Membership – Membership for 2018 is now due. All players from underage to senior must pay membership for insurance reasons while training and playing for the club. The membership funds go towards for players the €2,700 Player Injury Fund that we have to contribute to each year to cover potential insurance claims and for non-playing members toward the €1,800 we pay for public liability and property insurance to the GAA. There will be committee members at the Clubhouse from 18:30-20:30 Friday and at the games on Saturday and Sunday for membership registration. We look forward to seeing you there.

Leitrim Supporters Club 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.They can also be purchased in Mc Cormack’s Filling station.
