Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club Notes 22/01/2019

Congratulations Karl – Congratulations to our own Karl McDermott who has been awarded the Leitrim Senior County Hurler of the Year for 2018. He had some super performances for Leitrim in 2018 and this award is due recognition to this and is richly deserved.  It is a great honour for Karl, his family and our club and we look forward to more stand out performances from him in the coming season for club and county. Karl will be presented with his award this Friday night at the Leitrim GAA Awards in the Bush Hotel.

New Arrival – We offer the heartiest of congratulations to our senior footballers Amanda and James Glancy on the safe arrival of their baby boy Finn recently.

5K Walk – We had a great turnout for our 5k walk last Thursday night in association with Get Ireland Walking and Operation Transformation. It continues this Thursday night for a further 5 weeks.  We look forward to welcoming more participants with registration at 7pm in the Dressing Rooms in the Bee Park.

Fair Play Ado – Former Leitrim and Glencar Manor Senior footballer Adrian O’Flynn is doing mighty with his daily swims in the rivers/lakes/sea in January to raise much-needed funds for our new pitch development.  Check out our Facebook Page for videos and to see how you can support.  We again commend Adrian for coming up with this initiative, for braving the cold waters on our behalf and to everyone who is joining him or supporting him and our club by making very generous donations.
