For the past number of months a Boyle TM steering committee have been diligently organising the sale of tickets for a Mega Draw Fundraiser to meet the cost of a new set of Christmas Lights for Boyle. The lights have been erected all over town and look fabulous.
• Congratulations to Claudia Cretaro, winner of the first prize of 500 litres of home heating oil sponsored by Stewarts Oil, Boyle.
• Following the draw, Siobhan Gallagher thanked all of her fellow committee members with special note of thanks to Stephen Bohan, Brian Kelly and Cecil Draper. She also thanked the 35 or so volunteers who braved cold nights to erect the lights, all of the sponsors for their contributions, the media, and everyone who supported the draw by buying draw lines.
• Boyle TM is a Boyle chamber of Commerce initiative.
