This summer’s FAI Summer Soccer Camp will take place in Celtic Park, Sligo Road, Boyle from August 8th to 12th. The camps cater for players of all abilities and participants are grouped according to ability and age to ensure that everyone gets the most out of being on a FAI Summer Soccer School. Camps run from 10.30am – 3pm from Monday to Friday. Beginners will learn the fundamental football skills needed to be a player and receive a fun and dynamic introduction to playing the beautiful game. More seasoned players will focus on more technical and skill-specific training and everyone will come together in the afternoon to participate in mini-leagues and small-sided games. The coaching programme for the week is fully aligned to our Player Development Plan and offers young players the opportunity to maximise their learning and development in a fun and safe environment whilst doing what every young football loves to do – SCORE GOALS!

The tradition of the Summer Show in Boyle has been revived in recent years with great success. There are lots of new events to experience – Pony Jumping, All Ireland Championship Qualifier Dog show, Donkey Derby and much more! Delighted to announce that the Boyle Horse and Summer Show have moved to its new location at the Boyle GAA Training Grounds (not Abbey Park), located in The Warren, the town side of Drumderrig Nursing Home. We hope that this site will become the home of The Show for many years to come. The location is ideally situated close to the town, on level ground and sheltered from the elements. We are delighted to host a Mounted Games Association of Ireland competition, their first venture into the North West – these competitive games are thrilling to watch and add to the enjoyment of the day. Mr. Roger Prager of the Lough Arrow Estate has kindly re-gifted the Lough Arrow Cup to the Show, the winner of the 1.3m SJI affiliated competition will be presented with a replica of the cup, but the original will be displayed on the day. With all the usual attractions and over 40 stalls we hope to see the Boyle Show grow into the popular community event it should be.
Congratulations to Liam McKeon, Abbey Community College, winner of the poster campaign, Anna McGrath , Grange School, winner of the front cover of the Summer Show Program, and Brona Mulrennan, Scoil na nAingeal Naofa, Boyle whose drawing will be displayed on the back cover of the program.
