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. Mikey's had the honour of picking the winners of the Monster Draw along with Kathleen Hanmore.
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.
