwards as Leitrim turned in a massive performance to draw level with a vastly experienced Mayo team. To cap matters off it became a historic occasion when we had for the first time a game in a recognised competition finished on penalties. What a day to remember. This was a great start to the year for the new manager and his backroom team and indeed for the players and with performances like this we can look forward to the year ahead. Well done to all involved.

Sympathy – We extend our sincere sympathy to the Heeran Family Adoon Cloone on the death of Irene Heeran recently. The Heeran family have been steeped in GAA tradition, and have contributed handsomely to GAA activities in the parish over a long number of years.
It is with great regret that we extend our sincere sympathy to the family of the late Jim Foy Riverstown Cloone, who died recently. Jim had been an active member of Cloone GAA in his young days and filled many important role, as a player, referee, umpire, linesman and indeed any other duty that was required. Jim also used his acting skills to great effect, to raise much needed funds for Cloone GAA when he participated in many local Drama productions organised by the club. Jim was also renowned for his dancing skills which he so eloquently displayed in Doherty’s Hall, much to the envy of the many young ambitious two left-footers in the hall. Jim would have taken his dancing skills to Maguires Hall in Correneary, to faraway places like the Wonderland in Bawnboy and indeed many more. Jim was a gentleman with a great love of music, and was much loved by all who knew him. To his wife Mary and his extended family we pass on our sincere sympathy.
