Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club Notes 06/02/2019

Leitrim – A terrific win away to Wicklow at the weekend made it two wins from two for our Leitrim footballers and with the visit of Antrim to Páirc Seán this Sunday let’s all make the effort to roll in behind this mighty bunch of players.  Our hurlers have been desperately unlucky over the last two weekends losing by a point to both Cavan and Sligo.  Hopefully, their luck will improve.

Sympathy – Our club members were shocked and greatly saddened to learn of the passing of a great GAA friend in Tom Guckian, Carrick on Shannon.  Tom was one of the most obliging club members we ever had the pleasure of dealing with down through the years whilst a visiting team to Páirc Seán or Páirc Tom.  He has left a lasting mark on all who knew him and his passing will leave a massive void. We extend our sympathies to his beloved family, many friends and his club St Mary’s GAA. Ár dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Old Club Jerseys – We are looking for people to search out their wardrobes, garages and attics in search of old club jerseys which were used by our adult and juvenile football and hurling teams in the club (male and female) in the following decades – the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 2000’s.  They are needed for our 50th club celebrations.  Please contact Collette Fox asap on 0866020192 if you can assist.

Ladies Club History – In preparation for our club’s 50th anniversary in 2019, the ladies club are looking to dig out all old photos, match programmes, newspaper clippings or any other club memorabilia to help prepare a detailed history of the history of the ladies club. We are also trying to compile the names of all club officers/managers/club award winners since the club was formed – so if you were an officer/manager/award winner – please forward any information you can.  Please email any correspondence you have to
