Gortletteragh GAA Club Notes 02/01/2019

Santas vs Elves – The battle of the festive season was renewed again on St Stephens Day as the Santa’s got one over on the Elves in an entertaining contest played in festive spirits. Thanks to all the players for tagging out for the seasonal spectacle and to Terry Kelleher for organising the match day uniforms.

A sum in the region of thousand Euro was raised on the day with all proceeds going to the Leitrim / West Cavan branch of Down Syndrome Ireland.

Underage Medal Presentation – Huge thanks to All-Star Rory Beggan for presenting medals to our U12’s, U13’s and U15’s Sunday evening 16th. Our MC on the night was Terry Kelleher. Rory was a great example to all our young footballers and he gave a great insight into what it takes to become the best. Terry did an excellent job on the night- it was as good as the Sunday Game.! Thanks, Terry.

We’d like to thank all who supported our Christmas hamper draw on the night too. First prize: Danny Costello
Runner up prizes; Carla Mitchell, Tom Crowe, Margaret Reilly, Tomas Hynes, Sarah O’Leary, Colum Fox.

We’d like to thank everyone who helped out on the night from doing the sound, taking photos, organising the hall and helping to put away all the chairs and tables afterwards, serving out the refreshments/food and all who sponsored prizes for the hamper. A special thanks to Santa for making an appearance on the night!! A big thanks to all the Underage footballers who made the Christmas hamper draw a great success. A big well done again to the successful U12’s, U13’s and U15’s. Wishing you all a very Happy new year and looking forward to more successes in the future.
