Dromod

(Oldest Posts First)

Lads, for the majority of my life I thought that Bornacoola represented the Leitrim side of Rooskey and that Annaduff represented the village of Dromod. All this was thrown up int the air the other day when driving out by the Copper Still I spotted Bornacoolas pitch! Does Dromod share the two teams? Because of the sign in Dromod saying Annaduff credit union I always thought Dromod was the village of Annaduff parish. Could some kind Leitrim Gael clear this up for me?

The copper still side of Dromod is in the parish of Bornacoola the village is in Annaduff. As you cross from the copper still to the village you go over the railway bridge and immediately after this you cross a river, (the same river as flows through Eslin Bridge I do believe). The Eslin river marks the divide of the two parishes, it also crosses the road again between Dromod and Rooskey on it's way to join the Shannon, this again marks the divide between the two parishes meaning that of Rooskey (Leitrim side of the Shannon) is in Bornacoola and The village of Dromod is mainly in Annaduff

Thanks for clearing that up leitrim4sam. It's mad how the Bornacoola's pitch is right beside the village of the neighbouring village. So the lads in the village of Dromod would have to drive out to Annaduff pitch instead of a handy walk out to Bornacoola's pitch!

Annaduff and Bornacoola also have the two closest pitches in Leitrim if I'm not mistaken

That is correct as the river flowing through the village beside the railway is the border between the two parishes. Gotta love the GAA parish and boundary rules don't you.

I wouldn't worry about having to choose between playing for either club. Both are useless.

Things must be quiet on the Roscommon forum Oddball?

Ah leitrimforsam I'd say Cloone and Aughavas are the closest to each other in the county. Cloone and Gortletteragh very close also. Aughawillan and Ballinamore probably less so but not far off

Cloone and Aughavas are indeed very very close but I'd be surprised if they were closer then Annanduff and Bornacoola, about two miles between both pitches there, I'd say about three between Cloone and Aughavas? Perhaps Glencar-manor and St. Osnets are closer but St. Osnets are opening a new field next year which is further away from Bee park than they used to play
