Club Notes - Jan 26th 2009:

November 8, 2018

FBD League:

Well done to Colm Clarke who made an explosive start to his Leitrim career against Sligo on Friday evening. Leitrim won on a score line of 1-9 to 1-8 and Colm’s great second half goal was decisive in that victory. With the national league beginning this weekend in London the whole club would like to wish him and the team the best of luck.

Elsewhere we would like to congratulate Eamon O’Grady for his performance in what appeared like a cracking FBD league final in Tuam on Sunday. It took extra-time to separate Galway and Roscommon in front of 3,000 fans. We would like to also wish Eamon a speedy recovery as I understand that he picked up an injury during the match.

Under 21s:

Hard luck to Thomas Davitt and Aiden Dolan who were on the Leitrim Under21 panel that were defeated by a highly regarded Roscommon side in Kiltoom on Saturday.


Last Wednesday the club held a very well attended EGM. At that meeting Michael Forde took up the role of secretary of the club, while Francis Davitt and Seamus Duignan have decided to share the responsibilities of Treasurer. Thanks to all of them as these are two of the most important positions on the executive and I am sure all men, like they have done before, will carry out great work.

Special Club Lotto Draw:

One result of that meeting was that the club have decided to pursue a special club lotto draw. Yearly tickets that will see you entered for all club lotto draws for the coming year can be purchased as of now. If you decide to buy these tickets at a cost of €50 then you will be entered into an additional special draw at Easter with all other yearly ticket holders and be in with a chance of winning €500.

The cost of running a club has never been higher and your support for this fundraising effort by the club would be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in buying a ticket you can contact any member of the executive. In addition club members will be calling to local households in the coming weeks.


The club lotto continues this weekend. Jackpot is €1,485. You can now also support the lotto online at

Senior Training:

Senior training began on Sunday. The club would like to welcome back Ken McPartland and John McTiernan who have again taken on the roles of manager and selector respectively. In addition John has been joined by new selectors Noel Flynn and Joe Walpole. We wish the whole team and management the best for the year.

Registration Day:

Registration day took place on Saturday. Although there was a good attendance, there are still a number of members that could not make it. As a result a further registration day will take place this Saturday week, the 7th of February, between 11-12. It is vital that all underage players fill out a registration form. Notification will also be sent to schools in the coming days.

Dublin v Tyrone:

Dublin take on all Ireland champions Tyrone this Saturday under lights in Croke Park. It is sure to be a special occasion as the match will tie in with the GAA’s 125th anniversary celebrations at HQ on the night. The club have a couple of complementary tickets for the match. If anyone is interested in availing of these they can contact Stephen Feeney @ 086 0663228.
