Paddy, a gentleman of the highest calibre, a native of Co Kilkenny has been one of the driving forces behind the promotion of hurling in Leitrim for many years.

The club would also extend its sympathy to the family and friends of the late Gus Guckian who passed to his eternal reward recently. Gus played against us on many occasions and wasn’t the easiest defender to negotiate by. May he rest in peace.
