Below there are 3 posts as follows: Sun. 1.45/Sun. 6.30pm/Sun. 11pm.
It has been suggested that this blog will be the notice-board for the coming week and the ins and outs of the Walk. So I’ll do my best, if I get material, to facilitate that role. I hope to post at least three times per day. Circa 9am; 1.45 pm; and a review of that day circa 8 pm. Hopefully this will include useful information/tips from day to day.
The first notice:
Walkers and supporters are asked to attend at the Abbey Park on Monday morning (tomorrow) by 9.25am as Canon Gerry Hanly will inaugurate the walk with a blessing for success and the safety (which is paramount) of participants. So all WALKERS and SUPPORTERS PLEASE attend at 9.25. There will be no ish involved here. This is where serious starts.
The Walk will proceed through the town to the Crescent and back to the Carrick Road and East to Carrick-on-Shannon where they will be at approx. 1pm. Their day will conclude in Rooskey. The Captain for the day is Mark O’Connor with his team drawn from the Intermediate panel.
Sun. 6.30pm.
Boyle Junior Ladies "Green St Veterinery & Kennels"
sponsored team overcame
Shannon Gaels last Saturday to reach the Junior A Final. The opposition for
the final is Western Gaels and this game is fixed for Saturday 17 September
time and venue to be confirmed.
Boyle U14 girls had a good win V Padraig Pearses and are through to Division
1A semi final when they meet Shannon Gaels this Friday 16th in Croghan throw
in 6.45pm. Full details will be given at training.
Please support both teams in these games.
The Club wishes everyone involved in the Walk to Croker a SAFE TRIP.

Sun. 11.00 pm. per Martin Dolan. The Boyle GAA Club (Senior, Ladies and Minor) are currently participating in their historic "Walk to Croker" fundraising walk. The entourage departed from the Abbey Park on Monday morning, with a blessing from Canon Gerry Hanley. Stage one took the group from Boyle to Rooskey. Tuesday sees the walk arrive in Edgeworthstown. Mullingar will be the main fundraising location on Wednesday, while it will travel to Moyvalley on Thursday and on to Maynooth on Friday. The intrepid walkers will arrive in Dublin on Saturday afternoon and they will be augmented by maximum club members on Saturday and Sunday in the City. It is expected that club members will travel to the larger towns during the week and to Dublin at the weekend to assist in the fundraising. Details are available from the Club Secretary and the Walk Captains.

It was a mixed weekend on the playing fields. The U14s started what was hoped to be the first leg of a treble when they won the Garda Cup Final against Elphin in the Abbey park on Thursday last. The U16s went down in the U16 Division 1 County Final when they lost narowly to Clan na Gael in a game that never reached any great heights on a fine new Strokestown pitch. Thanks to the lads and the management who have given us an enjoyable year and hopefully they will show their true form in the upcoming league final. Congratulations to the Clan lads.

Our woes continued in Strokestown on Saturday when the McGovern Directional Drilling team lost narrowly to a St Dominics, who were the better side on the day,in the Intermediate Championship semi final. The Boyle lads will meet St Dominics again in the O'Rourke Cup in Boyle on Saturday next at 5.30pm. The Senior Club extends its congratulations to the Boyle Ladies who had more luck at the weekend when they qualified for the County Final on Saturday and they are wished every success in the County Final against Western Gaels on Saturday next. Thanks is extended to Paul Purcell who looked after the Abbey Park on Saturday while the rest of the Club were away in Strokestown and Ballinameen.

Boyle Ladies Club;
The Junior Ladies had a good win over neighbours Shannon Gaels in the Junior A County Semi Final in Ballinameen on Saturday evening last in Ballinameen. They will be in action again on this Saturday in the County Final against Western Gaels at a time and venue to be confirmed. Full support is requested for this important fixture. It is not the only important upcoming fixture as the U14 girls had a good win over Padraig Pearses in the Division 1A semi final last week and they are through to the County Final when they will also meet Shannon Gaels in Croghan on this Friday evening 16th at 6.45pm. Support is again requested for this important event. Many Ladies Club members will be participating in the "Walk to Croker". It is hoped that members will travel to the major towns and to Dublin at the weekend to assist the collectors and the walkers,
