Gaeltacht Grant – Leitrim County Board and Leitrim County Council have agreed on a scheme for Gaeltacht Grants for 2018. Applications will be accepted from boys and girls resident in Leitrim and, for these grants, they do not need to be members of GAA clubs. Grants of €200 will be awarded to the successful applicants who will be drawn from a hat. Applicants who were unsuccessful under the GAA’s own scheme will be included in the draw and need not apply again. Application forms can be found on the Leitrim GAA website and should be returned to Oifigeach Cultúr agus Teanga, Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada, Cora Droma Ruisc, Co Liatroma by 5 pm on Friday, February 16th. Any queries contact Sean O Suilleabhain at 087 6821566.

National Draw Tickets – The National draw tickets are on sale locally, they cost €10 each with fantastic prizes. This is one of our main Fundraising events and all proceeds go towards the cost of running the club. We very much appreciate your support.

Leitrim Supporters Draw – The Leitrim GAA supporter’s tickets are now available from any club officer. If at all possible can you buy your ticket from a Leitrim Gaels club member as each club has their own allocation of tickets which they must sell, rather than outside the Club. The proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the cost of preparing the Leitrim Senior team throughout the year. As usual, there is a wide range of decent prizes for all members entered in the draw. You also get a car Sticker showing your support for Leitrim. Tickets are priced at €50.

Sympathy – We would like to pass on our deepest sympathy to the family of Paddy Phelan. He was a stalwart of hurling in the county/ Carrick Hurling Club collecting and dropping Leitrim Village lads home after training sessions and games throughout his life. A gentleman from Kilkenny he will be fondly remembered in Leitrim and beyond. On behalf of Leitrim Gaels, we extend our sympathy to his wife Monica, sons Hilary, Alan and Patrick , his brother in law Tom Gleason, the extended family and friends and all connected with hurling who knew Paddy so well. Ar dheis Dé do raibh a anam.
