Redevelopment Work: Work by Prunty Pitches commenced on the upgrading of the training pitch at Monaduff Park during the week. This is an exciting development for the club and when the job is complete we are looking forward to having a second top class floodlit pitch along with a walkway. Thank you to our supporter and neighbour Petie Joe Gill for the use of his field whilst works are ongoing.

Thank you: The club would like to thank the legendary JP McManus for his wonderful gesture during the week whereby he donated €100,000 to each county board for distribution to each club. This money will go a long way in promoting Gaelic Games all across the island of Ireland. Go raibh míle maith agat.

Wedding Bells: Congratulations to club player James O’Neill and his wife Zara Sheridan who got married last Friday. Everyone at the club wishes the couple a healthy and happy future together.

Best of luck: We would like to wish our former manager Gary Donohoe the very best of luck in his new role as a selector with the Leitrim senior football team.
