Congratulations to the Boyerstown Girls Gaelic Football Team who won the Meath Schools Division 4 Title on Saturday in Pairc Tailteann. It was a close contest with rivals Oristown N.S. but the girls showed great resolve and determination and plenty of skill and fitness to get the better of their opponents on a scoreline of 4-2 to 2-4. The captains accepted the cup on behalf of the 28 girls from third to sixth class who all contributed so much in training and games throughout the campaign that started in early September. We would like to thank all the pupils, parents, grandparents and friends in the Boyerstown Community who turned out in great numbers to support the team on Saturday morning.We thank Siobhan and Niall O’Regan and David Callaghan from Crannóg Roofing for generously sponsoring a set of half-zip tops for the girls and mentors for the final.
We thank the Parents Council and Rosita and John Moyles for organising the delicious food for the girls and their families after the final in the Boyerstown Community Centre.
We thank Margaret Hennessey, Miss Sherlock and Mr ÓBric for their work with the team on Saturday and over the past ten weeks.
Last but not least, thank you to the 28 girls who put heart and soul into being the fastest, fittest, strongest and most skillful team they could be over the past two and a half months. You are a great credit to your families, your clubs and your school. Well done!
