The new season in Leitrim will kick off this weekend and it is our Minor team who will be first into action this Sunday morning at 11am. No confirmation of the fixture at the time of writing but you can get confirmation in the Fixtures section of the Observer or at www.leitrimgaa.ie. Our first team are expected to begin their Division 2 league campaign on February 27th when Eslin will be the opposition. The following weekend (March 6th/7th) sees the first round of games in Division 3 and Division 5.
Our best wishes to club stalwarts Shane Reynolds and Orla Bohan who get married this Saturday in St Michael’s in Bornacoola. A very popular couple around the parish, Shane and Orla have been at the heart of the club for many years and both have served as players, administrators and even Scór performers with distinction for Bornacoola over many years. In a lengthy playing career, Shane won both Junior Championship and league medals with Bornacoola and while success eluded him at Senior level, he was very proud to be part of the Bornacoola team that regained it’s senior championship status in 1998 after nearly 40 years in the doldrums. He is currently the club Secretary.
Orla’s big onfield success came as part of the 2004 Ladies Junior Championship winning team; she has been involved in many administrative roles in recent years and has performed regularly in Scór for Bornacoola over the years. I’m sure this will be a great weekend for Shane, Orla and their families, and we wish you both all the very best in your married lives together.
