Boden Academy Returns 17th September

Winning Championship Sunday for our U15 Hurlers!

Well done to our U15 Hurlers on their A and C Championship Quarter Final wins on Sunday morning. Our A's were away in the 12th Lock to Lucan Sarsfields and our B's took on Kilmacud Crokes B at home in Cherryfield.

The Semi Finals are scheduled for Sunday 4th September.

Best of Luck to all the boys and their management teams in their next round.

Páirc Uí Mhurchú is now closed

It will take approx 5-6 weeks to complete the works programme subject to weather conditions. While the work is in progress the top half of the car park will be used by the contractors with pedestrian access only to the dressing rooms. Unfortunately car parking spaces will be limited for this period so we would appreciate members support during the development. Weather dependent, the committee would anticipate re-opening in June 2017. We understand this will cause considerable disruption for all our members but hope the inconvenience caused will be worth it in the long term. We thank you in advance for your patience.

1916 Commemorations - Sponsorship

Seisiún Sensations

Joe Johnston and his crew took their Summer break last Monday after another very successful Seisiún. The variety of music and songs was excellent and the versatility of the performers was outstanding. Compliments all round to the musicians, singers and dancers on their performances during the year and and everyone is looking forward to their return in September. These monthly Monday night sessions have grown in popularity and the club is extremely grateful for the support of so many people who attend. ¨They have made a massive contribution to our Centenary celebrations¨said Coiste Comórtha an Chéid Chair John Kirwan.

Many of the performers are new to playing music but under Joe's teaching they have made massive strides - interested? then contact Joe on 087 9828769.

Brendan Moran, cathaoirleach, welcomed Donncha to the club and thanked him on behalf of Coiste Comórtha an Chéid. He also thanked Tomás Ó Reachtabhra and the other members of the Coiste for their Trojan work over the last six months. Nuair a bheidh an Plaic seo ar crochadh tá súil againn go mbeidh sé mar chomhra buan sa chlub is go mbainfidh daoine lán taithneamh as.
