Mon. 1.50 pm. Welll Done To All INVOLVED IN THE MAJOR ‘WALK’ (AD)VENTURE. We will be reviewing the project anon and will post a list of the many people to be thanked here. For the moment I post Martin Dolan’s post.

The Club has successfully accomplished its historic "Walk to Croker" project. After six long days of walking and fundraising, the Club members arrived in Dublin on Saturday afternoon last and carried out an intensive bucket collection mission around the City Centre and Croke Park area until after the conclusion of the All Ireland Final on Sunday. The proceeds have not yet been tallied but it is anticipated that they will help with the financing of the Club in the short-term without having to burden the local community. The Club extends a sincere "thank you" to the many members of the three sections i.e. the Senior, the Minor and Ladies Club who participated in the walking and the fundraising and who gave unselfishly of their time. Thanks is also extended to the many others from within the community and in the various locations along the route who participated so actively in the project, and to the many who provided for the practicalities of the venture such as collection buckets, drinks and fruit for the walkers, those who sponsored the vehicle and those who sponsored the fuel. All will be acknowledged in the coming weeks.

Lotto: The following were the winners of €25 each in the most recent Club Lotto draw which was held in the Abbey Bar;Peter Wynne, Michael Costello, Karl Keenan, Peggy Feely, Joe Simon, Mary Rushe, Mary and Michael Brennan, John Nevin and Joe McDermott. The house prize was won by Mary Moran.This weeks draw will be held in The Patrick's Well on Saturday night next with Team D in charge. As the jackpot was not won last week it will stand at €4,400 on this weekend.

The McGovern Directional Drilling senior team picked up two valuable O'Rourke Cup points when they overcame St Dominic’s in the Abbey Park on Saturday evening last. They will meet Kilmore in the last round of the O'Rourke Cup on this Saturday at 5.30pm in the Abbey Park. Support is requested for this important fixture.

The National Automation Limited minors will face Clan na Gael in the Division 1 County Semi Final in Ballyforan on this Friday evening (under lights) at 8.30pm. Support is also requested for this major fixture.

The Cooney Motors/ Cooneys Centra junior team will play Castlerea St Kevins in the Abbey Park on Sunday next at 1.30pm in the Tansey Cup. The Club extends its sympathy to the Keenehan families, Boyle and Galway and to the relatives of the late Peter Burke, Lucan and formerly of Lahausk, Strokestown.
Boyle Ladies Club;
The Ladies lost to a stronger Western Gaels team in the Junior A County Final which was played in Cootehall on Saturday last. The girls will have an opportunity to return to winning ways when they play the Junior League County Final on circa 1st October. The Club wishes Western Gaels every success in their forthcoming Connacht Championship.
