Drama – On this Friday night October 12th Cloone GAA present the Acorn players with their hilarious 3 act comedy ‘LOOPHOLE’ in Cloone Community Centre starting at 8 30pm sharp. This is a side-splitting comedy that will have you shaking in your seats and begging for more. We are very fortunate to have this quality of entertainment on our doorstep, so we appeal to you not to miss what promises to be a magnificent night’s entertainment.

Haunted Trail – It’s that time of year, and once again due to popular demand Cloone GAA will be presenting their Annual Haunted Trail. This year’s event will take place on Saturday October 27th from 6 30 until 10 pm. While this event has been growing in stature every year this year’s event is set to surpass all previous years events and a night not to be missed for young and old. The trail which starts with registration at the community Centre will cost € 8 per person, and children under 16 are to be accompanied by an adult.

Sympathy – Cloone GAA would like to extend its sincere sympathy to the family of the late Jim Meehan Drumahair whose untimely death took place last week. Jim has been an outstanding servant of the GAA and has served the association so very well at Club, County, Provincial and National level.

The Leitrim Wall – The Leitrim wall is a new initiative being organised by Leitrim County Board to complete the final phase of the Centre of excellence at Annaduff. The concept of the initiative is that patrons would buy a brick, stone or tile on which they can have their own personal inscription, and will be mounted on a newly constructed wall at the entrance to the new Centre.

This initiative gives Leitrim GAA supporters an opportunity to have a loved one remembered, at the Gaa centre and also contribute to the future development of Gaelic Games in the county. Experience of this initiative in other places is that families use the stones or bricks to remember family members who have had an active involvement in the GAA whither as players or administrators. They are commonly used as gifts to families and quite an amount of interest is being shown from exiles who have been away for a number of years and want their family name embedded in the fabric of Leitrim and in the GAA in particular. This final project will fully complete the New Centre to the highest standards, and provide a top quality training Campus which will include the most modern equipment and training facilities for the future generations of Leitrim footballers.

People who want to purchase a brick stone or tile can contact any club member. By buying a brick you are ensuring that your family name will be remembered in the folklore of Leitrim GAA and you are contributing to the future development of Gaelic games in the County.
