Public Space being considered for Royal Hotel site

Herald-Masthead 16th January

Roscommon Herald report, page 40: Roscommon Ceo Eugene Cummins is quoted “If someone wants to consider running a hotel on the site, then we’ll talk to them. There are flooding issues on the site and I think the footprint or footfall is not big enough for a viable hotel.” The CEO said the development of a “high quality, open area with an element of build” was one of the ideas being considered by the council.

2018: the year of drinking sensibly

In 2017, nature wrought havoc on the world of wine, with fires in California and devastating frosts and hail storms in Europe. France, Spain, Italy and Chile have all had smaller harvests and we could see a global shortage of wine.
In this country we will most likely see the implementation of the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill, which will have a significant effect on how alcohol is sold.

Has Boyle capitalised on its potential?

A viewer wrote: “Is Boyle destined to suffer more of the same tired rhetoric coming from Roscommon Co Council’s sibling “The Town Team”? Many of the “Team” ideas have been in the public domain since long before the “Team” existed. Insiders suggest that the “Team” will be returned again with its current executive following its approaching tri-annual AGM – for the simple reason that there is nobody else in Boyle prepared to spearhead the body.
• In fairness, we all realise that Roscommon Co Council controls the purse strings and remains the seat of Real Power in the county and over the town we love so well”

My main aim is to write about the people and their stories, their memories – what you won’t find in the history books. So I am looking to make contact with people who may have heard their relatives/neighbours talk about those hard times in our area. The time frame is between 1850 to the early 1920s. The workhouse was on the site of the Plunkett Home.

Sunday 11am – 1pm
Please note: On occasion it may be necessary for the Gardai working at the station having to respond to a call or incident of an urgent nature. If this arises, they will have to temporarily close the station in order to respond to the incident.
• In addition to providing increased opening hours this will provide greater uniformity and consistency for the public.
• Gardai wish to thank the people of Boyle and the surrounding area for their continued support.
