Comhbhrón – Aughawillan GAA would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and many friends of the late, Packie McGarty, Mohill, who passed away last week. Packie played for Leitrim for 23 years and was the only Leitrim player chosen on the Connacht Team of the Millennium.

In appreciation of the late Sean McNiffe – One month ago, on March 18th, Aughawillan GAA lost one of it’s great supporters. Sean was always first to buy a club lotto ticket and ensured his numbers were in since the draw started. Ahead of our annual Christmas Draw, his was the best house on Christy Creamer’s rounds for sales! Sean worked on a FÁS scheme at the pitch, with his work still on show today. The dugout, path and wall at the stand are a testament to his many talents. Sean loved the game of 25 and played in the clubrooms every Friday evening, pre-Covid, for the past few years. In recent years, Sean loved to watch his grandchildren play underage football at the pitch. Sean was also a leading light in the restoration of St Brigid’s Church, Corraleehan and was the ‘go-to man’ for information on agriculture and farm plans. Sean will be greatly missed by the community and our sympathies are with his wife, Bridie; sons, Tony, Sean, David; daughters, Jacinta and Tina, their partners and his 11 grandchildren. Ar dheis Dé go raibh ar a anam dílis. Leitrim GAA
