Sunday 9.30am.
1. Boyle GAA Meeting:
There will be a meeting on Monday night at 8.30 regarding the County Board €100 Draw. It is imperative that everyone does their bit in respect of this draw as it is the last one of its kind for the County Board.
2.Boyle 'C' Company, 56th Infantry Battalion of the Reserve Defence Forces has arr nged a special Mass to pray for the recovery to good health of Lieutenant General Dermot Earley, Chief of Staff of the Irish Armed Forces. General Earley began his army career in the R.D.F. then the F.C.A. in the mid sixties. The Mass takes place in St Joseph's Church, Boyle on Wednesday evening, May 26th, at 8pm. Boyle GAA Club are also associated with the Mass and cordially invites attendees to light refreshments, in the new Clubrooms, in the Abbey Park, immediately afterwards.
2. The County Board Annual GAA €100 Draw for the finacing of the County teams et al is now on the move. Boyle Club are obliged to sell 150 tickets or be levied the deficit. This is the last of these draws. Clubs of course have real issues in funding themselves, it takes around 50 thousand approx. a year to run a club. Boyle will have ongoing debt repayments for the new dressing rooms. Ireland funding Greece comes to mind a little. Anyway this draw has to be attacked for this year so we are asking all people connected with Boyle to make sure that if they are willing to buy a ticket -and we hope they are- that the ticket is bought from a Boyle GAA source for purposes of counting in their quota. Also it is important to get the brunt of the tickets sold much sooner than later so tie in your potential buyers as early as possible, in the next week or so preferably. We need everybody on board for this effort. If anyone from a distance is interested they can contact me (T.C.) 086 816 33 99 or email
