Leitrim GAA County Board Chairman Joe Flynn has made an impassioned plea for the county’s supporters to get behind the County’s team’s and join the 2013 Leitrim Supporters Club.
In a statement, Joe said “The annual Leitrim Supporters Club tickets have now been fully distributed throughout, not alone the county, but in all areas where Leitrim people are found.
“The Supporters Club is the lifeline that allows us prepare all our teams in the professional way that is necessary if we wish to compete in a meaningful fashion. This is now the 27th successive year of the Leitrim Supporters Club and Coiste Liatroma greatly appreciates the financial input of our followers and their continued support over those years.
“Our senior team are working very hard as they prepare for their remaining games in the League leading up to our championship meeting with New York on May 5. Our under 21 team face the challenge of Roscommon at the end of the month in the Connacht Championship and their preparations are very much on target for a successful campaign.
“All underage teams are in the very capable hands of former county players and a great buzz is evident in all the squads. The Leitrim Centre of Excellence at Annaduff is nearing completion and will be up and running later this year. On completion this will be the jewel in the crown and the envy of much bigger counties.
“Obviously all of these activities require a huge financial commitment from the board and the success of our Supporters Club Draw is paramount to our continued efforts to provide for the on going needs of Leitrim GAA.
“The Supporters Club Committee under Chairperson Shay Reynolds in Leitrim and Mike Feeney in Dublin are again appealing to your generosity and asking all with the promotion of Leitrim at heart to purchase a ticket and in doing so you will not only assist us in being as competitive as possible but will be in with a chance of winning many of our valuable prizes on offer.
“Lets all get behind our teams as “ní neart go cur le chéile”.”
