Boyle GAA club weekly update
Our McGovern Directional Drilling sponsored Senior team exited the Hodson Bay Hotel Roscommon GAA Senior Football Championship on Sunday at Hyde Park, following their semi final defeat to St. Brigids on a scoreline of 2.15 to 2.09. Unfortunately the lads were unable to get to the pitch of the game for any sustained period of time, and St. Brigids were always in a position to keep them at arms length. Thank you to players and management for their work throughout what was a different and difficult year. Please see local media for match report, team details below:
Team: R. Kearney, Killian Cox, C. Flanagan, Ciaran Beirne, E. McGrath, S. Purcell, T. McKenna (0-1), Roch Hanmore, Enda Smith (1-0), Tadgh Lowe, D. Smith (0-4, 0-3 frees), Kieran Cox, M. O’Donohoe (0-1), C. McKeon (0-2), C. Feely (0-1) with J. Moran for Kieran Cox 38 min, Marc O’Connor for T. Lowe 45 min, C. Goldrick (1-0) for Mark O’Donohoe 49 min and M. Hanmore for Ciaran Beirne 53 min.
Our Cooney Motors/Cooney Centra sponsored Junior A team lost to St. Ronans in their final group game on Saturday evening in the Abbey park on a scoreline of 6.14 to 2.08. The challenge of playing a more experienced and well drilled first team was too much for our lads but they were very much in the game in the 1st half and were unfortunately unable to convert their possession in to scores. St. Ronans proved too strong in the 2nd half but our lads played till the end with an excellent score from Niall Brennan the highlight.
They now play Castlerea in the Junior A relegation playoff on Saturday at 6 in Strokestown.

The Boyle Intermediate Ladies had a great win over St Dominics in the county semifinal in Boyle on Sunday on a scoreline of 3.11 to 1.11. This was a tight encounter and Boyle created some excellent goal chances in the 1st half and were unfortunate not to score. However they made no mistake in converting the chances in the 2nd half and ran out deserving winners. Well done Ladies and best of luck in the County Final v St. Brigids which will be played on Saturday 19th September, time and venue tbc.
Our U12 girls play Northern Harps in the County Final next Sunday evening at 5pm in the Abbey Park. Best of luck to the girls and management.
