Thirty teams made their way to St Mary’s GAA centre in Leixlip on Wednesday night in what was a fantastic night for Leitrim GAA and its supporters. We had everything on the night from 10 entertaining rounds, to a very large raffle with notable spot prizes and before the night was over we even had a full rendition of Lovely Leitrim by Michael Cryan !

The Leitrim Supporters committee led by Eamonn Duignan were approached to see if they would host one of the qualifier rounds in the run up to the final on Dec 4th. The committee accepted the task and duly delivered in style in what has been by far the largest qualifier to date. All supporters in the Dublin and Kildare area were invited to attend and they duly obliged. Teams even made their way from Athlone and Leitrim to the very suitable function room in Leixlip organised by Tony Gallogly. Many of the senior team players and all members of the Leitrim management team were present and enjoyed the social occasion.

The quiz itself hosted by John Morrison was as entertaining as ever with 10 close rounds which went to the wire with all thirty teams acquitting themselves admirably. Unfortunately only 4 teams can go through to the finals and with just 1 point separating each team we look forward to seeing the following in Coxs Steakhouse next Friday night: Team Cloone (McNamee), Brain Wash, The Straffan Stragglers and 3 Provinces.

Many thanks from Leitrim GAA to the competing teams, to the spot prize donors, to Eamonn Duignan & Michael Feeney & the Leitrim Supporters Committee, to Tony Gallogly and all at St Marys GAA Club including the staff for the use of their facilities.

Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Criostóir Ó Cuana will perform the official launch of 3 very important documents on Wednesday December 2nd.  The documents in question are the Underage Review, the Leitrim Strategic Plan for 2009 to 2015 and a book entitled "Scéal CLG Liatroma 1984 — 2009".

A considerable amount of work has been under taken in consultation with Clubs in the Underage Review and the Strategic Plan documents.  Both are very important documents and will form a vital roadmap for the clubs and the county board in the years ahead.

The Underage Review committee, set up by County Board Chairman Gerry McGovern to undertake a thorough review of underage structures in the county, has carried out a microscopic review of all football structures and activities taking place in County Leitrim at school, club and county levels and have compiled a comprehensive report, complete with recommendations for Convention 2009. 

The second document comes from the recent county forum held to generate the Leitrim Strategic Plan for 2009 to 2015 which is a vital tool for the County Board in obtaining the in-put of all clubs in the county on the Leitrim County Strategic Plan for 2009 to 2015.  This consultation process is coming to a close and the final blueprint document will be launched on the night.

In GAA Centenary Year, 1984, Coiste Chontae Liatroma published "Scéal Liatroma," edited by Seán Ó Súilleabháin, which dealt with the story of the GAA in the county from the founding of the first club in Killinumerry in 1886.  With the GAA celebrating its 125th Anniversary this year, it is appropriate that the County Board will again produce a souvenir book. This will be "Scéal CLG Liatroma 1984 — 2009" and will give an overview of county activity during those 25 years and will cover football, hurling, handball, Ladies GAA, Coiste na n-Óg, Coaching, the development of the Boards IT, Féile Peil na n-Óg, infrastructural development — every aspect of the work of the GAA in Leitrim.

In addition to the two documents the president will launch this book which is produced by Tommy Moran on behalf of Leitrim GAA.
