Congratulations to Niall Carroll from the Boyne Under 9's who has won the 4 x Scotland tickets and the Limousine trip to the Ireland-Scotland match this weekend. We would like to thank all those who assisted the clubs by purchasing the raffle tickets.
The trophy display day was indeed something very special and is unlikely to be repeated ever again. We were honoured later on in the evening by the presence of the IRFU President, John Callaghan, who was persuaded to give a bar of the song "The Boys From The County Armagh". He is, of course, a member of Armagh RFC. Mr. Callaghan endeared himself to the Boyne members and he and his wife, Mabel, were most convivial company and mixed with the Boyne members most freely spending the night amongst them.
This night was billed as "The Night Of Nights" and it would be difficult to argue with that headline if you were in the Bettystown Court Hotel on Saturday night last at the celebration Victory Ball of local rugby club Boyne RFC. This innovative night had everything that success brings to these occasions. Obviously the organisers wanted to go beyond the success of just winning the Provincial Towns Cup for the first time, they also wanted to pay tribute to those teams who had striven so hard to achieve this distinction down through the years.
Boyne Rugby Club have certainly put together a very unique event on Sunday next the 11th of October when they will have every trophy that has been won by Ireland and Irish teams. The 6 Nations, Triple Crown, Churchill Cup all won by the Irish team and the Magners League Cup won by Munster along with the Heineken Cup won by Leinster. Among them all will be the coveted Provincial Towns Cup won by Boyne this year. The occasion will also be honoured by the attendance of Mr. John Callaghan the IRFU President and his wife.
The first pre-match lunch of the season takes place this Saturday 26th September at 1pm. Tickets to the lunch, which includes match ticket, are priced at €30 each. Places are limited so reserve yours now by calling Reggie McHugh at 087–2430107. Reservations must be accompanied by payment in full, otherwise they cannot be guaranteed. The match against Seapoint kicks off at 3pm.
Please Note that this has been cancelled as a mark of respect for the late Jazz Craven, member of Boyne RFC, whose funeral takes place on Saturday 26th September.
The great exploits of Boyne Rugby Club winning the Provincial Towns Cup along with all the teams from Boyne, Delvin & Drogheda who reached the finals will come together to celebrate their successes at a Gala Dinner Dance to be held in the Bettystown Court Hotel on Saturday October 24th. Tickets for the event, which is black tie dress, will cost €80. Tickets and more details can be got from Joe Bradley, 087-2188585 or Seamie Briscoe, 087-2208931.
The night was a huge success from a number of perspectives. First of all, in the tradition of good community spirit, we had a tremendous turnout from the public. So many, in fact, that we had to delay the start for 15 minutes because of the traffic congestion caused by the number of people who came to the event.
Cars were parked right back to the top of the avenue from the Boyne Valley Hotel & Country Club to the old Dublin Road.
