Boyle & District Angling Clubs annual Charity pike angling competition will be held on this Sunday 1st of February 2009 on Lough Key.
Fishing from 11am to 4pm.

Entry fee: Euro 20 per angler

All proceeds will go to the Special Olympics Ireland / Roscommon area.

We hope for a good turnout to support this worthy cause.

A special big thank you goes to the pupils, parents and teachers of St. Josephs National School in Boyle who supported our fundraising with a "No Uniform Day" on Friday.

Pupils from each class and the headmaster of the School presented members of the Committee of Boyle & District Angling Club with their much valued contribution towards the fundraising for Special Olympics Ireland/ Roscommon area, during the day.

As a sign of appreciation for their efforts, the Club presented the pupils of the school with a certificate granting junior membership of Boyle & District Angling Club for the year 2009 for each of them. All pupils will receive their membership cards in due course.

Again Thank you and Well Done!!!
