U16 Boys Football Div 1 Championship
Our Boys travelled to Boyle last Wednesday evening to kick off their 2019 Championship campaign. Without a few players and a few injuries, we delivered a good win on a scoreline of 3-13 to 1 - 9. The lads delivered what was required to get the campaign off to a good start. Boyle were quick out of the blocks with 3 unanswered points. We slowly started to exert ourselves and kicked some lovely scores to lead by 1-10 to 0-5 at the break. We pushed on early in the second half and never looked in any real bother despite been down to 14 men for the last 10 minutes. We now have a 4 week break but plenty of work to be done. Many thanks to all the players and parents who make the journey this evening.
The launch of our heifer fundraiser took place on Sunday, August 4 with a great crowd turning up in Woodmount.
We ran a competition to pick the name of the heifer, which was also announced on the night. Fionnuala Kelly Monahan won a Padraig Pearses top for her efforts in naming the heifer "Brexella". Tickets for this fundraiser are €5 each or a book of 5 for €20. First prize is the heifer, 2nd prize is €500 cash, 3rd prize is €150 cash and 4th prize is a yearly Padraig Pearses lotto ticket. You can also buy tickets on our website - www.padraigpearses.ie.
Padraig Pearses would like to thank all our sponsors: Matrix, Top Con, Alan Murray, Padraig Ryan, Shane Hardiman, Pat Dolan Livestock, Aurivo, Roscommon Vet Supplies and Marsha Simmentals for supporting our fundraiser.
