Boyle GAA Day Trip to Croke Park
Boyle GAA Club in conjunction with the GAA Social initiative is organising a project, the object of which is to bring together in a social setting, those who have been involved in various ways with the club over the years. The reality is that many people fall away from their GAA club and the connection that once was an important part of their lives dwindles. Our mission is to try to re connect as many of you as possible with our club in a social way. And don’t worry, we are not going to ask you to line the field or train the u-12 team (unless you want to of course!!!)
As our first initiative we are arranging a trip to Dublin on Friday 7th April. The Club is hiring the state-of-the-art Club Rossie bus for the occasion!
We are preparing a very attractive range of activities for the day. The focal point will be a trip to the GAA Museum in Croke Park, and a tour of the venue itself. This a real “must-see” for anyone with just even a passing interest in Gaelic Games, and we have no doubt that those who may have seen it before will be keen to see it again. The Croke Park visit package includes lunch at the venue.
We will then travel to Leinster House where a visit to Dáil and Seanad Éireann will be kindly facilitated by Deputy Eugene Murphy TD and Senator Frank Feighan.
The club will be making a contribution towards the cost of the trip, however we are asking for a contribution of just €30 from each person which will cover transport lunch and the tour.
We are offering you, as someone with a long connection with Boyle GAA, the opportunity to participate on this trip. We feel that the 2 visitor attractions chosen will be of immense interest to you. The trip will be a great chance to catch up with your pals who share a love of the club and the enjoyment of friends and old acquaintances.
As you will appreciate, the bus will be restricted to 50 passengers. For that reason, we feel that the fairest way of deciding on who should go, is by “first come-first-served” method. We therefore ask that if you wish to travel (and we earnestly hope that you do), that you confirm your intention to travel and to submit the €30 to either of the undersigned IMMEDIATELY, as once we have reached the bus capacity, we will have to close reservations.
(Please note that if you have a friend, spouse or partner who has no GAA connection they are also very welcome to join us)
The U-16 were defeat by St. Dominics in the championship over the weekend. They play St. Brigid’s in Kiltoom on St. Patrick’s day at 11am and St. Mary’s Sunday March 19th in the Abbey Park at 4pm.
