[b]Vhi Cul Camps Application Forms[/b]
Due to a delay in printing, parents and children should note that application forms for this years camp’s will be distributed in the Schools the week after the Easter break. Thankfully this years forms are Family forms, therefore one form will be sufficient for each household and the dates and venues for all Leitrim Vhi Cul camps will be listed on the forms, this I am sure will be welcomed by all parents.

This years camps were launched after the Leitrim v Carlow game in Cloone on Sunday last. A special word of thanks to the Senior players who took time out to assist with the launch and to Kieran Campbell from Bornacoola who modelled this years Jersey.
