Seniors bow out
Our McGovern Directional Drilling Seniors reached the end of their Hodson Bay Hotel Group Senior Championship campaign on Sunday when they went down to a superior and physically stronger and more experienced St Brigids in the County Semi-Final in Strokestown. It has been a great championship run for the team, reaching the semi final for the first time since 1927. No doubt this will be a great learning experience for all.
Thanks a million to the entire panel for their commitment throughout the entire season. To Michael Jordan and his excellent management team. We wish to thank Tony McGovern for providing food for the lads after the game on Sunday.
Finally, we wish to thank our magnificent supporters who have followed us throughout the year.
Congratulations to our u14s on being presented with the Garda Cup for 2015 after receiving a walkover from Tulsk on Sunday. Thanks to the Boyle Garda Division and to Sergeant Frank Egan and Garda Michael Pilkington for presenting the cup and the medals. Thanks to those who provided food for refreshments after the presentations. Thanks also to Loyola Kelly who presented the player of the match trophy in memory of her husband the late Sergeant John Kelly. The trophy was presented to Stephen O’Connor for his performance in the A versus B game that was played among the Boyle panel, with the assistance of two Tulsk players.
