This is a special week for our Cooney Motors sponsored U14 footballers as they will represent Boyle and Co Roscommon in the Féile National Football Tournament in Kerry, West Limerick and West Cork this coming weekend. This is a major honour for this talented group of players and their dedicated management team and we wish them every success. They will play 3 games in their group, two of them on Fridayevening (Coralstown-Kinnegad and Kanturk) and the other on Saturday morning (Kilshannig). All of them will be played in Kilshannig, Co Cork. No doubt there will be lots of vocal support for the boys. We request that Boyle or Co Roscommon “natives” living in Cork would come out to Kilshannig to support the lads.
