On New Years day the community of Glenfarne awoke to the horrific news that two of our young friends had been fatally injured in a traffic accident during the night. Adrian McSharry and Aidan Leonard had played football with St. Michaels N.S. and at all underage levels with Glenfarne/Kilty. Both lads excelled in all activities in which they participated. Adrian was a fantastic goalkeeper, and last year trained with the Leitrim U16’s. Adrian was also an accomplished drummer with his fellow musicians, Liam, Danny and Daniel.
Aidan was an excellent musician and he and his family provided many entertaining nights for many in the surrounding area. He was also an accomplished fisherman. He recently raised over €2000 for leukaemia by having his head shaved.
Words cannot express the sense of loss felt by the entire community. The club extends their sympathies to Seamus, Patricia and Yvonne and to Michael John, Theresa, Padraig, Michael, Brendan, Kevin and Claire. May they rest in peace.
We also wish fellow under-age player Liam Harkin, who was injured in the accident, a speedy recovery.
There will be a club meeting next Tuesday night jan 18th in ketty’s at 9pm, all welcome.
