Boyle GAA Club, County winners in the recent Texaco Support for Sport initiative, has been presented with a cheque for €5,000 which will be used to develop its facilities including the construction of a wheelchair section for supporters to view matches and training sessions.

Boyle GAA Club has played an important part in the development of the national games in Boyle and throughout County Roscommon. Combined, Boyle GAA Club, Boyle LGFA Club and Boyle Camogie Club cater for a diverse membership in excess of 600, spanning age groups from its nursery programmes up to senior teams.

The Roscommon county award was presented to Tremane GAA Club last year. The initiative has proven  to be a massive success.

Now in its second year, the Texaco Support for Sport initiative sees an annual fund of €130,000 set aside for allocation in equal amounts of €5,000 to successful applicants chosen on a county-by-county basis.

Overseeing the adjudication process was Texaco Support for Sport ambassador, former Irish rugby international and broadcaster, Donncha O’Callaghan.

Entries to the Texaco Support for Sport 2023 initiative will open this autumn.
