There was no winner of this week's lotto jackpot of €7,900. The numbers drawn were 16, 19 , 23 & 31. €20 winners were Seamus Cooney, Eughene Halligan and Padraig Supple. Next weeks draw will take place in the Stairs.

Stephens day this year once again saw a huge turnout for a Gaelic Tag football match. This was the first years where our Ladies team got involved. It was a case of over 25s v under 25s. With some harsh ref-ing decisions the game was deemed a draw and went to penalties won the over 25s once again victorious. Thanks to all who showed up in support of the event.

Next up was Friday the 28th which proved to be yet again a great social event for Boyle GAA. With quiz master Tony Conboy in flying form with both questions and wit in front of a full house. At the end of the night there was no dividing the teams at the fore with McCauley/Cox's team sharing the spoils with Gannon/Lavin's and Co.

Of course player of the year awards were dished out also with the U-20 accolade going to James Bolger, Junior going to Recee Conroy, Senior to Cian Mc Keon and Ladies Payer of The Year going to Sinead Glennon. The Overall Hall of Fame went to our ever hard working club person Mary Clifford.

Well done to all, and many thanks to all who helped in the setting up and running of the hall and quiz and well wishes to all Boyle GAA members both on and off the pitch in 2019.
