Background: As our club activities are currently
suspended, Boyle GAA decided to launch a fundraising campaign in aid of the
local Brothers of Charity, to get people moving and to raise funds for a local
worthwhile cause. Our aim was to ask people to firstly donate to the gofundme
and thereafter track the distance of any walk/run made during the month of May.
You only need to donate once. Jackie Valentine is the club coordinator, and the
distance walked/run is sent to her by text (086 320 0915). The distance will
not be added to the total unless at least one donation to the gofundme page is
made. Our target was to run/walk 1900km collectively in May.
Update: Boyle GAA has easily
surpassed the target and as of the 22nd May we have exercised for a total
of 3,338 km, raising €3,349.00 for the Brothers of Charity! Thanks so much to
everyone who has donated so far for what is a very worthwhile cause. Let's keep
this great work up and please continue to spread the word about the fundraising
challenge. It’s not to late to join in, as we've decided to set two
further targets to achieve. Let's try to get to 4,000 km collectively in the
month of May and raise €4,000 for the Brothers of Charity!
On Sunday night Boyle GAA held a draw online for the annual lotto
members which presided over by two of our club senior players - Cian McKeon
and Conor Flanagan. The two prizes of €150 each were won by Stephen Bohan and
Ann Roddy. Well done to both and thanks again to our annual lotto members.
Boyle GAA would like to express condolences to Liam Kerins on the
recent passing of his sister Mary Carew from Ballymote. May she rest in peace.
