Club Legends
Walter Kivlehan

Walter Kivlehan, our club President, has been synonymous with the GAA in Mullinabreena for more than fifty years. In the early nineteen sixties Walter came in as Club Secretary with Peadar Gorman as Chairman to revive the club. He remained as club secretary for more than thirty years, a period which saw the GAA in the area put on a firm footing. He, along with Peadar Gorman, organised the purchase of the club grounds in 1977. This was a major milestone in the history of the club.

A native of Cloondrihara, Lavagh, Walter has lived and worked practically all his life in the parish of Mullinabreena. Through his involvement in the GAA he has always given great encouragement and support to the young people of the area.

Walter has also had major involvement in the GAA at county level. He was a selector with the successful Sligo minor team of 1968 which won the Connacht Championship and reached the All-Ireland Final. He was secretary of the County Minor Board for almost two decades through the 1970’s and 1980’s and Assistant-Secretary of the County Board for twenty five years from 1970 to 1994. He was a member of Connacht Council from 1995 to 2001.

The club is very grateful to Walter for his lifelong involvement and proud to have him as our esteemed Club President.
