The 3rd Annual Leitrim Society mass was held Sunday, March 3rd. There was a great turn out and Fr. Dan Finn celebrated the mass.

The 2019 Spring Dance is March 23rd at the ICC in Canton from 7-11pm. Music will be provided by Margaret Dalton and Erin’s Melody. Please join us for a great evening. Tickets are $15. Donations for the Spring Dance raffle and desserts are greatly appreciated!

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kathleen Gallagher, wife of Frank Gallagher.

Please remember in your prayers, Denis Geoghegan brother of Kathleen Gallagher, who recently passed away in Ireland.

If you are interested in becoming more active in the Leitrim Society, we will be taking nominations for all board positions at the April meeting! We’d love to get some fresh faces on the board!
The general election will take place at the May 7th meeting, with the swearing in of all newly elected board members on June 4th.

Members need to renew their membership for 2019 for the Society. Dues remain the same- $20 per family and $10 per individual member.

The next meeting will be held at the Adams Corner Cafe and Butcher Shop, 782 Adams Street, Dorchester, MA. on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019 at 7:30pm. All are welcome to attend and most of us arrive early for dinner. We’d like to thank the Adams Corner Café for the generous use of the back room for our meetings. They have been gracious hosts and the food is outstanding! You can have an Irish breakfast (with homemade Irish sausage) for dinner!!
