Duck race on Boyle River Saturday

You still have a chance to buy a Duck for the Fundraising Duck Race, which will take place on the Boyle River on Saturday, May 30th.

The ducks will be released from the bridge on Bridge Street at 1pm  

 Ducks cost €5 each – 1st Prize, €500, 2nd Prize €200 and 3rd €100.

Cards are distributed around the town so please support and BUY A DUCK!

 Boyle Courthouse Project is nearing a stage where Roscommon County Council will provide the Boyle Courthouse Development Committee with a Lease. Planning permission for necessary works has been granted and obtaining a lease will mean that access to complete these works can commence. The courthouse building will have the necessary building works completed to provide a premises that will incorporate a new tourist attraction. The attraction will further enhance the tourism product in Boyle.  

 However, before the lease can be signed, there is a requirement that relevant insurance policies must be in place together with some other documents , such as fire safety statements etc. which unfortunately all cost money.  The committee need the funds generated from the Duck Race to pay for these policies to get through this stage so we can progress to stage two.
