Leitrim Winner of the Connacht GAA Jersey Day Announced


Connacht GAA saw a huge response from across the Province to ‘Jersey Day’.  Over 20,000 children took park in the initiative with entries returned from almost 200 schools.  The standard of entry was very high with excellent photos taken of many imaginative projects undertaken by the schools.

We take this opportunity to thank all the National Schools in Leitrim who participated in the Connacht Jersey Day.  The independent adjudicators were very impressed at the high standard of entries received from the schools in the county and extend compliments to the teachers and pupils who were so enthusiastic towards the initiative.  After long deliberation the adjudicators decided to select LARGY National School as the Leitrim winner.  Well done Largy! 

Diarmuid Sweeney Runai Coiste Chontae Liatroma, Barbara Byrne Runai Coiste na nÓg and Collette Fox Oifigeach Caidrimh Poiblí will join Connacht PRO Tommy Moran as well as county players Adrian Croal and Brian McDonald when they pay a special visit to the school today, Friday 15th June between 1-2pm to present the school with their prizes.  The school will receive tickets for Leitrims Connacht football semi final match with Mayo on Sunday 24th June, coaching resources and equipment as part of their winning prize.

Connacht GAA would like to thank all schools for their involvement in ‘Jersey Day and record their thanks to Cumann na mBunscoil Liatroma for promoting the initiative on behalf of Connacht GAA.
