The Leitrim GAA Supporters’ Club will host a special ‘Up for the Roscommon Match’ event in the Herbert Park Hotel, Ballsbridge, on Thursday, May 24th at 8pm, in anticipation of the Connacht semi-final clash.

The event will feature a panel discussion hosted by former Leitrim player Colin Regan and some very special guests. Ballinamore Sean O’Heslin’s 1994 Connacht winning forward, Liam ‘Willie’ Conlon and St. Mary’s former great, Dermot Reynolds, will recall tales from their battles with Roscommon on the field of play. Conlon played a vital part in the famous victory over the Rossies in the ’94 quarter-final, while Reynolds scored the vital goal against his near neighbours when Leitrim recorded a famous victory in the 2000 semi-final in The Hyde.

To ensure balance and some good banter on the night, a former Roscommon player (TBC) will also join the panel, with some other special guests also contributing on the night.

The night will also see the Irish launch by Eamonn Duignan of an exciting fundraising drive to raise funds to finish Leitrim’s Centre of Excellence in Annaduff. The ambitious plans will finish the centre to the highest standards, ensuring that Leitrim’s facilities are on par with any other county in Ireland. A special feature – The Leitrim Wall – has been incorporated into the design allowing Leitrim people everywhere the opportunity to record a personal message on a commemorative brick or tile that will forever feature prominently in the Centre of Excellence for everyone to see when visiting the facility.

There are four price options to suit everyone’s budget and need. A launch of The Leitrim Wall was well received in New York and the Supporters Club hope that Leitrim’s loyal supporters will once more back this innovative opportunity to help build Leitrim’s GAA future brick by brick. For more information about the Leitrim Wall visit www.leitrimgaa.ie and stay tuned to the Leitrim GAA social media accounts.

All are welcome to this free event in The Herbert Park Hotel. Light refreshments from 7.30pm with an 8pm sharp throw-in. The night will conclude at 9.30pm. Please bring along any Leitrim people you know.
