Boden enters first handball tournament

On Sunday 20th January 2019 ten under 15 Ballyboden St. Endas hurlers participated in an under 15 doubles handball tournament in St. Brigid's GAA Club against teams from St. Brigids, St. Marks and Na Fianna and acquitted themselves with great distinction. Medals were presented by former All-Ireland Handball Singles Winner Eoin Kennedy. This was the first time that the Club participated in a Handball competition and fulfils one of the aims of the Club's Caoga Blian af Fas committee for 2019. Enda Timoney, a former member of Ballyboden St. Endas was the man in charge and the competition ran like clockwork. The boys, members of our under 15 hurling team which is managed by Emmet Pullan have been training indoors under the watchful eye of coach Gary McNulty in St. Colmcille's School for a number of weeks and have improved with every session. There was a large attendance which included many parents, mentors, the Club's Director of Coaching Brian O'Regan and the Chairman of the Club's 50th Anniversary Committee John Kirwan.

Handball squad: 

Brian O'Regan (Director of Coaching), Sean Wall, Stephen Pullan, Leon Kennedy, Sean O'Shea, Sam Doyle, Gary McNulty (Handball Coach), Jack Hutchinson, Jim Kennedy, Andrew McGough, Jack O'Connor, Seán MacPhaidín, John Kirwan (Chairman 50th Anniversary Committee), Emmet Pullan (Manager U15 Hurling Team).

Sancta Maria Construction Works


Please note that demolition works will commence shortly of old school buildings in the Sancta Maria school complex. These works will affect our two-storey building on the left of the dressing room courtyard i.e., where Sparc Physiotherapy is located. Part of the two-storey building as far as the railing, on the pitch side of the building, will be demolished as well as the chimney at the back of the building (down to the eaves). While appropriate safety barriers will be erected, members are advised to be
extra careful when using this general area in the next few weeks. For your information, the final plan is to create a one-way traffic system, entering in front of Saplings school and exiting at the back of the two-storey building and the apple garden. The roadway will be upgraded and improved. Sancta Maria will be building a sports hall, basketball courts and car parks, to which the Club will have access.
