Our Division 2 league campaign kicks off on this Sunday with an away match in Drumkeerin. Throw in for the game is at 2.30pm.
Our junior match with St Marys due to be played last Sunday was postponed due the bad weather on Sunday morning.
Our Monthly 50/50 club draw took place on Sunday night in Ketty’s Bar, Glenfarne. The following were this month’s winners: €100 Katie McDermott, €50 Peter Clancy, €25 Francis McGovern. Thanks to everyone who bought tickets for the draw. Also thank you to Terence and Susan for the use of their premises and for providing refreshments on the night.
Our U-16 played their second match of their league campaign on Friday evening last. Unfortunately on this occasion we were beaten by a very strong Ballinagleara team. Our next game is on Friday evening next against Aughnasheelin in Aughnasheelin. The game throws in at 6.30pm and all players are asked to be at the Rainbow by 5.10pm.
Glenfarne Ladies made their first appearance for many years in the Leitrim Ladies Football league when they took on Fenagh in Division Three on Sunday morning last. On this occasion the girls were beaten by Fenagh. It is great to see a Ladies team back wearing the Black and White. Best wishes to the girls and their manager Sean Clancy for the rest of the season.
Well done to Fergal Clancy who is currently representing the club on the Leitrim Minor team. Fergal has played in the last two Connacht Minor League games which included an impressive win over a very good Mayo team. We wish Fergal and his colleagues on the Minor panel all the best for the coming year.
