Episode 100: Leitrim Daily Live – Part 2
Last Tuesday night in The Glens Centre, Manorhamilton we held our first ever Live Episode Recording previewing this weekend’s Leitrim Football Finals at Senior and Intermediate level. This is the second part of that show.
Órla McNabola starts proceedings with a conversation with secretary of North West STOP, Deirdre O’Hagan, about the fantastic work that they carry out in the region with their counselling service for those who are feeling depressed or suicidal or those who have been bereaved by suicide.
Their work is entirely supported by charitable donations and many, many events like Tuesday’s to support their efforts across Leitrim, Sligo, Roscommon, Mayo, Donegal and Cavan. As it is World Mental Health Week, you can make a donation directly at www.northweststop.ie/donate/
Youth Olympic medallist Dearbhla Rooney brings us behind the scenes in the Glencar/Manor camp
Breifne Earley took a trip to Ballinamore to see how Sean O’Heslins were faring up ahead of their first senior final in 21 years.
Cormac O’Suilleabhain and Sean Boylan join Breifne for a panel discussion about the game, with some contributions from and about our other guests on the night including Joe Honeyman and Aidan Rooney.
The Senior Final between Sean O’Heslins and Glencar/Manorhamilton will be played at 3pm on Sunday afternoon in Avantcard Pairc Sean MacDiarmada. This will be immediately preceded by the Intermediate Final between Leitrim Gaels and Drumkeerin at 1pm.
Tickets are available at the venue on the day.
