Even the President Elect is jumping on the Davitts bandwagon…
Davitts senior team will play the Roscommon Intermediate champions Padraig Pearses in the Connaught Intermediate final in Kiltoom on Saturday, Nov 5th at 2pm. Kiltoom (St. Brigids GAA Club) is located about five miles from Athlone on the Roscommon road, next left turn past the blue sign for Athlone Driving Range.
Following the epic victories over Burrishoole in the Mayo final and Melvin Gaels of Leitrim in the Connaught semi final, Davitts are one step away from an historic provincial victory. Once again a mass exodus from Ballindine and Irishtown is assured and Kiltoom will be engulfed with the black and red tsunami. The support this team is attracting is incredible and is the talk of the province, so lets get behind Peter, John, Ja and our brilliant squad. Once again a big thank you to members of our neighbouring clubs for your much appreciated support.
Finally, Davitts GAA Club would like to thank the President Elect Michael D Higgins for taking the time out of his hectic schedule recently to stop off in Ballindine and meet with Davitts Captain Michael Conroy and nephew (in-law) Pat Coyne. Michael D’s roadside campaign poster situated near the Ballindine Graveyard has raised many eyebrows over the last few weeks, but as this photograph proves, Michael D is all too happy to be associated with the boys in black and red!
