The local elections are only 3 months away and there are major changes this time around in the Boyle area.
Historically the 26 County Councillors included 4 from Boyle but under new changes introduced by Minister Phil Hogan, the Boyle electoral area will come in under a new structure or municipal district referred to as Boyle but it will include the greater Ballaghaderreen area.
While the new “Boyle” municipal district will have 6 County Councillors, the number of Councillors in the County in general will drop from 26 to 18.
So far 11 candidates have indicated that they will stand for Election for the Boyle area in May.
A number of others could be added in the coming weeks.
