It is with deep sadness that Coiste Chontae Liatroma report the passing of former Leitrim Footballer Seamus Dillon.
Seamus was one of lifes true gentlemen. He had a great love for his club Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher and always took great pride in togging out for them. He had the distinction of captaining their senior team on a number of occasions and he also won an U21 County medal with GlenManor Gaels in 1998. In recent years he was also involved in managing underage teams for his club.
He was an extremely talented player who represented the Green and Gold with distinction. Seamus played for the Leitrim senior team in the 1998/1999 season and made his senior championship debut against Roscommon in 1999 and made his league debut against Dublin in 1999.
Despite his recent injury Seamus remained a loyal supporter of both his Club and County. Chontae Liatroma take this opportunity to extend our deepest sympathy to his family, the Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher GAA Club and his many, many friends.
Ar Dheis De go raibh a anam dilis.
