Leo and the management at Wing Hung Chinese Restaurant are to be congratulated. They have recently completed a totally new and beautiful interior decor change to their very popular restaurant by the river in Boyle Town Centre.
Wing Hung adds a classy element to Boyle's growing number of "Where to Eat" premises. Recently Marty Guihen opened 'Open Table' on the Crescent. 'Bruno's Restaurant' and The Bazaar Coffee & Internet' joined the circuit with our well established Clarke's Bar & Restaurant, Margaret's Cafe, our Indian Restaurant, Tai Chi Court and Troy Deli on Shop Street.
Roma Grill on Bridge Street and Mirela's, Main Street remain deserved favourites with extensive burger, battered fish and tasty homemade chunky chips on their menus. The Stonehouse Cafe at Boyle Bridge, Five Star Italian in Supervalu and Aunty Bee's Tearooms on the grounds of King house are firm favourites for quality, pleasant surroundings and ever-friendly service.
Last night Gerry & Phil Emmett reopened 'An Craoibhín' on Elphin Street following its 2014-style kitchen enlargement. Reports quote Gerry as saying "The sparkling new kitchen is now bigger than the bar/restaurant".

  1. If you're a fan of MMA fighting, boxing, wrestling or anything along those lines this movie is for you! This is a story about two brothers who are separated in their ten years by an alcoholic father. One goes on to become a teacher the other ends up going down a very unsuccessful path. Neither of them have seen each other in years until an MMA fight opportunity presents itself and they're both financially needing to win. It comes down to the two of them fighting each other in order to win a million dollars. I won't spoil the ending and tell you what hairball. It's s nail biter and leaves you on the edge of your seat until the very end! Tuly a great film! Would definitely buy again!
