Ulster Bank GAA Force
We are delighted to confirm that Kiltubrid GAA have been chosen as this year's GAA Force National Winners. We were thrilled and delighted when we got the call from Ulster Bank representative and well known Leitrim ladies legend, Ann Marie Cox that our club were the overall prize winners in the country with a winning prize of €25,000.
The prize money is for the development of the grounds and facilities at the pitch and the cheque was presented to the Executive Committee on Monday evening last by Ann Marie Cox and Louis Walsh from Ulster Bank. We cannot thank Ulster Bank enough for this fantastic prize and express how much it means to the club to get funding of this magnitude and we congratulate all involved. As part of the competition we will be holding a club event to celebrate this win on Saturday morning 9th November at the pitch and we would like to invite all our club members, supporters and parishioners young and old to come along for some food, refreshments and fun on the day.

Fixtures and results
Unfortunately our senior team were beaten in the division 1 league by neighbours Mohill on Saturday evening last at home in Kiltubrid.
We have a division 3 league game on Sunday next at home to Gortlettragh at 3 pm.
Training for the under 16’s continues during the week. The championship final is due to be played on the first week of November. A full turnout of players is vital for the next two weeks and the next training at 7pm on Wednesday evening.
It’s that time of year again, the club AGM has been fixed for the 17th November. Please mark this date in your diary. With a quite successful year in the club overall, it is hoped that we will have a large attendance of players, parents and supporters in attendance on the day. If you have any motions, proposals or ideas for the club please feel free to forward to the club secretary well in advance of meeting.
