Fab Findlay Fact: The origin of the name Leitrim

by FCCA | 1 Comments

FabFindlayFact We drive through Leitrim and along Leitrim Road but what is the origin of the name? Glenn Clark, President of the Gloucester Historical Society, says it dates back to 1883 when local residents petitioned for a post office, which was located on the site of the gas station until 1917. The area was originally known as Cowan’s but the name Cowansville was rejected because there was another post office with that name in Quebec. They chose Leitrim because David Cowan, who lived where the police station is today, was originally from County Leitrim in Ireland.

This fact was researched and submitted by Randy Ray, a Findlay Creek resident and co-author of nine books about Canada. For more trivia, please visit: www.triviaguys.com.

Spring is here and it’s time to clean up Findlay Creek! Put garbage where it belongs!

springcleanNow that the residue winter left behind has surfaced, the FCCA is asking all residents to clean up their front yard and areas near their homes.

Also, if anyone can spare a few hours and clean up the parks, and along Findlay Creek and Kelly Farm, we can provide bags and gloves. Please help keep our community neat and tidy, and safe.

Need a reminder as to what goes into your black box, blue box and green bin or what garbage DOESN’T go into your curbside garbage?

FabFindlayFactThe property immediately north of the Hope Cemetery and south of Leitrim Road was for many years owned by the Barrett family who continue to farm the land. Family patriarch Fred G. Barrett was mayor of Gloucester in the mid-1980s. His son Fred played for the NHL’s Minnesota North Stars and Los Angeles Kings and another son, John, skated with the Detroit Red Wings and Washington Capitals. The arena on Leitrim Road east of Bank Street is named after Fred Barrett, senior.
