Sympathy – We offer heartfelt sympathy to the family of the late Father Felim Kelly retired P.P. Castlerahan, late of The Vale, Bailieborough, Co Cavan.  We extend our sympathies to Father Oliver Kelly who is his 1st cousin.  Father Felim was based in Newtownmanor as part of the Killasnett Parish in the 70s.  He played football with our club winning a Junior League and Championship double in 1971.  He also served as club chairman in 1971 and was a founding member of youth clubs in some of the parishes he served in.  We also offer sympathy to the family of the late Michael Conroy of Castle Street, Manorhamilton, who died peacefully at University Hospital Galway on 3rd May 2019 and the Fox family, Lisnabrack following the passing of Patricia Fox, Mountain View, Manorhamilton.  May They Rest In Peace.

Tain Og League – Well done to the u13 hurlers who played St. Eunan’s on the 29th of April in the Táin league. Eunan’s were the much bigger team but the Leitrim boys didn’t let them dictate the game with the sides level at half time with the help of a wonder goal by Barry Loughlin. Eunan’s ran out winners in the second half. They played Belleek in their last game and enjoyed the experience.  They play Erne Gaels Belle away this coming Monday at 7pm.  Keep up the good work lads.
