The 10th Leitrim GOAL Mile held on New Years day in Bornacoola GAA grounds was another huge success, both financially and for the enterainment. A sincere thanks to all who donated money and items for raffle and auction, those who participated and helped out at the popular event. In all the event raised a staggering 4,038 euro for GOAL’S work in helping the survivors of the typhoon in The Phillippines. Once again, a huge thank you to all.
