The Well & M Kerins Intermediate Ladies - Connacht Quarter Final

It was a tough contest against St Mary’s (Sligo) in miserable conditions on Saturday. Buckets of grit, determination, and a lot of heart were poured onto the field by our Ladies to ensure that they would close the game in the lead. 


Despite the strong winds we started out strong with a goal from H Kerins. Our opponents were quick to retaliate low and hard at the far end. Soon after, a lovely lofty chance for A Feely was fisted into the back of the net by M McKeon - and that was just the first 10 minutes! As the rain began to trickle, so too did the scores for St Mary’s, at the break our counterparts led 3.02 - 2.02.


There was a slow start to the second half, but after a goal chance was disallowed, our Ladies knew they needed to dig deep to get this game across the line. Turnovers partnered with high levels of possession amongst our forwards began to pay off towards the turning point of the second half - and then the free's began to flow. We were all square at 27mins, and as the sideline held their breath entering injury time, another point each for A Feely and M Ward sealed the deal. 


Full time score in Kent Park:

Boyle - 2.09

St Mary’s - 3.04

Team List: S Moran, N Beirne, I King, S Kerins, S Keenahan (C), R Cox, S Wynne, R Wynne, C Cregg, M McKeon (1.00), M Ward (0.02), G Flanagan, N Regan, A Feely (0.06 - 5f), H Kerins (1.01). Substitution: A Roddy on for M McKeon. With: R Johnson, K Harrington, M Brogan, C Byrne, K Roddy, E Scally, S Meehan, A O Dowd, C O Dowd, C Reilly, L Downes, C MacDermott, A Kiernan, A Kennedy. Management: Vinny Flanagan, Michael Kerins, Pat Leonard, Damien Regan.

McGovern Civils Senior Men

Gut-wrenching finish for our lads as we missed out with the last kick of the game. Well done to Strokestown, it was a ferocious battle.

Sending best wishes to Cian McKeon, and Paddy Brogan who were injured in the first half, we’ll all be thinking of you and hope for a speedy recovery.

Sean Daly Memorial Cup

Boyle LGFA hosted nine teams from six clubs at the Abbey Park today as part of the U12 Girls blitz in honour of the late Sean Daly, a founding member of the club. It was a pleasure to have Ger with us to present the cup and share some words of wisdom with the next generation. 

Well done to all of the teams that participated - Kilglass / Kilmore, St Croans, St Ronan’s / St Michael’s, Shannon Gaels, Western Gaels. We saw some great displays of football and it is our hope that each player had a chance to develop a skill or learn something new over the course of the day. 

The Semi-Finals saw St Croans meet Boyle and Shannon Gaels meet Kilglass / Kilmore - both of which went into extra time with great excitement from the sidelines. In the end, Kilglass / Kilmore met our girls in the final - the legs were tired and the rain was en route, but both teams fought with big hearts until the final whistle when Boyle were named the victors. 

Huge thanks to all of our refs, volunteers, Boyle LGFA Committee and John Brennan for their help in coordinating the day, and special thanks to Ger Garvin for representing the Daly family.
