Roscrea’s Enhancement Plan Committee and North Tipp Co. Co. gathered recently to launch the Roscrea Painting Scheme 2014 and the Roscrea & District Events Guide 2014.

Chairman of the Enhancement Committee, Brian King said all involved in the Enhancement Committee, particularly the marketing and promotions sub-committee, were very grateful to North Tipperary County Council for their support on both initiatives. Brian said that the painting scheme in Roscrea was a great success last year and he welcomed its return. Marion Carey from North Tipperary County Council explained that the scheme this year is open for Main Street, Castle Street, Rosemary Street and Rosemary Square. Marion said that the Council was very impressed with how well supported the scheme was last year.

Nuala O’Connell from North Tipperary County Council was also present at the launch. Nuala explained how committed the Council is to supporting Roscrea and implementing as many elements of the Roscrea Enhancement Plan as possible. Nuala explained that the scheme encourages communities to upgrade their buildings to enhance their character and appearance while at the same time aiming to reinforce local pride in the area for residents, businesses and visitors. Further information about the painting scheme is available from Marion Carey on marion.carey@tipperarycoco.ie (067)44677 or Brian King, bking@roscreacu.ie. In relation to the Roscrea & District Events Guide 2014, Brian King said that the guide is one of many initiatives being spearheaded by the Roscrea Enhancement Plan Committee. Brian explained that a sub committee was put in place to deliver on this project and in this regard he had great praise for the commitment of his fellow committee members, Cllr Michael Smith and Dick Conroy.

Brian thanked Andrea Patterson at Walsh Printers for her continued help and support and he thanked Tipperary County Council and our County Manager, Joe McGrath for funding this project.
