Boyle is on the move …

Like many towns, Boyle has business closures, but on balance we are winning and today note a number of property sales in Boyle Town Centre as well as a relocation on Shop Street, preparations for a new business on Bridge Street, a pub reopening imminent, the regeneration of streetscapes, promised work on the Royal Hotel for Roscommon CoCo, the Courthouse project, the Cycleway, planning permission submissions and more …
Back in the early years of this century I wrote “Boyle is a great town in which to live, work and play”, and that dear reader holds true on this day in October 2019

The Crescent Bye Laws – no apparent progress!

Map

July 2019: “Following several years of lobbying (and pleading), Roscommon Co Councillors passed the new bye laws for trading on the Crescent and other site in the county. Roscommon councillors voted by a majority of 15 to 2 to bring in casual trading laws for the county after the issue was first mooted more than a decade ago. The bye laws will apply to all towns in the county and cover issues like goods that may be traded, designated trading areas and trading times, insurance requirements and parking of vehicles.”
October 2019: Surprise, Surprise! Despite the passing of the bye laws Roscommon CoCo, Boyle’s Chamber of Commerce and Town Team do not appear to have actioned them and called for policing them
