The Club extends a very warm invitation to all its members and friends of the Club to attend. 2017 has seen great success for men's football, adult and underage, ladies football  and camogie.  Success on the pitch has been complemented by development work around the grounds, not least the development and extension of our training grounds, the development of a wonderful gym facility,  the completion of a walking track, an entire make over of our Clubrooms, the dedication of our stand to JJ Nerney etc.  New initiatives like the Nursery Programme, Iar Gaeil, Health and Wellness, involvement in Scor etc are testimony to a vibrant club. The pictorial representation of the Club's history in the meeting room is a must see. So come along on Sunday to reflect on a great year and plan for an even better 2018!”

Our Junior team finished off their campaign with a very respectable 14 points in their league campaign.  Well done to the team and management.

Pride of place goes to  the Ladies Minor team who won the county final on Friday evening, beating Kilbride 2-15 to 2-04. The match was played under lights on one of the coldest evenings of the year, but a super team effort produced some great scores and a high standard of football. Congratulations to the team and management.

At the AGM the following officers were elected: Chairperson: Noel Scally; Secretary: Bernie Mullins; Treasurer: Cathy Garavan; Registrar: Sabrina Kerins: Children's Officer: Mary Scally; PRO: Karen Brogan.

2017 was a very successful year for the club at all age levels, with both the U16s and Minors winning county titles. Thanks to the coaches and all who supported the teams throughout the year.  Thanks to Boyle Today, Realboyle and The Roscommon Herald for promoting our club. To ensure the continued success of the club we really need to get more people involved, both coaching and on the committee. Looking forward to continued success in 2018 and having lots of new people coming on board.

Sympathy of the club to the McGuire family on the passing of Bernard, Majella Dodd on the passing of her brother Anthony and to Pacelli McDermott on the passing of his brother Sean. May they rest in peace.

The curtain came down on the Junior season over the weekend when an under strength team  lost out to Kilmore. Thanks to the players on the panel. The season saw  some good wins but was frustrated by too many cancellations, often at the last minute , which killed the momentum. Much appreciation must go to the management team of Bernard Shannon, Aidan Lavin and Paul Beirne who 'kept the faith' throughout the year. Special thanks also to Alan Cooney , Cooney Motors for his sponsorship of the team.
