The Club's monster fuel draw will take place on Friday next 26th September. First prize is a trailer load of firewood, 2nd prize is 500 litres of heating oil, and 3rd and 4th prizes consist of a €100 voucher and €100 cash. You can be in the draw for as little as €2. Club officers and players have draw cards. Please support as the funding will go towards the improvement of our training pitch

Did You Win €86.7 million?

The winner of the gigantic €86.7m EuroMillions jackpot has made contact with the Lotto offices. Although the winning ticket is believed to have been sold in Dublin, it is not known if the winner is Dublin-based or is part of a syndicate win like last week's Donegal Irish Lotto winners.

Generally, September is among Ireland's wettest months and if you're packing for a trip to the Emerald Isle during this time, the advice used to be "be sure to leave extra room for an umbrella, boots and a raincoat". However, this year, the statistics will show that we are enjoying warm sunny days, seldom but a light shower and gorgeous blue skies daily.

This is a competition that is synonymous with Boyle Club as the trophy is dedicated to a young Boyle footballer who died some years ago, the late Ernan Keenan. Ernan's briother Karl who is home from Australia, will be on hand to present the cup to the winning captain. Come along and support those Under 12 footballers.
