Update 29th January

Main Street, onwards and upwards...


Traders on Main Street tell me that the One Way System greatly impeded development of this very important Boyle shopping street. Several shops closed, though some of our excellent traders remained in situ. Over the past few months there is a palpable return-to-former-glory. Today marked another rung of the ladder upwards for the street when Patricia's Home Bakes located to a space within the upwardly mobile Boyle Country Meats.
• Boyle Country Meats is one of our jewels with its fabulous meat displays, instore oven-ready meals, everyday convenience store items, and now Patricia Feeney's Home Bakes.

Sinead O'Connor not joining Sinn Féin

Singer Sinead O'Connor has decided not to join Sinn Féin following a meeting with party officials. The Wicklow-based performer had previously declared her intentions to become a party member last month and said she wanted the entire Sinn Féin leadership to step down and wanted to reframe what it means to be a republican. "They persuaded me that I'd be bored s***less, pretty much waiting for them to get into government before being able to help generate any national discussion on the issue of ending partition," Ms O'Connor said.
