It was with deep sadness that Coiste Chontae Liatroma CLG have learned of the passing of George OToole after a short illness in Sligo Hospital.

He represented Leitrim at Connacht level for 20 years and he was also a former Cathaoirleach of Comhairle Connacht from 1988-1990.

Other notable posts include that of being a former Trustee of Cumann Lúthchleas Gael and Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada.

At Club level he captained St. Marys to their first ever Senior championship in 1958 while serving as the clubs chairman at the same time. He played for 16 years with St. Marys.

He was closely associated with Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada as he was a member of the committee that purchased the grounds in 1964 and was chairman of the committee for 34 years until his retirement in 1995.

Pre-deceased by his wife Alma in 1995, he had worked locally inÓgilmartins Cash and Carry from 1943 where he became a Manager and director of the company until his retirement in 1991.

We offer our sincere sympathy to his family and wide circle of friends.
