Our McGovern Directional Drilling Seniors suffered an agonising 3 point defeat to Padraig Pearses in the 3rd round of the Hodson Bay Hotel Senior Football Championship at wet and windy Tulsk on Sunday. The lads went in leading by 3 points at half time despite having played against the wind. Pearses upped their game in the second half, soring 2 further goals, to run out 3 point winners. Boyle will have a chance to redeem themselves on Sunday next when they play their 4th round Senior Championship game against Roscommon Gaels in the first game of a double header in Elphin at 4pm. We again appeal to our loyal supporters to come along again for this vital game in what is proving to be a close group.

The Boyle Ladies lost to a stronger Padraig Pearses in the Championship on Tuesday last. A slow first half start left themwith too much to do despite an encouraging second half.
The Club extends sympathy to our Club President Barry Feely, and to the extended Feely family on the death of Barry’s sister in law Charlotte in Bagenalstown, Co. Carlow.
