The much anticipated launch of the Roscrea Enhancement Plan took place in the majestic surrounds of the Roscrea Castle Complex, Roscrea on Friday (May 31).

After eighteen testing months the Chairman of the group, Brian King welcomed everyone to the launch. Mayor Michael O’Meara was in attendance to help officially launch the plan. Joe McGrath (County Manager) said that the launch of the Roscrea Enhancement Plan was of huge significance for Roscrea. Brian King spoke of all the work that went into the plan and the dedication that was needed to bring the plan to fruition.

In a change with tradition the first people thanked were the local media for their support in showcasing the proposals. Brian King reminded us that at the launch of the Roscrea Enhancement Plan process, he said that the Roscrea Town Enhancement Plan will be “owned by the people of Roscrea, it will be driven by the people of Roscrea and its success or failure will ultimately depend upon the people of Roscrea”.

In the intervening months the Chairman said that the ‘Stakeholder Committee’ has done everything it can to help ensure that the first part of this ideology is achieved. Brian King informed us about the many meetings have taken place with clubs, organisations, local businesses and most importantly the general public to help ensure that this plan is truly owned by the people of Roscrea. The Chairman said that now that we have our plan in place the process of change and implementing the objectives of the plan can commence.
