Boyle GAA Club and Boyle Celtic FC have joined forces to launch an innovative joint development draw.

Among the prizes are a break to the beautiful five-star Fota Island Resort in Cork, with €1,000 spending money in your back pocket and a brand new Nissan Qashqai to take you there.

That is the wonderful prize on offer in an innovative new draw that has seen Boyle’s soccer and GAA clubs join together in a spirit of post-Covid solidarity. In addition, the winner will also have an opportunity to lend a helping hand to a worthy cause, with a €3,000 cheque to donate to a charity of their choice.

The community of Boyle has been well served by Boyle Celtic and Boyle GAA over many decades. Both clubs have seen their membership grow significantly in recent times, particularly at underage level.

Their facilities are now enjoyed by multiple boys and girls teams from Under-6 upwards. They also have numerous adult teams to cater for, including Over-50s, Over-40s, Football for All and ladies recreation groups.

A host of other community groups have regular access to their facilities as well, such as Active Age, Neighbourhood Youth Project and the local schools.

This huge increase in demand has left both organisations requiring some badly-needed upgrading of their facilities. It was for this reason that they decided to join forces and work together for the benefit of the community they continue to serve.

The ‘Boyle Celtic FC and Boyle GAA Joint Development Draw’ will provide people with an opportunity to show their support and appreciation for these two North Roscommon-based clubs, and the positive impact they have had on the region over many decades.

And, of course, there will also be that wonderful first prize to play for, along with a host of other prizes to be won in a series of bonus draws that will take place throughout the summer.

These will include a weekend trip to New York, a cruise on the River Shannon, a luxury hotel and spa break in Ireland, and a ‘sports bundle’ to include All-Ireland final tickets and an overnight stay in England to take in a Manchester United match.

The price of entry for the draw is €50, and tickets will be limited. So for less than a month’s subscription to a digital television sports channel, make sure to purchase your ticket and be in with a chance of taking home some of those super prizes.

“I’m delighted to lend my support to the upcoming ‘Boyle Celtic and Boyle GAA Joint Development Draw’. Having plied my trade with both clubs over the years, I have seen at first hand the great work and enjoyment they have brought to the town,” said Roscommon senior football captain and Boyle player Enda Smith.

Seán Purcell, an integral player for both clubs, added: “Hopefully the results of this fundraiser will help future generations obtain some of the great opportunities afforded to me from being associated with these great clubs. Please support where possible.”
