Aidan Crossan was one of five brothers who, between them, collected 19 Senior Football Championship medals as part of Ballinamore Seán O’Heslin’s teams in the golden years of the 1970s and 1980s. Aidan was a panel member for two senior football championship wins and also a senior hurling championship. For a number of years he played with Aughnasheelin and won a junior football league with the club. When P J Carroll took over the management of the Leitrim senior team in 1989, he chose Aidan Crossan as one of his selectors and this team brought Leitrim their All Ireland B title in 1990. Aidan also organized a fundraising walk for the underage teams in the Seán O’Heslin’s and Aughnasheelin clubs for a number of years. Aidan had a passionate interest in the GAA and was also involved with teams in Cavan.
Aidan passed away on Friday last and will be buried on Monday in Killygarry, Co Cavan.
