Vhi GAA Cul Camps 2008
Great feed back from our first six camps of 2008, Manorhamilton, Aughawillan, Ck-on-Shannon, Mohill, Kinlough & Drumshanbo. All attending were very pleased with the new kit and looked very well on my visits to the camps. We would like to thank the Manor Rangers club for the use of their pitch during the Manorhamilton camp which was our largest ever camp with 175 children attending. Well done to all clubs involved with the six camps as venues were in excellent condition.

Camps continue this week in Aughavas, Gortletteragh & Dromahair and will conclude next week with our camps in Drumkeerin, Fenagh & Leitrim Village. Please note that its still not too late to register for any of the up coming camps. If parents dont have an application form they can download one from the GAA website Return all forms to Thomas Keenan, Pairc Sean, Ck – on – Shannon, Co.Leitrim.

U-16 Development Squad.
On Saturday last our under 16 squad took part in phase one of the Fr. Manning competition which was a blitz day in the Longford Slashers complex in Longford town. Leitrim beat Longford but lost out to both Roscommon and Sligo in two very close and exciting games. Roscommon and Sligo will contest the Fr. Manning cup final, with Leitrim and Longford contesting the shield final. Both games take place this evening Wednesday 16/07 in Longford Slashers, with the shield final commencing at 6pm and the cup final at 8pm.

Minor Hurling Blitz.
Our minor hurlers took part in a blitz on Saturday last in Tubbercurry. This is the first minor hurling squad to represent Leitrim in some time and they faired very well. They lost out to Sligo in their first game by 3 points but went on to beat both Donegal and Longford in their remaining games. Well done to all involved especially Olcan Conway for all his hard work with this squad.
