RSU and the organisers of the playpark are hoping to buy a special train for children in the town similar to that seen in the “Taste of Roscrea” every year.
t would be available to all children of the town in the park every Saturday and Sunday for at least two hours. It would also be available to different estates of the town if they were having a fun day. This train will only be available to Roscrea and after it’s purchased will be free of charge for the children. The cost of the train is €2k (€800 for the ride on mower that will pull it along and €1200 for the six carriages behind) It will be available until October of each year, and available for community activities when needed. We are asking for help from the community to make this happen. Just €1 from every household and this could be up and running. Donations can be made to the RSU Office (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10a.m-12noon and 5pm-7pm).
