New York Walkers for Leitrim out in force for 50 Mile Challenge Finale

Leitrim GAA is delighted to announce that the Leitrim supporters in New York are organizing a socially distanced Grand Finale walk next Sunday in conjunction with the ending of our month long 50 Mile Challenge.

Our challenge has grabbed the imagination of many with over 1,200 participating from all over the world including many well known faces Stateside.  Over the weeks, like our supporters across the globe, the green and gold army in New York having been regularly posting updates of their participation and to mark the end of the challenge they are gathering together on Sunday for a special Leitrim Day.

Leitrim GAA and our supporters in New York have a long association.  Our main sponsor JP Clarke’s owned by well known Leitrim people Seamus & Caitriona Clarke are worthy recipients of the Leitrim Guardian People of the Year 2021.

Message from New York Supporting Leitrim committee

As a show of support to all Leitrim people around the world who have taken part in the 50-Mile Challenge, we are asking Leitrim lovers to join us for a grand finale walk on Sunday January 31 in Tibbetts Park, Yonkers.

Anyone who has not had the opportunity to sponsor someone can still do so online, or in person next Sunday.

We will meet up at 9.45am in front of the main building.

We will have some socially-distant warm up exercises, take some photographs and then disperse for our walk around the lake, which is approximately two miles.

We look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your walk for Leitrim!
