Next Sunday, Leitrim GAA County Board will honour the stars of the past and the future as part of the programme on County Final day.
The Melvin Gaels team who won the 1961 Leitrim Senior Championship will be introduced to the crowd at halftime of Sunday’s Senior Final while the Carrick-on-Shannon Area Community Games All-Ireland winning U-10 Mixed team will parade before the game.
Leitrim GAA will also accord special recognition to the memory of the late George O’Toole with the unveiling of a memorial to this renowned Gael by Leitrim GAA President James McGovern. The George O’Toole Memorial is located at the entrance to Árdán Mhic Shamhráin and the unveiling ceremony will take place at 3pm.
