A special anniversary mass to remember Leitrim GAA footballing legends Packie McGarty and Cathal Flynn in St Patrick’s Church in Mohill on Saturday, April 9, at 11 am.
With Covid restrictions in place last year, the Leitrim GAA community was unable to pay fitting tribute to McGarty, who passed away on April 6, 2021, and Flynn who passed away on June 3, 2021.
Friends, former players & GAA Supporters will gather for the special anniversary mass on April 9, to remember two of the greatest footballers ever produced in Mohill, Leitrim and Ireland. Everyone is welcome to come along.
