The long running saga of the Leitrim GAA Centre of Excellence may be coming to an end as County Board Secretary Diarmuid Sweeney reveals it will open it’s doors next month.

In his report to next Monday’s Leitrim GAA County Board Convention, Diarmuid writes “Next month will see the opening of the Leitrim GAA Centre of Excellence, a new era for Leitrim GAA. This facility will provide a base from which Leitrim teams of the future can prepare and prose spore.
