Now that the dust has settled on our magnificent 2019 Allianz League campaign, we must acknowledge a number of items. Firstly we thank our players and management for the efforts they have made on our behalf all spring in bringing a pep to the step of all associated with Leitrim GAA. Marooned in Division 4 since relegation in the Spring of 2008, it seemed at times that the interminable wait to advance up the league would painfully continue forever. However, the signs of something positive that could germinate sooner rather than later occurred during last Summer’s championship season with heartening displays, a never say die attitude and memorable days in Gaelic Park, and versus Louth and Monaghan in the Qualifiers.

This year’s campaign has brought joy and honour to our county. A brilliant league campaign that included many late but nonetheless deserved victories has concluded with the much-coveted prize of promotion to Division 3 for 2020 and a chance to test our developing young team against stronger opposition. While the result of the league final didn’t go our way, the performance of our players was magnificent on Saturday last. They gave it their all and left everything on the hallowed ground of Croke Park in pursuit of victory and for that nobody could possibly ask for more. We heartily congratulate Derry who were deserving victors on the day. We salute the efforts of Terry Hyland and his management team for getting the players to this stage in their first year at the helm as we look forward to the Connacht Championship next month in hope, a chance for continued development and further progress.

We wish to thank all media outlets, online, local and national print, local and national radio and TV, whose coverage of this journey was unparallelled in our recent history and gave a great lift to the efforts of all involved. Many thanks for your coverage which is greatly appreciated by all and painted our county and Leitrim GAA in a most positive light.

Last, and by certainly no means least we must acknowledge the magnificent support for the lads on Saturday last. Our support base has been steadily growing all season but Saturday last exceeded all expectations. The colour and noise that our supporters brought to HQ was the talk of the weekend and while it’s not that often Leitrim teams get the opportunity to play in a national final in Croke Park, our supporters were magnificent and if the players left their all on the field of play, they will also be the first to acknowledge that they were lifted by the push they received from the stands. It’s not easy to fill Croke Park with supporters cheers but our supporters more than passed that test and were truly magnificent. Special word towards the hundreds who travelled overseas to be there also. Hats off to all involved from players, management, officials and supporters! A magnificent weekend and all that was missing at the end of it was the League trophy!

The work has commenced on the first stage of the Leitrim Wall at the Centre of Excellence in Annaduff and work has been ongoing over the past eight days. At the very outset, Martin Baxter of Brackley Landscaping took charge of the contract and over the past number of days things have begun to move in a very positive direction with the foundation laying and associated groundworks. We are delighted to have advanced the project to this stage and in thanking the many who have contributed to this fundraising effort since it was launched in New York last May and closer to home over the Summer months, we continue to appeal to all who may have an interest in getting involved in this initiative that now is the time!!

One Connacht title for Leitrim in this year’s Connacht Scór Sinsir Finals last Sunday in Balla. Aughnasheelin took home the only title in the Ballad Group

The first Leitrim performance to take to the stage was St Marys in the figure dance. The ladies gave a fabulous performance but St Dominic’s in Roscommon danced through to the All-Ireland.

In Solo Singing Michael Burke of Ballinderreen, Galway won the Connacht title seeing off Leitrim’s Sinead Egan of Aughnasheelin.

Achill of Mayo took the Instrumental Music in a very talented and diverse music competition, winning over Leitrim’s 5 St Mary’s ladies team who received great rapture from the audience but unfortunately not the judges choice and Achill retained the win for Mayo for a second year.

Recitation was a very entertaining competition and Mick Rock of Elphin, Roscommon, was declared the winner. Credit to St Mary’s Kathy Butler and her witty piece representing Leitrim so well.

Leiriu winner was Elphin of Roscommon, Leitrim had no entry in this competition.

Aughnasheelin made a welcome comeback in Set Dance. Despite a steady solid performance it went once again to Aughamore of Mayo.

The All-Ireland Finals will be held in The Royal Theatre, Traveller’s Friend hotel, Castlebar, Co Mayo on Saturday, April 13th at 3pm. Please note it is a ticket only event, tickets are priced at €20 (adult) €10 (u16). Please note tickets are non-refundable once any order is placed. They can be ordered through your club officer or county board officials. All orders must be placed by MARCH 27TH.

Wishing Aughnasheelin and all of the Connacht winners the best of luck.
