JP's 100K

First and foremost - thanks to JP. Great boost for a county like Leitrim to get €100,000.

What do people think we should do with the money though? I'd like to see it spent on worthwhile causes that will benefit the entire county: maybe use it to pay the apparently sky-rocketing rates on Pairc Sean for a few years, or maybe keep it as a nest egg for a few years so the county board can fly first class to New York next time round. Any other ideas?

I presume you are joking Magnum. Absolutely no to County Board. That money has been given from JP for the use of clubs. Clubs are cash strapped and should be distributed immediately. 24 clubs in Leitrim although I'm not sure about St Osnats now. But 24 clubs get €4166 each. Thank you JP

Some Chandeliers for the dressing rooms in Annaduff would be a nice touch,

They could pay a few lads to do Valet parking in Pairc Sean, hate having to park the car.

Waste of time - we're now loaded. Why not build a light rail system from the Tesco's across the road?

Wait until you see.... there will be an 'appeal' for clubs to donate their share to the centre of excellence. FRO as the young un's would say...

Clubs should get it but be sure the co Board will weasel it out of them during the year.
