Boyle’s entry in the Bank of Ireland Most Enterprising Town Programme has been submitted by Boyle Town Team in association with Boyle Chamber of Commerce.
The Most Enterprising Town is a new pilot initiative to find the most enterprising town in County Roscommon. Bank of Ireland’s Enterprising Town Awards are being run as part of a pilot in four counties this year. The aim of the Awards is to promote enterprise by bringing business and community groups together to showcase the spirit of enterprise in their town.
The Bank of Ireland Enterprising Town Awards are being organised in collaboration with four County Councils and their economic development teams in 2016 in Mayo, Roscommon, Laois and Kildare.
The judging panel will meet with business, community and public sector groups in the nominated towns and decide who will be selected as the respective County Winners and will also decide the Overall Winner across the four participating counties.
The prize amount for the County Winner is €3,000, with the potential to be awarded an additional €10,000 as Overall Winner. In addition, the judges will, at their discretion, nominate up to eight specific initiatives for merit award funding from a total prize fund of €8,000.
Chairman of Boyle Town Team Brian Nerney said the Town Team and Chamber had worked closely in submitting the application and eagerly looked forward to the judging day which will take place in Boyle on November 30th.
“We intend to be well prepared to show the judges the many reasons why Boyle should be selected as the Most Enterprising Town” said Brian.
” Boyle Town Team are delighted to be at the forefront of a number of positive initiatives which are in the planning stages for Boyle at present, which will all enhance the town as a place to live and do business in and build on the work being undertaken by other local groups whom we work closely with” according to Brian.
” These are exciting times for Boyle and with the assistance of our lead organisation – Roscommon County Council and other state assisted agencies – Boyle Town Team are optimistic that the planned positive developments will lead to a better future for the town.”
“Winning this award would be another string in our bow to show that Boyle is open for business and planning for the future” concluded Brian.
