Is County Enterprise Town Boyle ‘out in the cold’ ?

Roscommon County Council has allocated 1.5 million euro for the development of two centres, Roscommon and Monksland with funds also set aside for hot-desking facilities throughout the county for small businesses. It’s hoped that a working group will meet early in the new year to progress the Roscommon project, which will see over a 10,000 square foot development in Roscommon with broadband speeds of up to 3 gigs.
We may wonder if the soon-to-be-vacated 9,000 Herald Building on St. Patrick Street was considered as a base for the Roscommon project. Last month, Boyle was declared the Roscommon County Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town award winner. It will be interesting to track BOI and Roscommon Co Council follow ups …

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.
