One day in January 1984 while at work, Joan Tuohy, Belinda McCauley and Adrian Moore discussed the possibility of starting a Musical Society in Boyle. Joan placed the following notice in the Roscommon Herald on Friday 20th January 1984 to see if there would be sufficient local interest in the idea.
A meeting was held in the Forest Park Hotel on Tuesday 24th January 1984. A substantial number of interested people turned up.
That night, Boyle Musical Society was born and the first committee elected.
Michael Gilmartin & Belinda McCauley
Liam Cahill, Breda Dodd, Emma Dodd, Mardette Lynch, Mary Ryan, Jenny Sloan
The meeting discussed several show possibilities. It was eventually agreed that “The White Horse Inn” was to be the first production. Liam O'Callaghan was appointed as show director.
Rehearsals commenced straight away and the show was staged in St Joseph’s Hall for five nights commencing on Sunday 29th April 1984.
Thus started Boyle Musical Society. Every year since then we have staged a musical show.
Our Society is alive and well today.
