Update 28th October

Boyle Cooney Motors sponsored junior team are now through to the Junior B championship county final after beating Strokestown in a reply on Saturday afternoon. It was a tight affair for most of the first half with Boyle once again struggling to get scores. However the game opened up in the second half and Boyle pushed on with the help of the bench and eventually ran out 6 points winners. They now face Furety with time and pitch to be decided. Your support will be much appreciated and needed for this county final.

Public Meeting - Termon Lands

FRI NOV 1st. 8.30pm. St Joseph's Hall.

As members will be aware there are plans in place to develop a shared community sports facility at Termon Lands.

The project is a very significant undertaking and has the potential to provide huge benefits to the town. Facilities will include, soccer pitch, GAA pitch, b-ball courts, running track, hurling/handball/tennis wall, tennis courts, playground, sensory area, swimming area.

The next critical stage is the transfer of lands to the community. This transfer of lands must be agreed by means of a public vote. The Dept. of Agriculture will attend this public meeting next Friday. We need large representation to demonstrate our need and support of the transfer of the lands to the community groups. If this is refused or opposed to by a majority the project will not proceed. This is vital for the town.

Please do not assume this project will automatically proceed - it can only progress with your support. Do not leave it to others to do the voting! Everyone must come to support/vote to ensure the project progresses to the next phase.

Boyle GAA therefore urge all who have an interest in seeing the project progress to attend this meeting next Friday.

The Club wish to extend its sympathy to the Daly Family on the passing of Paddy. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam dilis.
A mimutes silence was observed as a mark of respect in Abbey Park today.

Sympathy of the club also to the King family on their recent bereavement.

Update 21st October

Our Cooney Motors sponsored junior team travelled to Strokestown on Saturday evening last to take on Strokestown in the championship semi final. Boyle had to call on a few of the veterans for this one as numbers were low mid week. Boyle started bright and quickly had the ball in the onion bag thanks to Tiernan Henry. It was evenly matched from her on until Ben Kerins got his marching orders close to half time. Boyle doing well went in 1.7 to 1.4 down at half time. Again Boyle started well in the second half and before we knew it Boyle had two more goals without reply. Strokestown then had a number of points on the trot and pressure was on. Boyle’s goalie was harshly done for over carrying in the small square and saved the following penalty. With 7 minutes additional time to be played, no team looked certain to win. Boyle were up by a point thanks to Ray Hannon in the dying moments but there was still time for one last Strokestown attack. The referee deemed Strokestown forward was fouled as he shot and a free was awarded, a simple tap over and the game ended a draw on the score line of Boyle 3.07 Strokestown 1.13. A man of the match performance from youngsters Tiernan Henry say him finish with 2.05 to his name.
