The Lynch Veterinary Intermediate Ladies suffered an agonising one point defeat to Western Gaels in the Intermediate Championship Semi Final in the Abbey Park on Saturday. The Boyle girls got off to a great start with two goals in the first half. They looked in command at half time. However, Western Gaels dominated the first twenty minutes of the second half to take a seven point lead. To the credit of the Boyle girls, they clawed their way back into the game and reduced the deficit to one point and they were in attack when the final whistle sounded. Boyle will play Shannon Gaels in the Shield Final on a date to be determined. Thanks to all who helped on the occasion and to the many Boyle supporters who came to cheer on the girls. Best wishes to Western Gaels in the County Final. Congratulations to Boyle Ladies player Mairéad King and Colm Sheerin who got married on Friday last.
