Great day out in Armagh

Despite the coach having everyone turn up two hours before the first game we still had a superb days sport at the Armagh blitz. The weather was kind with the only shower passing before play commenced. Picnic tables and goodies lined the pitch sides and at the clubhouse the brilliant Armagh hosts doled out hot dogs, burgers, chilli and drinks for the entire duration. The rugby was very well organised and Boyne had games against Armagh, Dundalk, & Coolmine. We just missed out on a final spot thanks to a last ditch breakaway try by Coolmine in the last game; so unlucky.
