Week 10 Lotto Results

Oops...She did it again!

Congrats to our Senior Camogie girls as they overcame Erin's Isle by 3-16 to 4-06 in PUM last night despite being 12 points down at half time! The game was notable for it contained one of the rarest of skills - the sideline cut score.

Our very own Anne Griffin (pictured above) repeated her deed from the County final almost 3 years ago last night with a wonderful cut from 13 metres. Well done Anne.

U21 Football Champions!

Our U21 footballers ended an eleven year wait for a fourth U21 Championship for the club after a dramatic final against a gallant Raheny side. Boden were the better side in the first half and went in 1-04 to 0-03 up at the break. Raheny came out all guns blazing in the second half and really put the Boden defence to the test. As the minutes ticked by some magnificient defending by our lads just got us over the line with a point to spare. Final score 1-05 to 0-07. Well done to all the players and mentors for a fantastic Championship winning run, you have done yourselves and the club proud.
