Update 20th April

The Abbey Park, which is usually a hive of activity at this time of year, lies silent. Passing by it now it is easy to recall many great memories, and as it basks in this glorious weather it prompts us to now remember those that that have passed on.

We therefore extend our condolences to the McKenna family on the sad and tragic passing of Ciara.

Further, we remember Edwin "Junior" Dooley who graced the pitch with such aplomb as a player in the late sixties and seventies.

Finally we extend our sympathy to our neighbours St. Ronans on the passing of Canon Peadar Lavin (An tAthair Peadar Ó Láimhin), who passed away peacefully recently. He was well known as our Parish Priest and as the former principal at St. Mary’s College in Boyle. He is fondly remembered and will be sadly missed. Ní bheidh a leithéid ann arís.

Update 6th April

Condolences from all at Boyle GAA to the Connelly family and Creggs club, on the recent sad passing of former Roscommon player Conor Connelly. The flag was flown at half-mast in the Abbey Park as a mark of respect. Ar dheis Dè go raibh a anam.

As per Croke Park guidelines, club facilities continue to remain closed due to Covid-19. Boyle GAA are a volunteer organisation of the Roscommon Covid-19 community response forum. If you need anything during this difficult period please call 1800 200 727 and hopefully we'll be able to help. 

And finally on a happier note, congratulations to Karl and Eadaoin Keenan on the birth of their baby daughter Róisín.
