The Big Apple – The first round of the Connacht senior Football championship is now upon us, as the Leitrim team, Co Board officials and supporters head off across the Atlantic for their much-awaited clash with New York in Gaelic Park. Games in the Connacht Championship have become close affairs in recent years and no doubt this year will be no different. We wish the team and management the best of luck and hope that all supporters have a great weekend.

Terry McCormack Cycle – Our club has been honored to host a stage of the Terry Mc Cormack memorial cycle which took place last weekend. Its three years since Terry’s tragic passing and the cycle passing through our parish is a fitting tribute to a true gentleman and a GAA Legend. We would like to acknowledge correspondence from Marie McCormack on behalf of the McCormack family acknowledging our association with the event over the last three years.

Congrats – We would like to extend our sincere congratulations to team player Declan Brennan and Claire Reynolds Mohill who announced their engagement recently in Dubai. With the championship coming up Declan we would love to have you back contesting a place.

Connacht Under 17 FC –We would like to extend our best wishes to the Leitrim under 17 team who start the under 17 Connacht Championship campaign on this Wednesday evening against Mayo in McHale Park Castlebar at 8 p.m. Our club will be represented by our up and coming star Niall Keegan Faughill, and we wish him and the Leitrim the best of luck. We urge all supporters to make the trip to Castlebar to support our stars of the future.

Westlink Coaches Under 15 League – Well done to our six representatives on the Mohill team who had a good win over Sean O Heslin’s Ballinamore on Thursday evening last. Well done to all involved.
