Update 27th July

Senior Club
Boyle had an exciting first-round opener against Padraig Pearses in the Senior Championship on Sunday. After making the long journey to Woodmount, the lads tore into the home side and amassed a 12 point lead in the second half, with goals from James Bolger, Enda Smith, and Donie Smith. However, Pearses hauled back the deficit with the aid of a significant breeze in the second half, and in the last play of the game scored a goal for it to finish level on a scoreline of 2-10 to 3-07.

Team: R. Carney, E. McGrath, C. Flanagan, Ciaran Beirne, T. McKenna, S. Purcell, Killian Cox, R. Hanmore, E. Smith, J. Bolger, D. Smith, T. Lowe, M. O'Donohoe, S. Kane, C. McKeon with Kieran Cox, R. Finneran and B. Furey.

Senior Championship 
Our senior men play the County Champions, Padraig Pearses, away in Woodmount next Sunday at 2pm in the first round of the championship. Tickets for this year's adult championship games will not now be sold online as previously advised. As crowds for outdoor events are limited to 200 people (which includes players, management, referees, linesmen, umpires, stewards and supporters), each club will be allocated only 50 tickets for supporters. Unfortunately, this means that someone who wants a ticket may not get one.  We would ask for everyone’s patience and understanding and we will release further information as it becomes available.

Cúl Camps
Cúl camps are back in Boyle this week. The camp coordinators have asked us to advise parents that the health and safety of all the children is of greatest importance. For the duration of the camp, cars will not be permitted on the park grounds.  Parents are asked to park and walk their children to the gate where they will be met by the Cúl camp staff. We hope that everyone has a great week, makes lots of new friends and learns new skills. 

Boyle GAA would like to extend the deepest condolences to the Mahon family on the sad passing of Joe. Many a young Boyle GAA player will have fond memories of getting football boots or socks from Mahons on the Crescent in Boyle, and with his kind and jovial nature, Joe made you feel like the most important player in the County! May Joe rest in peace.

Boyle GAA Club members were saddened to hear of the passing of our great friend Tony McGovern, RIP, who was laid to rest on Wednesday last. Our sincere condolences to his wife Marian and family, particularly his sons Mark and Declan who have been longstanding players for the club. Tony has been a loyal sponsor of the senior team for many years and his generosity and support have always been very much appreciated. We will miss Tony and he will not be forgotten. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Back in action!

Everyone's health and safety is our priority and we ask that you would use our hand sanitizers on entry and exiting our grounds. Hundreds of parents and adult players have now completed the GAA elearning program for the safe return to play and we remind everyone to update the health questionnaire before every training session or match. Otherwise unfortunately you won't be able to participate. With everyone working together, we can all keep safe while enjoying all that our games give us.
