Citizen’s Charter

On Sunday 12th May, a group of hardy walkers will enter Roscrea on their way to Leinster House Dublin. They are walking to highlight the plight of austerity and to promote a new Citizen’s Charter, that members developed. We would like to personally invite members of the public to come down, meet with us and enjoy the craic and maybe walk a few miles. Full details of the walk are available at and we have an informative blog. If you would like to join in please send an email to
