Boyle GAA club news
The “Who Wants to be a Thousandaire” show which was hosted by Boyle GAA Clubs (Male and female clubs) on Saturday in St Joseph’s Hall, was an outstanding success. An audience of almost a full house was treated to nine rounds of enthralling quiz competition when each of the nine contestants who were drawn at random from the audience, fought valiantly to win the magic €1,000. Unfortunately the top prize proved elusive, with some of the contestants getting near the figure, but their eagerness to gamble proved to be their undoing. The contestants who faced quizmaster Ollie Turner were Noel Collins (on behalf of Roscommon GAA Health and Wellbeing Initiative), Brian Furey,Ray Hannon, Brian Supple, Donna O’Connor, Marc O’Connor, Eugene Sheerin, Carmel Beirne and Sarah Keenehan. Thanks to our nine major sponsors, our 135 advertisers , the many persons and businesses who provided spot prizes and donations. The Clubs urge all Club members to support the businesses that supported the event. Thanks also to the fantastic audience and to those who purchased tickets but who couldn’t attend. Thanks also to the various media outlets for the excellent public given to the event. The Clubs are also very grateful to Pallas Marketing Limited who produced the show with tremendous professionalism and panache. Thanks is also extended to the project leaders and their assistants and the many club members who helped with hall preparation, stewarding on the night and in the tidy up afterwards.
It was a disappointing Sunday for the National Automation Limited U21s who suffered a five point defeat to Clann na Gael in the Division 1 County Semi Final in Knockcroghery. The Club wishes to acknowledge the commitment of the entire panel throughout the season and thanks is extended to Manager Jonathan Conroy and his assistants for their work with the lads. The Club (male clubs) AGM will be held in the Clubroom on Saturday evening next at 5pm. Please note the earlier starting time, to enable attendance at the County History launch in Roscommon later that evening. All Club members and players and all who are interested in the continuing development of Gaelic games in Boyle Parish are asked to attend the AGM.
