President to perfrom a triple launch

Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Criostóir Ó Cuana will perform the official launch of 3 very important documents on Wednesday December 2nd.  The documents in question are the Underage Review, the Leitrim Strategic Plan for 2009 to 2015 and a book entitled "Scéal CLG Liatroma 1984 — 2009".

A considerable amount of work has been under taken in consultation with Clubs in the Underage Review and the Strategic Plan documents.  Both are very important documents and will form a vital roadmap for the clubs and the county board in the years ahead.

The Underage Review committee, set up by County Board Chairman Gerry McGovern to undertake a thorough review of underage structures in the county, has carried out a microscopic review of all football structures and activities taking place in County Leitrim at school, club and county levels and have compiled a comprehensive report, complete with recommendations for Convention 2009. 

The second document comes from the recent county forum held to generate the Leitrim Strategic Plan for 2009 to 2015 which is a vital tool for the County Board in obtaining the in-put of all clubs in the county on the Leitrim County Strategic Plan for 2009 to 2015.  This consultation process is coming to a close and the final blueprint document will be launched on the night.

In GAA Centenary Year, 1984, Coiste Chontae Liatroma published "Scéal Liatroma," edited by Seán Ó Súilleabháin, which dealt with the story of the GAA in the county from the founding of the first club in Killinumerry in 1886.  With the GAA celebrating its 125th Anniversary this year, it is appropriate that the County Board will again produce a souvenir book. This will be "Scéal CLG Liatroma 1984 — 2009" and will give an overview of county activity during those 25 years and will cover football, hurling, handball, Ladies GAA, Coiste na n-Óg, Coaching, the development of the Boards IT, Féile Peil na n-Óg, infrastructural development — every aspect of the work of the GAA in Leitrim.

In addition to the two documents the president will launch this book which is produced by Tommy Moran on behalf of Leitrim GAA.
