The AGM of the Leitrim Pool Association will be held in the Pool Hall, Drumshanbo on this Wednesday September 3, at 9pm. All are welcome and your views on improving pool throughout the county would be appreciated.
Shane Barry: Due to the National ranking event in Limerick next weekend and a number of Leitrim players taking part, the LPA have to had to defer the Shane Barry Memorial to the following Sunday in Carthy’s, Lock 17 at 2pm. Entries to be in by 1:30 on the day for draw.
Sympathy: Sincere sympathy goes to the Murray family of Lismoyle, Drumsna on the death of their son, brother and father to a four year old daughter John Francis Murray. Indeed many a battle his father and him fought on the pool table in Club F, Effernagh. His Dad played for Ireland in the over 50s and also for Duignan’s and Club F. To John’s father, Sean, mother Caroline and Rachel, a former Ladies county ladies player and the extended Murray family, we extend our deepest sympathy on the death of this fine young man. Ar dheis De go raimh a hanaim.
Thanks: For a long number of years this correspondent has forwarded hand-written pool notes to the Leitrim Observer. As technology has come to forefront and easier ways for both, it is high time I put the pen aside and hand over to a younger person. Hopefully after Wednesday night someone will be appointed. I would like to thank John Connolly and the kind staff of the Observer for the courtesy shown to me at all times. Gur a mile maith agut.
