Parkrun Saturday 25th February

P0002393Some of the Lough Key Parkrun participants who braved the elements in Doorly Park, Sligo

A wet and windy Doorly Park, Sligo, was the morning’s venue for Parkrun. Doorly Park was an ‘away’ for the event normally held in Lough Key Forest Park. Earlier in the week, Storm Doris left fallen trees and debris throughout the park, so parkrun organisers wisely joined for the day’s event with the Sligo parkrun group.
Lough Key parkrun participants were some of the first home led by Dean Beirne (3rd) and first lady finisher Ann Wynne

• We encourage as many businesses, clubs and associations in Boyle to prepare over the coming weeks to partake in the Parade and enter a float. Entering a float is free so do avail of the opportunity! 1st Prize for Overall Winner is €500 with a runner up of €200; There is also a Junior Section (under 16) 1st Prize is €200 and runner up €100 and of course the Perpetual Cup for the best dressed Window display in town.

Please note: Over the coming weeks letters will be dropped into businesses seeking contributions towards the Parade and the organising committee thank the Community always for the warm welcome they receive and their financial support. The Parade costs in excess of €4000 annually to host with Insurance and Bands contributing greatly to the costs, however St Patrick’s Day in Boyle has over the years always proved to be a most memorable and enjoyable day out for all the family and the organising crew promise that 17th March 2017 in Boyle will be better than ever before

Town Twinning

Twin towns or “town twinning” are a form of legal or social agreement between towns to promote cultural and commercial ties.
Years ago our Chamber of Commerce twinned Boyle with Saint Witz – a small town in northern France. While a number of Chamber members visited SW and received well-flagged visits in return, the association between us seems, dare I say, ‘dead in the water’ to all but ‘maybe’ a special few
I don’t know if our current Chamber or Town Team are open to suggestions from non-members. Whatever … I suggest that a Town Twinning between Boyle and our good neighbour Carrick-on-Shannon would be of benefit. A joint Marketing Alliance could then follow to promote the region as a whole. We are all aware that each town has attractions – they have things we don’t and visa versa.

A hotel for Boyle – Albergo Diffuso Alliance

20170126_123919L/R: Minister Damien English, John Mulligan, Alison Clarke O’Shaughnessy, Maire Paul, Margaret Mulligan

Damien English, Minister of State with responsibility for Housing and Urban Renewal at the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, last week (Thursday 26th.January) hosted a meeting with representatives of the Boyle Albergo Diffuso Alliance in his office in Dail Eireann. The project already has the support of Roscommon County Council as well as a critical mass of property owners in the town.
The ‘Albergo Diffuso’, or scattered hotel, is an Italian concept that has successfully revived over forty towns in Italy to date and has been copied in Croatia, Switzerland and Mexico. In essence, it consists of a high-end hotel with a central reception area and with the hotel rooms scattered throughout various buildings in the town centre, over shops and in empty houses. Minister English had already expressed a keen interest in this Boyle initiative, seeing it as an effective way to provide key tourism infrastructure in heritage towns while helping to preserve town centre buildings and put them back into use. The meeting was arranged to brief the Minister on Boyle’s readiness to implement this project once support from government is forthcoming, and to show that the town is well placed to develop a pilot model that can be applied across rural Ireland.
The Minister said that Boyle appeared to be a perfect town for an Albergo Diffuso project, given its intact historic streetscapes, its valuable tourism and cultural hinterland, and the lack of an hotel in the town. He thanked the group for their valuable input and added that he is committed to find a way to make this project happen for Boyle.

Boyle Local Area Plan 2015-2021 [read here…]

Issues noted in the Roscommon Co Council Boyle Local Area Plan 2015 – 2021, Effective from 21st December, 2015 may well influence some future developments in Boyle.
Boyle Strengths: Strong opportunities for a tourism base in the town. Boyle is well placed to benefit from a healthy tourism industry;  Historical value and heritage value of Boyle; Evidence of some new businesses opening – for example new restaurants; Chris O’Dowd has helped put Boyle on the map and has increased the number of visitors to the area; Redevelopment initiatives are a positive for the town – for example the rejuvenation of the Court House.
Boyle Weaknesses: No hotel; Many shops closed and shop fronts are not appealing; Too many residents are going out of the town to shop and work; Approach roads to the town need to be improved; Footpath provision need to be improved and extended; General streetscape improvements are required; The tourism opportunities are not being fully explored; Lack of linkages between Lough Key Forest Park and Boyle.
