Boyle GAA’s preparations continue for next weekend
Sean Daly Memorial Cup
Boyle LGFA hosted nine teams from six clubs at the Abbey Park today as part of the U12 Girls blitz in honour of the late Sean Daly, a founding member of the club. It was a pleasure to have Ger with us to present the cup and share some words of wisdom with the next generation.
Well done to all of the teams that participated – Kilglass / Kilmore, St Croans, St Ronan’s / St Michael’s, Shannon Gaels, Western Gaels. We saw some great displays of football and it is our hope that each player had a chance to develop a skill or learn something new over the course of the day.
The Semi-Finals saw St Croans meet Boyle and Shannon Gaels meet Kilglass / Kilmore – both of which went into extra time with great excitement from the sidelines. In the end, Kilglass / Kilmore met our girls in the final – the legs were tired and the rain was en route, but both teams fought with big hearts until the final whistle when Boyle were named the victors.
Huge thanks to all of our refs, volunteers, Boyle LGFA Committee and John Brennan for their help in coordinating the day, and special thanks to Ger Garvin for representing the Daly family.
That marks the end of the season for our U12 Girls and the Club wishes to thank all of the players, management and supporters for their dedication throughout the year. Team List: E. Adu Boahen, A. Brennan, S. Beirne, H. Commons, K. Conroy, S. Costello, C. Coyle, T. Coyle, A. Cregg, F. Fitzpatrick, K. Flanagan, E. Garvin, R. Kennedy, B. Kilroy, S. Lannon, A. Lyons, S. McGoldrick, R. McGowan, A. McKeon, A. Neary, O. Rooney, C. Sweeney and J. Wapor Apostle.

AROUND THE TOWN
The Club greatly appreciates the warmth and generosity that everyone in the town has shown so far – it’s incredible to see the streets painted maroon & white (thanks to our volunteers)! We love to see the creativity of everyone’s displays. Don’t forget to tag us / send us your parish pride photos on social media and we’ll share the best ones on our page.
Congratulations to Emer Sweeney on completing the Amsterdam Marathon on Sunday. Emer is very active in the Club and currently holds the position of Treasurer with Boyle LGFA as well as coaching in Boyle Camogie! We don’t know how she found the time to train alongside those duties!
Amazing scenes for Tourlestrane on Sunday as clubmen Fergal O’Donnell and Stephen Bohan led their men to their historic seven-in-a-row in the Sligo Senior Football Championship.
