Leitrim GAA unveiled their new jersey sponsored by the Gallagher Group. A company based in Kent, England with over 500 employees

Leitrim have launched their new jersey sponsored by the Gallagher group.

Pat Gallagher was born and raised in Aughnacullion, Aughnasheelin, Co. Leitrim where his family had earned their living by running a country shop and small family farm.

In 1966 the family made the huge decision to emigrate to England. At that stage, Pat had completed his secondary education. Whereas, Pat was ambitious and it was his singular ambition to eventually own his own business.

Since 1973, the enterprise has gone from strength to strength. Pat is currently Chairman of the Gallagher Group; which is one of the largest and most recognisable family-run businesses in Kent, employing over 500 local people.

The new jersey was launched in Lough Rynn castle on Friday October 28. Shannonside Sports Darren Mulvey spoke to Leitrim GAA board chairman Enda Stenson.
