Careers Advisory Evening at Boyle GAA Club, (Friday November 9th at 8.30 pm in the club house and all welcome).
Boyle GAA are planning a Careers Evening on Friday 9th November at 8.30pm in the GAA club house. This is a new initiative offering our young players and their friends in the Community an opportunity to hear about College life and apprenticeships and the trials and tribulations of further education and training.

Our own locals who have tread the paths will be there to answer any questions, and we hope the evening will inform, inspire and give the opportunity to young people to hear more about further education and training-the varied routes /colleges chosen /challenges / and career options that are available to them.

Boyle GAA invite all 15-18 year olds and their parents (if they wish) to come along and hear the short presentations from a variety of professional and skilled young people who have chosen different career paths.

The unknown for many can bring excitement, but for others fear, thus hearing about college, apprenticeships and opportunities from those that have pursued these routes, will encourage our young people to aspire to achieve their full potential in their chosen career/interests.

With a very successfull season so far, by reaching the semi final of this years Feile  and having gone through the Championship winning all  league games. The lads will not take their opposition likely having already gone head to head with Roscommon Gaels on couple occasion and losing out in the Garda Cup semi final to Michaels Galveys/Eir Og recently .

On the pitch;
The Cooney Motors/ Cooney’s Centra sponsored Junior Team defeated St. Joseph’s in the league on Friday last.
In what was a tough, physical game, the home side pulled away in the final quarter.
The first half was full of chances for both sides, however, both sides failed to opportunities presented to them.
Boyle’s scores came from Lochlainn Conboy, David Kelly, Niall O’Donoghue and Shane Battles to have Steve Tonra’s men four points to the good at the interval.
After a couple of scores from both sides, it was the visitors who scored the game’s first goal after forty-five minutes.
However, this spurred on the home side. The impressive Reece Conroy set up his teammates on a couple of occasions to further the margin.
O’Donoghue and Conboy kept finding their range and substitutes Seamus Kane and Colin Goldrick both found the back of the net, to put the result beyond reasonable doubt.
Full Time: Boyle 2:19, St. Joseph’s 1-08.
Boyle Team: (13 aside)- D. McGovern, C. McGee, A. Simon, J. Moran, C. Brennan, R. Conroy, T. Halligan, C. Flanagan, D. Kelly, R. Hannon, S. Battles, L. Conboy, N. O’ Donoghue.
With: J. McCrann, S. Kane, C. Goldrick, C. Tivnan, J. Bolger, A. Sharkey.

Update 2nd July

The Cooney motors sponsored Junior team continued their winning ways in Championship when they travelled to Tulsk on a warm Friday evening. Boyle had a massive panel once again but Tulsk could only field 13 players so Boyle had to go like wise. Boyle had plenty of opportunities in the first half but poor shot selection at times left them winning at half time 1.8 to 7. Of course fitness and a string bench was always going to be a big factor in this game and the flood gates opened up in the second half when Boyle run out comfortable winners at 1.12 to 6.18. Top scorer on the day was L Conboy with 1.7 while S Battles got 2 goals and a goal each by C Deery, K Morris and Marc O Connor. Boyles team on the was was as follows. J McCrann, A Simon, C Horan, J Moran, Mark O Connor, R Conroy, T Halligan, J Suffin, S Battles, Marc O Connor, J Boulger, L Conboy and D Kelly.

Update May 21st

Boyle`s eagerly anticipated La na  gClub was hosted on Sunday past. This turned out to be a wonderful occasion with a mix of all ages through out the club. Apart from the weather everything went according to plan. A sincere thank you to the committee and all volunteers who made the day possible. Of course the draw for the club monster draw was a great attraction. The overall winner of a €2,500 holiday voucher was Brian Nerney, the All Ireland tickets and night away went to Fiona and Melissa Mattimoe and the final prize of a €150 voucher to award winning Buffalo Boy went to Tadgh McKenna. The club was delighted to recognise Mikey Mc Grath on his great achievement on being selected for international soccer duty.

The club lotto saw no winner if the € 4,700 jackpot, €20 winners were Gerry Nerney, Amy Kenny and Brian Furey. Next week's draw will take place in Dodd`s bar.

It was a disappointing day out again for the McGovern Directional Drilling Senior team who lost to Clann Na Gael in the Abbey Park on Saturday evening. Both teams players without their county stars. Boyle started strongly and played some fine football in the first half but coincided a goal and point just before the break which left a margin of 6 points at half time, in what was really a unfair reflection of the work. In the first half. Boyle would be fighting hard again in the second half if they were to get a win and a well taken goal from Seamus. Kane (1.4) slowed the margins. Some poor shooting and shot selection in the later quarter from/boyle say Clann the eventual winners by 1.16 to 1.10. Boyle`S team; R Kearney, A Sharkey, D Callaghan, C Beirne, B Furery, S Purcell, R Finneran, R Hanmore, E McGrath, D Easy, C Goldrick, Ciaran Cox, S Kane, M Hanmore, Marc O Connor.

Update 14th May

The junior team were in action this weekend in a league game v neighbours Ballinameen. There was a strong breeze which should have aided Boyle in the first half but the score return from shots was poor and Boyle finished the half with only 3 scores 2 of which were well taken goals by Jack Moran and Seamus Kane. Boyle had to battle hard in the second half as Ballinameen for 13 men behind the ball time and time again, breaking at pace with numbers. Boyle pressed hard and eventually drew level thanks to a long range free from Colin Goldrick (who kept Boyle in the game for most of the 60 minutes) but it was not to be as Ballinameen broke up the field and won a free on front of the post which was slotted over for the last kick of the game.
Congratulations to Mike Tormey who came on as a sub after a number of years away from the team. Best wishes to Thomas Halligan who picked up and injury in the match.

Thanks to all who participated, to Martin and Barry for  organising the event, to Kathleen and James for providing refreshments before departure and Hannah for provision of scones which sustained us on our return journey. Thanks especially to Damien for taking a day off work to drive the bus. Thoughts are already turning to choosing a destination for next year’s trip!
