BOYLE GAA I’M A CELEB GET ME OUT OF HERE – Best of luck to Boyle GAA with this ambitious fundraiser with which a number of our club members are involved behind the scenes, none of whom feature as prominently as Karl Keenan who has been foolhardy enough to volunteer as one of the participants. His stomach-turning exploits will be on display in St Josephs Hall on the 16th of March at 8pm! Good luck Karl.
