Leitrim GAA is saddened to hear of the death of the late Gerry Nangle, Castleknock, Dublin and formerly of Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim, who passed to his eternal reward on Thursday last April 25th.

Gerry was a retired successful Dublin publican who never lost touch with his Leitrim roots. He was a lifelong member of the Dublin Branch of the Leitrim GAA Supporters Club and was an everpresent at the gathering of Leitrim Supporters for the Dublin launch of the fundraising event in January of each year. He loved meeting people at these gatherings and was a familiar friendly face to all comers with a word for everyone. He followed the fortunes of the Leitrim Football team all over the country and was most thrilled with the progress shown by the team in this year’s Allianz League promotion run. Gerry was a true Green and Gold Supporter and even if the fortunes of the teams were dipping, as has been experienced on many other occasions, he never had anything but a word of encouragement for their efforts and would applaud the energy of the lads equally in victory and more importantly in defeat, refusing to criticise the team in any eventuality.

We extend our sympathies to his wife Kathleen, sons Gerard and Finbarr, daughters Caitriona and Paula. Gerry will be sadly missed by his loving wife, sons, daughters, daughter-in-law Lesley, grandchildren Paul and Orla, brothers Shane, Mel, Frank and Brian, sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.

May his gentle soul rest in peace.

Funeral Arrangements – Reposing at Cunningham’s Funeral Home, Church Avenue, Blanchardstown on Sunday afternoon from 4.00 O’Clock with removal to The Church of St. Thomas the Apostle, Laurel Lodge, Castleknock arriving for Mass at 6.00 O’Clock. Removal on Monday morning to St. Patrick’s Church, Drumshambo, Co. Leitrim arriving for Requiem Mass at 12.00 noon followed by burial in The New Cemetery, Drumshambo. Family flowers only, please. Donations, if desired, to The Irish Cancer Society.



The distance of the cycle is approximately 160km, and it will take 40 staff members from under the Michael Cusack statue in Croke Park all the way to Avantcard Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada in County Leitrim. Along the way they will be stopping for the ‘tae’ in Enfield in County Meath and Bunbrosna in County Westmeath. So please lend your support if you pass them on their cross-country spin!

This is their third charity cycle with ‘Tour de Thurles’ in 2017 and ‘Rollin2Nowlan’ in 2018. Those two events combined raised a total of €42,500 – which is phenomenal!

The main aim of the game this year is to raise funds and awareness for the five official GAA charities for 2019: Western Alzheimers, Down Syndrome Ireland, Marie Keating Foundation, Enable Ireland, and Focus Ireland.

The cyclists are expected to arrive at Avantcard Páirc Seán at 5pm and all are invited to welcome them to Carrick.

On last Saturday night at the Leitrim Supporters Club Draw, Cox’s Steakhouse, Dromod unveiled their sponsorship of this year’s Leitrim Under 20 Team, which will soon be in action in this year’s competitions. The Leitrim lads will compete in the Philly McGuinness Memorial Cup and later in the Connacht Under 20 Championship. We are delighted to be associated with the business and their sponsorship of the Leitrim GAA is much appreciated. Cox’s Steakhouse is also the main sponsor of the annual Leitrim GAA Supporters Club Draw. We thank Adrian Cox, Eugene Cox and all associated with the Dromod based hospitality business and look forward to a successful partnership on and off the field in the season ahead.
