New Camogie Club for north Roscommon
Plans are afoot for setting up a new Camogie Club in the Boyle area. Indoor Coaching has taken place and hopes are high that they will take part in the blitzes for Under 8 and under 10 during the summer months. When Camogie re-started back in Roscommon in 1966 Boyle was involved so it would be great to have them back again in the County to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the revival of Camogie in the County.
