Shop No 100 for top Irish bookie
John Boyle, managing director of Boylesports, celebrates the opening of the company's 100th store on Capel St in Dublin yesterday.
It was a landmark day for Ireland's largest independent bookmaker, which was founded in 1982 by managing director John Boyle.
The growth of Boylesports is one of Ireland's business success stories.
In 1989, five outlets were opened in Drogheda and in 2002, a further 14 new shops were opened.
Over the next three and half years from 2003 to 2006, 43 shops were added to the Boylesports portfolio.
