Goodbye to the Boyle Phonebox
It was the end of an era in Boyle on Saturday as the last remaining phoneboxes were removed from service.
A sign on the ‘boxes had stated that “Eircom will remove the public payphone from service on 1/3/15.”
Although their removal takes place a bit later than planned, their removal is welcome by many as they had become an eyesore due to lack of maintenance.
The popularity of the mobile phone has led to the demise of the traditional phone box nationwide.
