There was double success for Bornacoola at the County Finals of Scór in Mohill on Saturday night last. In Recitation, Louise Staunton captured the county title while she was joined by Liam Rabbitte and Aidan Dockery on the Question Time team that yet again captured the County Title. Well done to you all and indeed our best wishes as the Bornacoola and Leitrim representatives move on to the Connacht Finals in Loughrea, Co Galway on Saturday evening next at 6pm.
Underage Open Day
An Open Day for all children up to the age of 16 who are intending to play for Bornacoola in 2010 will be held in the park this Saturday morning at 11am. It is essential that all players who want to play underage football for the club are registered and it will only cost €5 to become a member of the Association for the year, ensuring insurance and injury cover. The maximum cost for any one family of youngsters will be €10. We would ask parents to attend also to ensure the correct information is supplied with filling out the membership application forms. You should also note that tracksuit tops and bottoms ordered can be collected next Saturday at registration.
Seachtain na Gaeilge Quiz
Best wishes to our Seachtain na Gaeilge Quiz Team of Aidan Dockery, Evelyn Reynolds, Liam Rabbitte and Marie Therese Dockery who travel to Croke Park on St Patrick’s Day for the All Ireland final of the Seachtain na Gaeilge quiz. The team have been most impressive in their progress through Liatroim and Connacht en route to the All Ireland final and it would be an enormous honour for the club if they were to capture the national title on St Patrick’s Day. Ádh Mór oraibh.
Leitrim GAA Supporters Club
The Leitrim GAA Supporters Club draw for 2010 was postponed as a mark of respect to the late Kevin Reynolds. Anyone interested in purchasing a ticket can do so this week via club chairman Declan Conboy. Tickets cost €40 each and there is a great list of prizes on offer. We would ask all those in the club who were given tickets to sell to please return them before the weekend to Declan who can be contacted at 087 8395780
Our best wishes to club stalwart Aidan Reilly (Cloonart) and his fiancée Sinead Hanley (Rooskey) who will be married this Friday. Aidan has been a great servant of the club over the years – on and off the field - and won a plethora of underage medals with Bornacoola before moving up to the adult ranks where he won Junior league and Championship medals in the Black and Amber. A series of unfortunate injuries over the years have probably prevented Aidan from reaching his full potential as a footballer, but he has had a clean run at things so far this year and is in great form at the moment.
Sinead meanwhile has become a familiar face at Bornacoola games over the years and has long been considered one of the Bors! Our best wishes to this very popular couple for a great day on Friday and long life and happiness together in the years ahead.
