Cumann na mBunscol Boys Football
Bracknagh 5-8 Boher 3-6.
Unfortunately, Boher Boys Football team will not join Boher Girls team in the County Final. Having lost to Tubber last week by a point, they faced Bracknagh in a winner takes all game in Ballycumber on Monday. Once again a slow start cost them and though they fought to the end they could not make up the deficit. Many thanks to Tom Naughton and Ken Daly and all the players' parents for their help with the team this year.

A Walker's Guide To Ballycumber Past
Arrangements are being put in place to launch our book in early June. The book is the result of research carried out into the rich local history of the Ballycumber, Grogan, Liss, Coroe, Prospect and Twickenham areas. It is a continuation of the script carried by Guides on the very successful Ballycumber Discovery Walk at Halloween. Details of the launch will be announced soon and we issue an open invitation to all to attend.
