The annual Roscommon GAA convention will be held in Boyle on Monday, 14th December next. The Boyle GAA club had asked the county board to consider their request to stage the convention to mark the 125th anniversary of the association and the county board agreed. The convention will take place at St Joseph’s Hall. The centenary convention took place in Boyle in 1984 and the very first Roscommon GAA convention also took place in Boyle in 1889. The 2009 convention will also see the appointment of Boyle man John Joe Nerney as the new President of Roscommon GAA to replace the late Jimmy Murray RIP.
