Boyle Town Team criticised over delay to ‘scattered hotel’ study

Boyle Town Team has been strongly criticised for not yet publishing its feasibility study on the ‘scattered hotel’ that’s planned for town.

The team is exploring the concept that would involve refurbishing some property owners’ accommodation to Bord Fáilte-approved standard.

The project was boosted last year when Boyle received €100,000 for its enhancement under the government’s Town and Village Renewal Scheme.


A Galway consultancy firm was appointed to assess whether ‘scattered hotel’ project would be viable in the town and has completed its study.

But Boyle community activist John Mulligan is annoyed its findings haven’t been made public.

Brian Nerney, the chairman of Boyle Town Team, insists the study will be published in February.
