Together with the lighting proficiency of Nigel & Tom Cleary and the expert direction of our Production Team this nomination is so well deserved. The venue of St Joseph’s Church greatly enhanced the Visuals and once again a sincere thanks to Fr Gerry and the Pastoral Council for allowing us stage our 2017 show in our Parish Church.

Five new solar powered light are to be installed in the Pleasure Grounds in Boyle in the next number of weeks. The lights have zero running or electrical costs. The project was identified and led by Boyle Town Team who are working in association with Roscommon County Council towards installation. Funding was obtained by the Team by way of a grant from the RAPID fund. This was complimented by additional funds from a charity car wash undertaken by Boyle Fire Service. It is hoped the lights, which will be installed in key areas of the grounds, will add to the security of the area. The Pleasure Grounds is a key part of the Boyle 2040 plan. The Plan is currently being finalised and further details of this and a number of other exciting Town Team projects will be announced in the coming weeks.”
