Boyle GAA weekly news update
There was no winner of this weeks club lotto jackpot of €6,800. The numbers drawn were 2, 5, 26 & 28. €20 winners were Luke Taheny, Emer Sweeney and Mickey Gaffney. Next weeks draw will take place in Dodds Bar.
It was a disappointing end to a quite successful year over all for this years Junior team. Having secured promotion to Division 4 league they faced St. Josephs in the final on Saturday. Boyle had a big squad to pick from and started with a strong team. Ill discipline and the conceding of too many goals left the job all to hard to the well coached defensive side of St. Josephs. Unfortunately there was to be no silverware collected on this occasion. Thanks to Stephen, Kevin and Micheal for there work and dedication throughout the year.
Many thanks to the Club members who assisted with parking , catering , preparation of pitch, scoreboard, lotto sales and clean up on Saturday also.
Elsewhere, the new lotto sales teams rota is being compiled and will come into operation on the 3rd of November. The lotto is the Clubs primary source of income. It would be great to get some new sellers. The time involved is two hours every thirteen weeks. And the night itself is very sociable and enjoyable. So if you would like to get involved please contact James O Boyle o086 8526329.
Date for your diary. Club AGM on Sunday the 9th of December at 7pm
