2pm. Sorry for being a bit late with this.
The competitive season got underway with mixed fortunes at the weekend for Boyle's junior and minor footballers.
The National Automation Limited minors lost to Roscommon Gaels in Lisnamult on Friday night on a scoreline of 2.8 to 2.6 in the Division 1 League. It was a very competitive game between two good sides. They are scheduled to play Clan na Gael in Johnstown on Monday 19th January 1pm in their next outing in this competition.
The Cooney Motors/Cooney's Centra juniors commenced their Tansey Cup campaign with a comprehensive win over St Joseph's, Kilteevan, in the Abbey Park on Sunday morning. Their next outing is against Michael Glaveys on Sunday next in the Abbey Park at 4pm. Thanks to our ground staff of Martin, Michael and the two Johns for having pitch in readiness for Sunday's game.
Under 8 training commences in the Sports Complex on Monday at 6pm and it will continue on each Monday thereafter at this time.

There will be a meeting of the Club on Thursday at 8.30 pm to make further arrangements for our rorthcoming fundraising draw. The prizes for the draw will include a bumper trailer-load of top class firewood, a supply of heating oil and a cash prize of €100. Thanks to all the volunteers who collected and cut and split the timber and filled the trailer with the firewood on Saturday last. The trailer will be on display at the St Patrick's Day Parade in Boyle. My promptings here for someone to take on the task of having the club meaningfully represented in the St. Patrick’s Day parade does not seem to have been taken up. C’est la vie.
Roscommon got back on track yesterday at Hyde Park with a comprehensive win over a poor Antrim side. Indeed Roscommon should have doubled their score and left result ‘done and dusted’ long before the end. Seanie Purcell did very well again though I got afraid for him after him taking a good rattle near the end of the first half. My ‘Man of the Match’ was Michael Finneran who is showing considerable gym work strength in breaking through tackles. Niall Kilroy from Tremane/ Fuerty had a very impressive debut though goalie Claffey is not showing the assurance of former years, this season. Next up is the long tough trip to Wexford on Sunday the 18th.
The Club extends its sympathy to the Jackson family, Abbey Heights on the death of Mr. Mark Jackson..
