BoyleSports’ three offices in Wexford town, The Faythe, Whitemill, South Main Street, and one in Enniscorthy town are among their 278 retail shops throughout Ireland that will close at 8pm on Wednesday, in response to the ongoing efforts to limit the spread of Covid-19,
Although there has been no official guidance in relation to bookmakers, BoyleSports believes,
“the decision to close shops is in the best interests of our staff, our customers and Irish society. BoyleSports has committed to continue to pay all staff during this closure period.”
Conor Gray, chief executive of BoyleSports, said,
“BoyleSports has a responsibility to protect its staff and its customers. Like other Irish businesses, we also have a responsibility to support the Government’s social isolation policy. The closure of our shops supports this policy.”
BoyleSports’ decision to close its Irish stores was taken after consultation with other Irish bookmakers, who are also expected to close their shops.
