Thurs. 9.15pm: The jerseys in question below have surfaced. All is sorted, next business. I just saw a very impressive performance by the under 14 side as they easily overcame St. Dominick's. There are many fine players on this side. I only got the end of the U12s' game last evening as they were unlucky to lose out to a late St. Brigid's rally. There were a number of fine performances here also.
Best wishes to Darren O'Connor who has arrived in New York. Darren played a lot of good football for Boyle this year and indeed for many years. Hopfully we'll keep the fire lit until the business end of things in the Autumn when you return. Enjoy Gaelic Park. I did when it was a dust bowl but great fun in the environs!
Best of luck and support for Boyle GAA stalwart Dessie McLoughlin who is in training to climb Mt. Blanc in his Alzheimers fund-raising campaign. He deserves all our support as he himself has always supported so many causes.
Prospective Oz football travellers remember Ciaran Conlon's offer for Brisbane.
Sin e for now.
Wed. 11am: I am disappointed that there has been no response to my search for a set of Boyle jerseys from last year with the David O'Connor auctioneers logo on them. They were, I'm told, used at under 16 level. So have another look in the garage or wherever, please! The success rate of this col. in such matters is pretty good so let's keep thinking positive sorta!
9.30:(By Tony Conboy/Martin Dolan).I've just had an interesting communication from Ciaran Conlon in Brisbane. He is very involved with a GAA football club there by the name of John Mitchell's. (I hadn't heard John had emigrated!). Ciaran would be interested in hearing from any footballers who envisage being in Brisbane, not just from Boyle club. So if anyone wants Ciaran's contact details give me a bell. He says they might also be able to help in a job search for such players.
Lotto: The following were €20 winners at the most recent Club Lotto draw which was held in the Moving Stairs recently;- Brian and Helen Nerney, Joseph McDermott, Joe Tormey, Paul and Anita Kearney, Canon Gerry Hanley, Monica Daly, Morgan Mulhern, John Gallagher, Mary Moran and Paul Kelly (Ballinameen). The numbers drawn were; 13/14/16/19. The house prize was won by Kevin Harrington. The jackpot was not won. It will stand at €4,200 for this week's draw which will be held in An Craoibhín on this Saturday night. Team E will be in charge.
The U14s lost in Kiltoom to a strong St Brigids team last Thursday. They will have St Dominics in the Abbey Park on this Thursday at 7pm.
The U12s will host St Brigids on this Wednesday at 7pm in the Abbey park.
The Feelystone junior team had a good win over Kilbride in Boyle in the Tansey Cup on Wednesday last. This win leaves them in a position to qualify for the play-offs if they can win their remaining games. Neither they nor the McGovern Directional Drilling senior team have any games this weekend as the Championship gets under way and Boyle have a bye in the first round.
Well done to Fergal, Stephen, Joe, and Sean and the Roscommon team on getting a good result in Ruislip. This sets up the local derby with Leitrim in three weeks time at Hyde Park. Well done also to the County U15 Development Squad which included Boyle players and management who also had a successful weekend in London.
Thanks to Kathleen Hanmore, Mary Smith and Mary Clifford who catered for a multitude in the Clubroom following the special Mass on Wednesday last.
