The Cooney Motors/ Cooney’s Centra Juniors had a convincing win over Kilglass Gaels in the Junior B Championship in a wet Kilglass on Wednesday evening last. They were given a walkover from Padraig Pearses in the next round of the competition. They are awaiting news of their next involvement in this competition.
The McGovern Directional Drilling Seniors lost narrowly to Castlerea St Kevins in the County Senior Championship Play-off in Strokestown on Sunday. It was a game that could have gone either way. Boyle Club wishes the Castlerea lads the best of luck in the remainder of the Championship. Although Boyle has bowed out of the Senior Championship, the targets set at the start of the season–to maintain senior status in both league and championship, have been achieved, and it is the ambition to build on this foundation in 2015.
There will be an important meeting of the Senior Club on this Tuesday at 9pm in the Club Room.
Ticket sales for the Fuel Draw will be drawing to a close in the coming week and those who have cards are asked to return completed cards and money to Treasurer Mary Smith. Those wishing to purchase tickets may do so by contacting any Club officer.
