The annual Leitrim GAA Supporters draw took place in Cox??s Steak House, Dromod last night 2nd April 2005. A packed house witnessed the drawing of the fifteen winning tickets under the supervision of Garda Joe Egan.
This draw was again a huge success as you the supporters dug deep to support Leitrim GAA. The hard working committee were justifiably proud of their efforts as the draw went according to plan and once again exceeded the taking of the previous year??s draw.
County board Chairman Gerry McGovern addressed the gathering following the draw and was very high in his praise of all who made the draw the big success in reaching the ??70,000 euro target. All the prizes were sponsored by many of Leitrim??s valued supporters who once again were only too delighted to come forward without hesitation to give the ticket holders 15 good prizes.
Thanking the Cox family for their continued support the chairman paid tribute to Eugene and T.P. Cox who put their premises both upstairs and downstairs at the disposal of the committee and supporters last night.
Supporters Club Secretary Marie Lee was mentioned by the chairman for all her outstanding work as Secretary leading by example with a big personal ticket sales tally.
