It is with deep sadness that Coiste Chontae Liatroma report the death of former Leitrim great Mick Kilkenny. Mick was one of the last surviving members of the 1938 Leitrim All Ireland winning Junior team which he captained. The Aughavas man was the recipient of the Jim Lynch Hall of Fame award at the Coiste Chontae Liatroma awards in 2005. He was a talented player who represented the Green and Gold with great distinction. He had a great love for his native county and was a loyal supporter of Leitrim GAA throughout his life. Coiste Chontae Liatroma take this opportunity to extend our deepest sympathy to his family and many friends.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
