INTERCLUBS – : Well done to Niall Kearney’s Connacht Shield team who chalked up another win, this time against Swinford Golf Club. Boyle had 3 games at home and 2 away, but were under pressure when they lost one of the home games. Thankfully Shane O’Dowd and Cillian Doyle hit a good run of form playing in Swinford and claimed a win in an away game to cancel the home loss. Boyle went on to win 2 more games at home in Boyle to seal the overall win, thus progressing to the next round of the Connacht Shield tournament.
