Sat. 1am. The two key days of the Walk are Sat. and Sun. so all can go to Dublin are earnestly asked to make the effort and all who are in Dublin, and can lend a hand, for whatever period of time, on either day, are asked to do so.
The two big games this Sat. are; 1. the Ladies Junior 'A' Final v Western Gaels at Cootehall at 1.30 and 2. the very important Corrib Oil Senior League game which sees a rematch of Boyle v St. Dominick's in the Abbey Park at -note- 5.30. The minors have a challenge in the College Field v St. Croan's at 3(?)
8.45pm. Pictured above are the Boyle collectors and members of the Hever family outside Maynooth GAA Club's premises. Apart from the Boyle resident crew the picture above includes: Maynooth Club Secretary Hilary McCabe and the Hever Clan including Ronan and Adrian, Adrian's wife Cathy along with Paddy, Roisin, James, Clodagh and Sean Hever after refreshments in the clubhouse. (Thanks for that Ronan).

Fri. 6.45. I'd like to remind GAA people, who can, that the Anniversary Mass for Fergus Ahern takes place tomorrow Saturday at 11am. Fergus was instrumental in the donation of the Ahern Cup, in memory of Rory Ahern, for the U16 tournament.
Friday 6.15pm. I have just had a preliminary report from Aidan from Maynooth. The first thing he wishes to do is to thank Ronan and Adrian Hever and their wives Kathy and Michelle for their welcome and help in Maynooth. Also included in his thanks is the dynamic Club Secretary, Glaswegian Killary McCabe 'the hearbeat of the Maynooth Club'. Hillary proudly informed the Boyle contingent that the first 'Walk' from Maynooth to Dublin took place in the first days of the Easter Rising. Proposals are being exchanged regarding inter-club games and exchanges at under-age level. So today's collaboration could see a more long-lasting relationship emerge between the clubs. Aidan wished the Maynooth Club well with their 20 acre development of 6 pitches and state of the art facilities and he felt the Hever families could not have done more for them and it was a great boost coming towards he end of long, tiring but 'interesting' week. (It is what I would have expected from these Elphin St./Forest View gentlemen. So take a bow the hever families of Maynooth. T.C.) I have some more pics. which my pic. posting dept. hopefully will get to a bit later!
