Leitrim-Cork Wedding

The wedding took place on Saturday last July 5th in St Mary’s Church, Gortletteragh of Áine Keighran of Drumbad and Séamus O’Connor from Cork. Celebrant at the marriage ceremony was Rev. John Quinn P.P. Chief bridesmaid was Clare Keating, sister of the bride while the bridesmaids were Miriam McAuliffe and Lauren Keighran. Brother of the groom, Michael O’Connor was bestman while Gerard Linehan and Dylan O’Connor were the groomsmen. Katie Quinn was the pretty little Flowergirl and Daniel McAuliffe was the handsome Pageboy. The beautiful church music and song was by Dan Twomey and Derek Mahady. A marvellous wedding reception was held in the Sheraton Hotel, Athlone followed by a very lively dancing session.

We wish Áine and Séamus, who will be living in Cork, many years of health and happiness in their married lives.

Football Fare

Gortletteragh had a very fruitful weekend on the football fields with two good wins. On Saturday in Cloone they proved too strong for Annaduff in the second round of the Senior championship when winning by 0 – 12 to 1 – 6 while on Sunday at the same venue, they again defeated Annaduff in the Junior championship by the tightest of margins on a scoreline of 3 – 5 to 0 – 13. Well done lads.

Cornageeha Centre Lights

Following requests from their respective constituents, Cllrs Des Guckian and Martin Kenny have asked Leitrim County Council to erect public lighting outside the Cornageeha Community Centre. This was promised some years ago. Cornageeha Centre was built over forty years ago and is very much in need of public lighting, especially in winter. This is good news as  members of the Autumn Club had been following up on this matter in recent weeks.

Swimming Classes

The annual swimming classes are in full swing at Keeldra Lake. With record numbers of children in attendance, it is great to see this amenity being put to such good use. Long may it last.
