Mike Carty of Rosie O Gradys Bar & Restaurant hosted a magnificent Leitrim evening on Friday 3/5/13.
Leitrim Tourism Board kicked off the evening with a very informative promotional event which was attended by Joe Dolan, Chairman of Leitrim Tourism whos Bush Hotel is the Leitrim team sponsor; by Enda Stenson, Cathaoirleach of Leitrim County Council and by Sinead McDermott Leitrim Tourism Officer.
Frank Brady of the Leitrim Society and Leitrim GAA New York paid tribute to the work being done by Leitrim Tourism in promoting his home county while special guest Seamus ORourke regaled the large attendance with a selection from his famous repertoire.
In attendance also was Gerard Fitzgerald of Gerald Anthony Menswear Carrick on Shannon, sponsor of casual gear for the Leitrim team who with Joe Dolan was delighted to greet the team party and officials.
Joe Flynn, Cathaoirleach of the Leitrim County Board conveyed sincere thanks to Mike Carty for his generous sponsorship of the meal to the team party. All the Leitrim folk (home and USA based) in attendance had the opportunity to meet the Leitrim players and wish them well for Sunday.
On this wonderful Leitrim evening, the hospitality of Mike Carty set a wonderfully warm atmosphere as we all mingled and joined on the streets of Manhattan to wave off our heroes as they departed on their team bus.
