Letterkenny Athletic Club would like to offer condolences to club coach, Teresa McDaid and the Cullen family, following the death of their father, Leo Cullen. Condolences are also offered to son in law, Brendan McDaid, and granddaughter, Niamh.
Like Teresa, Leo was a Letterkenny Athletic Club stalwart, who gave generously of his time to assist the club in a wide range of roles, particularly in the club’s formative years.
He was heavily involved in the arrangements pertaining to the construction of the club’ss athletic track. He was also a valued member of the LAC committee, from its early days in 1972. He performed a wide variety of functions on the committee.
Leo Cullen, R.I.P.
