Boyle GAA club weekly update
Our senior team fell short in their match v Western Gaels. Thank all the volunteers who ensured that all fixtures were completed on Sunday for all 4 matches.
Congratulations also to Tadgh Lowe who won the Kerry player of the year in New York, Tadgh should also feature in the N.Y.team playing Leitrim in two week’s time.
The Club’s second annual Social Initiative day out was once again a great success. The Club Rossie bus, driven by our own Damien Regan, brought 46 passengers to visit the Titanic Experience in Belfast on Friday last. All enjoyed this wonderful historical and educational exhibition which had the added attraction of being able to inspect the nearby SS Nomadic. Thanks to all who participated, to Martin and Barry for organising the event, to Kathleen and James for providing refreshments before departure and Hannah for provision of scones which sustained us on our return journey. Thanks especially to Damien for taking a day off work to drive the bus. Thoughts are already turning to choosing a destination for next year’s trip!
Many thanks to Club historian Tony Conboy for adding three more frames to the already impressive pictorial record of the Clubs history which graces the walls of the Clubrooms. The new frames celebrate the achievements of Sean Young , Micheal O Callaghan and stars of the 80s. Tony Murphy is also to be complimented on designing the pictorial presentations. Thanks to Pat Goldrick for mounting the frames.
