Leitrim Harriers
AGM is going to be held Friday 20 May 8:30pm at Mitchell’s Bar, Carrigallen, Leitrim. All welcome. Puppy walkers needed: Leitrim Harriers have a selection of puppies looking to be walked. For those not lucky enough to have done this before it involves fostering a puppy or puppies for a period of a few months. During that time the temporary home acclimatises  the puppy to life, getting them used to collar and lead , children etc. Basically the foster home gives the puppy confidence ready for their new life in the pack. Often there is the opportunity to name the puppy and the pleasure of watching your hound enter the pack in the autumn.If you feel  you can support the Hunt in this way please contact James Mee 087 6833457 or Sarah Grimes 0838130589 . Share with your friends you never know they might just like to do this!

The Celebrant will be, Celebrant: Br. Bryan Shortall, Capuchin Priest from Dublin and Manager of Irish Centre for Padre Pio, Pastor to St. Francis’s Church & Parish Dublin   and Author of “Tired of all the bad news”. There will be Capuchin Friars present with Relics of St. Pio for individual blessings after the Mass.
