ROSCREA’S new town centre enhancement plan will succeed or fail only if it is driven by the people of Roscrea, according to the Chairman of the Enhancement Group, Brian King.

A huge community effort is underway to ensure the success of the plan which aims to breath new life back into the centre of Roscrea. “We would not have got to this stage without the help of many people,” said Mr King. “The Heritage Council of Ireland through Alison Harvey and their financial support is so much appreciated. Our consultants for the drafting of the plan, the Paul Hogarth Company, and in particular James Hennessey and Gavin Shivers deserve our gratitude. Thanks also to Eileen Doherty who played a key role on a number of our public consultation days we say an extra Míle Buíochas. After countless meetings and workshops they have helped deliver a plan that should excite the people of Roscrea and herald a new era of growth and development for our town.”
