Boden Drama Group hosting play

THE Boden Drama Group are staging John Murphy's play 'The Country Boy.' The run starts tomorrow night and finishes next Saturday. The venue is the Ballyboden St Enda's club hall on the Firhouse Road. The show begins at 8.0.

Joe O'Sullivan is the director. It's his first three-act play. He is a much acclaimed actor.

"It is a funny, emotional and touching play," explains Carol Fitzmaurice. "It tells the story of emigration, love, rural farm life, the struggle against stubborn Irish ways and the prospect of a very different life on American shores."

The Boden Drama Group have been highly successful. They have played to packed houses. And this production is sure to be another wonderful night's entertainment.

Tickets cost €12. Concessions €8. Available from Ger (086-8516387)/ Carol (086-4070015).

CRUMLIN are remembering one of Dublin's favourite sons, Jimmy Boggan, a lover of the small ball with the big heart of gold.

He was devoted to Dublin hurling and camogie. He managed the senior county teams, and a hundred other teams at Crumlin. Many at the same time!

He had a lovely way with people. The kids adored him. He made them laugh. He made the sliotar hum. He had a dry wit that could cut the grass.

On Thursday, April 3rd, Crumlin are launching the Jimmy Boggan Memorial Cycle at O'Toole Park (8.0).

"Everybody is welcome to come along," says Cathy Walsh.

"We'd love people to join in and remember the great man."

If Jimmy had anything to do with the cycle, he'd make sure that each stage winner would get a blue jersey instead of a yellow one.
