Boylesports are without a doubt the largest independently owned bookmaker in all of Ireland. They first graced the scene back in 1982 when it was discovered by owner John Boyle and consisted of a solitary betting shop in Newry, Northern Ireland. Popularity surged over the years and by August 2004 had 77 stores. 2 years later the company celebrated the opening of their 100th shop and now Boylesports has grown to over 1700 employees and has 210 branches in Ireland alone.
The headquarters are located in Dundalk, County Loth and Boylesports offer their customers something slightly different as they have a telephone service allowing customers to call in their bets, with a service aptly named “Fon-A-Bet”.
