Our journey has been one of dedication, collaboration, and a shared commitment to the betterment of our community. Reflecting on the past year, our Team has experienced significant expansion and growth to a Team of 16″. 

Ciaran went on to mention some projects the team undertook during the year including “The ORIS landscaping works on the 2nd Gate of Rockingham and the completion of the cycle path trackway restoration between the first and second arch.  To highlight and acknowledge other activities that have taken place in the last year, the placement of bicycle racking in a number of locations around town, the work completed on the Calisthenics park thus far, the exploratory works on 2nd Gate Lodge restoration, work on making the Boyle 2040 plan more bitesize, the collaboration with the County Council on a number of projects including upcoming new town signage and the support the Town Team gave to opening of ‘An Rioga’”.

“As we look ahead to the coming year, our focus is on delivering on our community development plan developed in partnership with Roscommon County Council. This plan represents a roadmap for the future of our town—a future characterized by progress & prosperity. We hope that our application for ORIS measure 2 funding will be successful”.

“Our priorities for the upcoming year are clear: we will prioritize project realization, we will prioritise subcommittee efficiency, tangible results, community engagement, foster partnerships with key stakeholders and implement initiatives that promote sustainable development. In a nutshell thinking bigger and delivering quicker.
Let us not forget that none of this would be possible without the tireless efforts and unwavering support of each and every member of our Team. Whether you have been with us since the beginning or have recently joined our ranks, your contributions are invaluable, and your dedication is deeply appreciated”.

“At this point it would be remiss if I did not highlight Cllr John Cummin’s contribution to the Town Team, John will be stepping down at the next local elections. We have been very fortunate to have John in his role on the Town Team and his ability to seamlessly navigate between the needs of the town and the resources of the county council have been invaluable to us and he leaves very big shoes to fill. I’m looking forward to John continuing to contribute to the Town Team”.

“In closing, let us reaffirm our commitment to serving Boyle and it’s environs with passion, integrity, and compassion. With unity of purpose and a shared vision for the future, I am confident that we will continue to make meaningful progress towards Boyle 2040 and create a brighter tomorrow for all who call our town home” concluded Ciaran.
