GAA County Board Chairman Joe Flynn has thanked Leitrim supporters all over the country for their enthusiastic support to the 2013 Leitrim Supporters Club draw, terming it a massive success.
In a statement to the Leitrim Observer, Joe said “Our annual main fundraising event of the year, The Supporters Club Draw, was completed with prizes now distributed and we are very pleased with the final figures as presented to Coiste Liatroma at their recent monthly meeting.
“The draw again was a massive success in these challenging times and a special word of thanks to the chairperson of the Supporters Club, Shay Reynolds, and his hardworking committee for their efforts over the two month period and to the Dublin Branch under the direction of Michael Feeney who surpassed their previous numbers.
“We introduced the concept of allocating a specific number of tickets per club over the past two years in the interest of fairness and collective responsibility and this initiative was undoubtedly paramount to the success of the draw.
“I take this opportunity to thank all who sold or purchased tickets, our main sponsors Coxs Steakhouse Dromod and The Embassy Rooms Sligo; clubs for achieving their sales target. All monies raised will be used to prepare all teams for our forthcoming championships.”
