The Leitrim Wall – The Leitrim wall is a new initiative being organised by Leitrim County Board to complete the final phase of the Centre of excellence at Annaduff. The concept of the initiative is that patrons would buy a brick, stone or tile on which they can have their own personal inscription, and will be mounted on a newly constructed wall at the entrance to the new Centre.

This initiative gives Leitrim GAA supporters an opportunity to have a loved one remembered, at the Gaa centre and also contribute to the future development of Gaelic Games in the county. Experience of this initiative in other places is that families use the stones or bricks to remember family members who have had an active involvement in the GAA whither as players or administrators. They are commonly used as gifts to families and quite an amount of interest is being shown from exiles who have been away for a number of years and want their family name embedded in the fabric of Leitrim and in the GAA in particular. This final project will fully complete the New Centre to the highest standards, and provide a top quality training Campus which will include the most modern equipment and training facilities for the future generations of Leitrim footballers.

People who want to purchase a brick stone or tile can contact any club member. By buying a brick you are ensuring that your family name will be remembered in the folklore of Leitrim GAA and you are contributing to the future development of Gaelic games in the County.
