March 12, 2013 (FPRC) -- Ennis Town Council hosted the event in recognition of what it described as the “significant contribution Joe Boland made to County Clare and especially to the development of Ennis between 1960 and 1983.”

Mr. Boland was lauded for his direct role in spearheading the development of a strategic plan for industrial and residential development in the town, the delivery of major drainage and water supply schemes, the provision of the De Valera Library, and the implementation of a major and continuous Housing Programme which led to the replacement of derelict sites with open spaces and carparks in the town centre.

Addressing last evening’s Civic Reception, Mayor of Ennis Cllr. Peter Considine stated: “During his term as County and Town Manager the Town of Ennis experienced a period of enormous change. It was under Joe’s stewardship that every opportunity was grasped to ensure that Ennis would be able to become what it is today, one of the largest towns in the region with a proud economic, social, cultural and political history which is a legacy which we must protect.”

The Mayor continued: “While the extension of the Ennis Urban Boundary took place in 1989, Joe also played an important role, prior to retirement, in preparing the ground for its successful conclusion. The extension of the Boundary for Ennis was significant in terms of income for the town. We must continue to build on this achievement so as to ensure that the Town of Ennis remains the capital of County Clare in terms of tourism, economic development, community engagement and active citizenship.”

During his time as County and Town Manager, Mr. Boland has also held the position of Chairman of Lisdoonvarna Fáilte Ltd from 1967 – 1983, Director of Syntex Ireland (Roche Ireland), Trustee of Clare Social Service Council (now known as Clarecare) from 1968 – 1983, Director of Craggaunowen Project from 1972 – 1984, and Director of Rent an Irish Cottage Ltd from 1976 – 1978.

“Each of these projects have developed and continued to make significant contributions to the local economy, tourism and community infrastructure,” Mayor Considine added.
