Fixtures & Results
We kicked off our 2014 division 2 league campaign on Friday night under lights
in Kiltubrid against neighbours Fenagh-St Callian’s, where the going could
surely be described as soft. We ended up on the losing side by a single point.
Final score being 0-11 to 1-9. Our minor
team also went down in their league opener when we lost to a stronger Glencar
Manorhamilton team in Manorhamilton on Saturday morning.
Minor training continues each Tuesday & Thursday at 7pm in Kiltubrid. There
is another minor league game scheduled for this Saturday morning so please
check the fixtures list elsewhere for confirmation of this fixture.
This week sees the Leitrim senior team back in action when they take on Carlow
in round three at home in Carrick on Shannon.
Best wishes to all involved.
Kiltubrid GAA wishes a speedy recovery to Eslin and Leitrim senior
player Tomás Beirne who was injured in a crash during the past week. We hope to see you out and about as soon as

Ard Na Speire
This event took place in Kilclare on Sunday in memory of the late Sandra
Earley. The weather held dry for the
occasion and helped with a huge turnout for a very worthy cause, Billys world.
Well done to the Ard Na Speire organising committee and all their helpers
headed up by Micheal and Anja Earley. A
very well run and enjoyable event, even if those hills around Drumbranned and
Kiltynashinagh appeared to have grown since last year.
Congratulations to two of our underage players, Fionn O’Brien and Dairmuid Mac
Thiarnain. Fionn came first in the under 16 section of the 10 K in a time of
46:32 while Diarmuid was the first under 16 home in the 4 K event with a time
of 17:39. Well done also to local lady,
Geraldine Mc Weeney who also had another podium finish in the ladies 10 K
Congratulations to Deirdre Meehan & Mark Fitzpatrick who celebrated their
wedding last weekend. A large group of
family, friends and neighbours joined in the celebration into the early hours. Some hardy souls even managed to continue
with round two the following day. Just
in case anybody should come across some missing white doves please contact Fr
Brian Shorty as he has been on the look out for them ever since!
