On Friday, May 10, at 7pm, Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon will be buzzing with activity as Leitrim GAA hold an Open Night for supporters of all ages with the County Senior teams.
The Leitrim senior football and hurling teams, team managements, County Board officers, coaches and GPOs, supporters of all ages, team and championship sponsors, the local media and a virtual army of young stars of the future will converge on the county grounds for the Leitrim launch of the Connacht and All Ireland Football Championship.
There is a keen interest in team preparations and everyone will have an opportunity to see the players be put through their paces by Joint Team Managers Brian Breen and George Dugdale and see for themselves the massive efforts being made to have our team in ship-shape for the Connacht Championship.
Most of all the evening will see our young boys and girls get to meet their county players up close, to get their autographs and to dream of the day when they too might wear the Leitrim jersey with the same pride and enthusiasm as the current county squads.
The emphasis will be on a fun evening and an ideal chance to meet the players one to one and to extend our good wishes to them for the forthcoming campaign.
Young and old are welcome to come along to Páirc Seán on Friday evening, May 10, at 7pm.
Nothing beats being there!
