Boyne finished off their league in great style on Sunday last at a very cold but, resplendent Shamrock Lodge. The club went all out to celebrate their rise in rugby status by naming the occasion “Elevation Day”. And, what an occasion it turned out to be. Every aspect of the club was on show with the mini’s starting off proceedings at one o’clock with several exhibition games climaxing with the Des Smyth Foundation team of St. Pauls taking the field just before the big game, taking on a club selected side. With plenty of entertainment for the children by way of slides and sideshows, there was also food and beverage in abundance provided by club members, John Hennessy and Terry Lockyer and the Grounds Development Committee didn’t let the day go by without displaying their progress to date and accepted any donations and pledges that was given for the cause. To the blare of fanfare music and the great enthusiasm of announcer on the day, Eamon Duffy, both teams were introduced onto the field in a blaze of colour and excitement. There was a guard of honour led by Boyne’s under 19’s Leinster Champions and younger members of the club who clapped their League winning side onto the pitch.
