Works are underway for a new installation at the Mockmoyne / Chapel Street junction. Concrete plinths will support the old Blackstone Single Fly-Wheel engine that generated Stewarts DC electric power for Boyle until ESB AC power became available in 1965.

Water Charges Protest March tomorrow

Tomorrow's scheduled peaceful, non-political Protest March will offer all an opportunity to voice concerns about our parasitic water supply, proposed water charges and the Boil Boyle Water situation. Online posted comments include "Enough is enough, we can't and we won't pay"
Protesters will assemble at the Council/Royal Hotel Car Park at 1.30pm for the 2pm Protest March that will coincide with similar Protests nationwide.
• Former minister for communications, energy and natural resources Pat Rabbitte has described claims that Irish Water will be privatised in years to come as a red herring. The Labour TD said no government "with its head screwed on" would seek to sell the utility to private enterprise. Speaking on RTÉ's Morning Ireland, Mr Rabbitte said not enough time was allowed by the Government for the smooth establishment of Irish Water.

Irelands Toughest Muckers Sunday, 2nd November

Irelands Toughest Muckers will attract entries countrywide. The event is a strength and endurance challenge set over a distance of 10 km with 15+ obstacles for competitors to overcome. The next event will take place on Sunday 2nd of November in Lough Key Forest Park, Boyle. First wave will off at 12.00 noon and there will be 10–15 mins given between each wave of competitors.
There will be food and drink at the finish line, music and entertainment after the event while waiting for all competitors to finish. The fun will continue in Boyle and every competitor wearing a wrist band will get a discount on drinks in some of the local bars.

Boyle GAA

The Club will hold a very special fundraising challenge game on Saturday week 8th Nov at 3pm to mark the retirement from the playing of competitive football by Cian Smith. Cian is the proud holder of an All Ireland medal with Roscommon’s Minors of 2006. The game will feature a very attractive line up of players in Abbey Park: a Boyle selection managed by David Casey and a selection of well known players from throughout the County.
