Speaking at the launch of the 122-page ‘Boyle 2040’ plan in King House on Monday afternoon, Senator Frank Feighan described the initiative as the beginning of a major renovation of the north Roscommon town.
“I am delighted to be here today in my home town for the launch of this ambitious plan for Boyle. This truly is a roadmap for the town, a plan which dovetails perfectly with the Government’s Project 2040 initiative. Boyle is one of the few towns name-checked in the Government’s blueprint document and I am delighted that today’s launch of Boyle 2040 will mark the beginning of a major rejuvenation of the town centre,” he said.
Senator Feighan went on to describe the plan as “the blueprint for the future development of the town” and said he believed it would form the cornerstone of the town’s revival. I am confident that this plan will become the cornerstone for the revival of the town and surrounding areas. Clearly, Boyle 2040 is a wonderful testament to the work of many people over the last number of years, not least Roscommon County Council and Boyle Town Team,” he said.
Senator Feighan concluded by highlighting the success of “one of the country’s top national tourist and visitor attractions” Lough Key Forest Park, as an example of local stakeholders working together to improve the town and surrounds.
“I believe this latest partnership between the Council, Boyle Town team and stakeholders will be equally fruitful and productive and, as a member of Government, I look forward to supporting this plan in whatever way possible,” he said.
