Leitrim GAA is delighted to announce the appointment tonight of Brendan Guckian as the U20 Minor Team Manager for 2021. Brendan, a former St Mary’s Kiltoghert player, and Senior Team Manager with the club was most recently at the helm of Leitrim Under 17’s in 2020, and previous to that was Leitrim Senior Team Manager in 2017 and 2018. A Connacht Senior Championship medallist in 1994 with Leitrim, Brendan brings a wealth of experience to his new role with Leitrim GAA. He will be assisted in his role by the members of last year’s minor management team, including Emlyn Mulligan, Jimmy Guckian, Enda Lyons, Kevin Ludlow, Alan Doonan, Philip Howard, Ronan O Rourke and Brian Blake.

Leitrim GAA is delighted to announce the appointment tonight of Adrian Dockery as the U17 Minor Team Manager for 2021. Adrian, who lives in Ballinamore, is a native of Ballinagare, Co. Roscommon, and a former player with Roscommon at all levels. A former Senior Team Manager with Shannon Gaels and Roscommon Under 21s, Adrian has more recently been involved with the Management Team of the Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s Senior Team which reached the 2019 Leitrim SFC Final, and as joint manager of the St. Joseph’s Ladies Senior team in 2020. We would like to wish Adrian the very best of luck in his role and we look forward to announcing the remaining members of his management team very soon.

Leitrim GAA is delighted to announce that Senior Team Manager Terry Hyland has agreed to continue in the role of Senior Football Team Manager for the 2021 season. This evening’s meeting of Leitrim GAA Management Committee formally approved this position. Leitrim GAA wishes to thank Terry and his management team for the efforts they have made over the 2020 season, in what has proved a most challenging year, given the extraordinary set of circumstances that we have been through since last March. We are delighted to have secured the services of Terry and our outgoing management team and look forward to the continued progress of this group of players over the 2021 season.

As we look forward to Saturday’s #LeitrimGAASupportingOthers we offer you the latest in the promotional material that our technical staff has been working hard behind the scenes to produce. This time, our anchorman John Lynch conducts an interview with incoming Uachtarán Larry McCarthy from his New York base. We have a very strong connection with New York at the moment as Caitríona and Seamus Clarke of JP Clarke’s, of course, are the current Leitrim Team Sponsors. Also participating is Leitrim Senior Team Manager Terry Hyland.

Uachtarán Tofa CLG Larry McCarthy shares an insight into what the New Yorkers are currently experiencing as regards the COVID-19 Pandemic outlining the harrowing situation experienced on the ground and the effect this crisis is having on the Irish in New York, particularly in relation to the unemployment crisis. He acknowledges the huge connection that New York currently experiences with Connacht GAA and stresses the important role the GAA plays in fundraising at this time. This is reinforced by Terry Hyland who stresses the importance of Leitrim’s involvement in raising awareness of the New York situation as it currently stands. Sláinte 202o is the organisation that is spearheading the New York aid package on behalf of Irish people. We are very pleased that Larry McCarthy accepted the invitation to appear on this broadcast. As always we thank John Lynch for anchoring this production.

We look forward to the support of all Leitrim people on Saturday in what should prove to be an uplifting experience for all Leitrim people both near and far!

The proceeds of Saturday’s fundraising will be Sláinte 2020 and Pieta House. This evening, almost €6k of the €10k target has been reached and it continues to grow steadily.

Our host John Lynch interviews Leitrim Manager Terry Hyland and players Ryan O’Rourke and Paddy Maguire in advance of this Saturday’s fundraiser for New York’s Slainte 2020 campaign and Pieta House. Members of the public are asked to participate in the event over the weekend by raising sponsorship and to enjoy the fun as you wear and share your Leitrim colours with pride.

The current players and many elder lemons will  be linking in with family/friends both near and far to sponsor them so please give generously – all proceeds go to two very worthy charities that are close to Leitrim peoples hearts.  Keep an eye out for many famous faces of the past as they appear on our social media channels over the next few days asking for your support.

A special facebook page is operational here at Leitrim GAA – Supporting Others and ready for all the pics and the GoFundMe page for donations is accessible now if you wish to donate here.  Over €5,000 has already been raised with thanks to many donors and we aim to achieve the €10,000 target.

 

 

 

Leitrim GAA Senior Players, present, and past invite supporters to join them on Saturday next May 16 as they complete a 5km/10km run, cycle, walk for charity.

The beneficiaries of this worthy fundraising undertaking will be Pieta House and Sláinte 2020.

Pieta House provides free therapy to those engaging in self-harm, with suicidal ideation, or bereaved by suicide. They rely on the generosity of the public whose donations and fundraising make up over 80% of their income.

Sláinte 2020 is a collective fundraising effort to assist the Irish community in the New York area during the COVID-19 Pandemic and is a partnership consisting of The Aisling Irish Centre, Emerald Isle immigration Centre, New York GAA, New York Irish Centre, and United Irish Counties.

We are asking people to join our squad as they complete a 5km/10k run, cycle, walk throughout the day Saturday, and engage with live posts.

We invite past players, supporters, and families to partake in this Special Leitrim Day for Charity.

So why not join the lads in your Leitrim GAA Colours, take some pictures and post to #LeitrimGAASupportingOthers.
