Rosommon County Council

  • Following advice from the Health Services Executive, Irish Water and Roscommon County Council have issued a Boil Water Notice on the Grangemore Public Water Supply to protect consumers.

    This notice only applies to consumers on the Grangemore Public Water Supply and Ballinameen Camlin Group Water Scheme. Water must be boiled before it is consumed.

     A map of the scheme, with a list of townlands and the group water scheme affected are available on www.water.ie and www.roscommoncoco.ie . Affected areas are Croghan, Ballinameen, Ballymore, Killarght (County Sligo), The Plains and surrounding areas.

    Once boiled the water is safe to consume.

    Customers are asked to boil water before consumption including the washing of teeth, making of ice and in the preparation of food that is not cooked. It is imperative that people adhere to the boil water notice while being reminded that once boiled, the water is safe to consume.

  • Roscommon Town is to get a facelift next year, after councillors this week approved a new plan for the regeneration of the town centre.

    The Market Square and Main Street Public Realm Enhancement Project will see a one-way traffic system on one side of the Bank of Ireland at the Square in Roscommon Town, with a 2-way traffic system on the other side.

    A shared space for markets and public gatherings will be put in place at the Square, and it's hoped tenders for the project will be issued early in the New Year.

    Cathaoirleach of the Roscommon Municipal District, Councillor Orla Leyden has been telling Midwest News about the new plan for the town centre.
