Mon. 8.30pm. The McGovern Directional Drilling team will begin their Intermediate Championship against Eire Og in the Abbey Park on this Saturday evening at 7pm (not Sunday as previously stated) The North Junior B championship game versus St Ronans is on Sunday in Ballyfarnon at 2.30pm.
Congratulations to the Roscommon U 16 team who won the Ted Webb Cup defeating Sligo today Monday and the Boyle reps. on the team Tadgh McKenna, Enda Smith, Brian Furey and Jason McDermott. It is great to have reps. here as on the minor team.

Good luck to Shannon Gaels, who officially open their new grounds in what has been traditionally known as ‘the Bull field’ or the Showground’s’ behind Woco, Carrick-on-Shannon. This will take place at 2.30 on this August Bank Holiday Monday so it would be appropriate if some Boyle GAA people could be present at the event as I know John Heslin and co. were at Boyle on May 1st.

Boyle U14s’ lost the League Division 1 Semi-Final during the week to a stronger Padraig Pearses outfit. Good luck to Pearses in the Final.
The U16s’ have two Division 1 Championship games scheduled-they will travel to Strokestown on Friday evening next to take on the home team while they will entertain Castlerea in the Abbey Park on Monday next. Both games are fixed for 7.30pm.
The minors will have Division 1 Championship action on this Tuesday evening when they will play Padraig Pearses in Woodmount at 7.45pm.
The McGovern Directional Drilling team will, at last, commence their Intermediate Championship campaign when they will take on Eire Og in the Abbey Park on Sunday next at 2pm.
All Cub members are asked to assemble in the Park on this Wednesday and Thursday evenings armed with spades, clippers etc to do a tidy up of the grounds in preparation for Sunday's Championship game.
All team managers, players and officials are asked to ensure that the last person out of the Abbey Park after training sessions or games closes the gate securely.
The Club extends its thanks to the very many who have supported the County Board Draw. I am led to believe the Draw will take place at Roscommon Races on Tuesday evening the 3rd. So if you go there look out for it. It is hoped that as a result some of our purchasers may be a little richer!
A well deserved "thank you" to Fergal and his management and his gallant panel of players who have given us a memorable summer. The dream lived until shortly after half time. There was great Roscommon support at Croke Park on Sunday. There is no doubt that the potential is there for ultimate success in the coming years. Thanks to Liam Clifford who erected the Club's "good luck to the Rossies" sign on a bridge on the N4 at Mullingar. The results, with the exception of Roscommon’s of course, really put a new blas on the All-Ireland semi-finals with Dublin v Cork and Kildare v Down. I really hope Kildare go all the way. They were really impressive v Meath in the second half. The ladies P.R. dept. is quiet.
Go raibh maith agaibh,
