Friday next represents a big day for club stalwart Sean Purcell as he ties the knot with Castlebar native Catriona Daly. Sean and Catriona got together during their Sligo I.T. days and the long term rumour was that Sean introduced himself to Catriona in the Leitrim bar with the line ”Hi I’m Sean, I play corner back for Roscommon” but this has been rebuffed many times since by Sean. The club extends its best wishes to the pair on the big day and welcomes home those who are traveling for the occasion.
