Monday 1.40 am. Boyle U16s get their Division 1 League campaign under way on Saturday next when they take on St Dominic’s in the Abbey Park at 4pm.
The National Automation Limited minors are in action under lights on Monday night Feb. 27th in Johnstown against Clan na Gael in their opening Division 1 League game of the season.
The U14s have commenced training and this will continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7pm to 8pm. New players are welcome.
The McGovern Directional Drilling Intermediate team will commence their O'Gara Cup campaign against St Dominic’s on Saturday next in Knockcroghery at 3.30pm.
There will be an important Club meeting on this Wednesday at 8.30pm.
All Club members are encouraged to go along and donate blood at the Mobile Blood Transfusion Service when they visit St Joseph's Hall on the 7th of March.
Club jackets may be ordered from Chairperson Aidan Lavin at 087 2677865.
The Club needs volunteers to fill vacancies on some of the Club Lotto teams. It only involves a once in every ten weeks committment. Names should be given to Aidan Lavin. Members should remember that the Lotto is the lifeblood of the club so it is vital that it is maximised.
Congratulations to DCU and especially the Roscommon contingent of Neil Collins, David Keenan, Cathal Cregg and our own Donal Smith on winning the Sigerson Cup at the weekend. Congrats also to Paddy Nangle who was a member of the great 1962 Sigerson Cup winning U.C.G. team which provided the backbone of the famous Galway three-in-a-row team of the sixties. Paddy and the 1962 team were guests at a Sigerson dinner on Friday night. I wonder how many Sigerson winners played with and have been associated with Boyle. Donal Smith is the latest obviously. Tom Ryan, John Kelly are the other two who spring to mind. I seem to remember Niall O’Donohoe playing with Sligo I.T. but I don’t think he won a Sigerson medal. I ask these questions here to fill out the record base but the responses are sparse.
Good luck to Seanie and the Roscommon seniors in next Sunday's League game versus Longford.
The sympathy of the Club is extended to the Garvin family on the death of their aunt Beatrice Toolan.
Regards to the Diaspora. I see two Canadian provinces recruiting actively in Dublin this week for workers especially from the construction sector.
Boyle Ladies Club;
Registration for U10s, U12s and U14s will be held in the Clubroom on this Wednesday from 6pm to 8pm. It is essential that all players are fully registered as otherwise they cannot be allowed to play. Registration fee is €40 per person and €70 where there are two members from the same family.The Ladies Club extends its congratulations to playing member Catriona Leonard and to Neil on the birth of their baby daughter.
