Leitrim GAA Management Committee at its meeting tonight decided that it would be recommending to its July County Committee meeting that Andy Moran’s current two-year term as Leitrim GAA Senior Football Team Manager would be extended to include the next two seasons that is 2023 and 2024.

We are delighted to announce that Andy Moran has accepted the terms of this recommendation, subject to its acceptance at the County Committee meeting, and we look forward to the continued progress of the Leitrim Senior Footballers over the next two years.

Leitrim GAA is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Pat Conefrey, late of Corrawllen, Carrigallen, County Leitrim. Pat was a former Principal Teacher of Drumlea NS, having previously taught in Gortahoose NS, before its closure. Throughout his time teaching pupils from the club area of Drumreilly, he imbued in them a love of Gaelic Games, which has borne much fruit in his club and indeed onwards towards the production of many players who excelled at inter-county level over the decades.

Pat himself was a former Senior player with Leitrim and featured regularly on the famous team of the late 1950s which contested a number of Connacht Finals of that era, and continued to play for the county into the 1960s. In his early playing days, he was also a member of the 1956 Erin’s Hope team which featured the St Patrick’s Drumcondra Trainee teachers who won a Dublin Senior Championship at that time. At the local level, he played his club football with Fenagh.

On the GAA administration front, Pat was a former officer of Bord na nÓg Liatroma and was the first Cathaoirleach of Cumann na mBunscol Liatroma. In 2007 he was inducted into the Leitrim GAA Hall of Fame and was presented with the Jim  Lynch Hall of Fame Award in recognition of his lifetime contribution to the GAA in the county. Pat had many strings to his bow and his weekly column as Drumreilly local correspondent in the Leitrim Observer was widely read and his careful and encyclopedic recall of what was then current and indeed many GAA past glories in his local area is a permanent record of events of those times.

Pat will be sadly missed by his beloved wife, Rose; their children: Jacinta, Jarlath, Damien, Fergal and Edel (McCartin); his sister, Mary Heeran; brother Willie; son-in-law John; daughters-in-law: Louise, Martina and Marianne and his adored grandchildren: Lee, Ben, Elle, Faye, Oisín, Olwyn, Éabha, Doireann, John (McCartin Jr), Tiarnan, John Conefrey, Ciaran and Grace.

We extend our deepest sympathies to his family and wide circle of friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.

Leitrim GAA is very disappointed to announce that Minor Football Manager Adrian Dockery has decided to step away from the role, following the conclusion of this year’s Connacht Minor Football Championship. The Roscommon native has been in charge of the county’s fortunes at this level over the past two seasons but has decided to relinquish the role, primarily due to an increased workload in his professional capacity.

Taking on the role of County Minor Manager in January 2021, in the midst of a nationwide Covid Lockdown was an arduous task for Adrian and his Management team and it wasn’t until late April that they could meet their prospective charges in person. Despite this, he and his coaching staff successfully moulded a team together to be very competitive in the 2021 Connacht MFC v Sligo in late July, which was played on a knock-out basis. Ultimately, Sligo went on to claim the title.

This season in which, thankfully, normality resumed, Adrian and his backroom team put together a squad of players that was one of the more competitive Minor Squads in recent times, resulting in performances that yielded a late draw with Roscommon and a first Connacht MFC victory over current All-Ireland Minor Semi-Finalists Galway, the first victory at this level over the Tribesmen since 1998. The campaign ended with a Shield Final loss to Roscommon on June 3.

Adrian has been a model of professionalism in his role as Leitrim Minor Manager and we thank him for taking on the role, first and foremost, and also for the attention to detail and marked improvement in performance level that he has been responsible for bringing to this group of players. He assembled an excellent backroom team to assist him in his role and Leitrim GAA wishes to acknowledge the significant contributions made by the following over the past two seasons:

Coaches – Shane King, Ray McBrien, Conor Harte, Denis Dolan (Goalkeepers), Alan Doherty
Stats & Analysis – James Boyle
Athletic development – James Mitchell
Physio – Ronan O’Rourke
Nutrition – Denise Stenson
Sports Psychology – David McHugh
Brian Mulvey and Colin Finneran were part of the 2021 Management Team also.

In tendering his resignation, Adrian went on to state: “I wish to express my gratitude for having been given the opportunity to manage the Leitrim Under 17 team for the last two seasons. It was an absolute privilege & a fantastic experience. I would like to thank our backroom team, Coaching & Games Staff, and Leitrim GAA County Board. Their work and support, often unseen, were enormously appreciated. Above all, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the players & their families for their commitment & efforts this past two years. I hope this outstanding group of young men enjoyed the experience and will continue to represent themselves, their families, clubs & county with distinction in the future. Thank you all.”

Leitrim GAA wishes Adrian and the members of his backroom team the very best of luck in his future endeavours.

Leitrim GAA wishes to offer its sincere sympathies to the Kenny and Hanrahan Fianilies on the sad passing of Breedge Kenny, Drumshanbo.

To her daughters Orla and Caitriona, sons Padraig and Oisin, sons-in-law, Michael and Seamus, daughter-in-law, Laura, grandchildren, Dara, Niall, Niamh, Cathal, Kate and Cian, sisters, Evelyn, Claire and Agnes, extended family, friends and neighbours we express our sincere sorrow.
