Boyle GAA Covid 1900km Challenge – Final Update

Congratulations to everyone who took part in our challenge. Together, we ran/walked a total of 5,822.79 km. Most importantly, we managed to raise a huge €5,204.00 for the Brothers of Charity. A sincere thank you to everyone who donated to this worthy cause. A special thank you also to Jackie Valentine who calculated the mileage daily throughout the month. At the start of the month, we set an initial target of raising €750 and walking/running 1,900 kms. We underestimated the generosity and dedication which exist in our great community.

Safe Return for Gaelic Games

The GAA, An Cumann CamogaĆ­ochta and the LGFA published a plan on the 5th June for a safe return to Gaelic games for the three organisations. For now, the pitch is still closed, but people can use the walkway around the pitch from 8th June in groups of no more than 4 people as per the guidelines. Boyle GAA will be adhering to these guidelines as well as HSE guidelines, and we will be keeping our members up to date as things progress, having regard to player and volunteer health as a priority. It is a positive development and it is good to see some light at the end of the tunnel!
