Update 5th October

There was a large attendance at the Boyle GAA Clubs (Male and Female clubs) “Get Active Today” fitness and wellbeing launch in King House on Friday evening last. The launch was performed by Professor Niall Moyna of DCU who delivered a most interesting and thought-provoking lecture on the importance of exercise and fitness for all age groups. He complimented the Clubs on the initiative and he implored people of all age categories and levels of fitness to participate.

Kathleen Hanmore outlined the 7 week programme of activities to the gathering.

Boyle GAA's "Get Active Today" this week...
1: Monday 5th 7.30pm: Keep Fit Session in St Joseph’s BNS Gym
2: Tuesday 6th 7.30pm: Town Walk/jog from Kelly's Londis.
3: Tues/Thurs 5th/7th: 7am Dawn walks/jogs of 3k and 5k
All walks/jogs will commence at Kelly’s Londis, the Crescent.

There will be a presentation on healthy eating and nutrition in the GAA Clubroom on Thursday at 7.30pm.

There will be Keep Fit Sessions  on Saturday at 10am in the Sports Complex and again in St Joseph’s BNS Gym on Monday week 12th.

Details of the entire programme are available on the Club website and Facebook page. Registration can be made before any of the event this week. We encourage the entire community to become involved and participants from neighbouring parishes and clubs are very welcome. 

A weakened McGovern Directional Drilling senior team lost to Roscommon Gaels in the O’Rourke Cup Semi Final in Abbey Park on Saturday. This brings the curtain down on what has been an excellent season-having finished second in the league section of the O’Rourke Cup (Div 1 League) and having reached the quarter final of the Senior Championship and thus guaranteeing senior status for at least the next two years. This is a young panel and it is hoped that they will build on progress made this year. Thanks to the entire panel and to Michael Jordan and his excellent management team.

The Cooney Motors/Cooney’s Centra Juniors will play Michael Glaveys in the Division 5 League Semi Final in Ballinlough on Saturday at 5pm. Support will be appreciated.
The U14s will commence their Garda Cup campaign very shortly. The National Automation Limited U20s/U21s will also shortly be in action.

The Club extends its best wishes to the proposed new County Senior Management team, and especially to its Boyle connections, Club Coaching Officer Stephen Bohan, former player David Casey and Boyle resident Fergal O’Donnell.
