The National League

The second round of the 2015 national league took place on Sunday last, it was off to Aughrim for Leitrim to take on Wicklow on their home soil, never an easy task, well on this occasion it ended in disaster for the leitrim lads who were in the lead by 9 pts to nil after 27 minutes but the home side rallied back within 5 at half time and then continued their rampage in the second half to overtake Leitrim to take the spoils 11pts to 10. Both Longford and Roscommon came out winners in their respective games. Roscommon had a great win when they travelled to Newry beating Down by 4 pts while Longford overcame Antrim by the narrowest of margins in a tight encounter played in a foggy Pearse Park. There is a rest for a few weeks now, in round three Leitrim host Antrim in Park Sean on Sunday March 1st and in division 2 Roscommon take on Meath in Kiltoom same day while Longford travel to London.


Congratulations to Annaduff, Bornacoola & Rooskey National Schools who took part in the Credit Union Quiz last Sunday in Bornacoola Community Centre, a credit to their Parents and Teachers. Best wishes to the Junior & Senior teams going forward to Chapter Level on Sunday 1st March at 3pm in Bush Hotel, Carrick on Shannon.

Leitrim Supporters Club

The Leitrim GAA Supporters tickets are now on sale at a price of €40, this is the main fundraiser for the year so your support would be greatly appreciated.

Bornacoola GAA

Bornacoola GAA Club has been chosen for the Tesco Community Fund in Tesco, Carrick-on-Shannon. The initiative will see €1000 split between three community groups, depending on the number of “blue disc” votes each group gets. Each time you shop in the store, you will be given a blue disc which you can then add to the Bornacoola GAA pile! So if you are shopping in Tesco, make sure you allocate your discs to Bornacoola GAA - more discs we get, the more money the club will receive.
