Pride of Place

We had our visit from the Pride of Place judges on Tuesday – right in the middle of the power cut – but thanks to locals and the CE team who rallied around with a portable gas cooker and a generator, we were able to carry on with the presentation and, most importantly, the refreshments afterwards.

The weather was wonderful, so after a presentation and a question and answer session, and some really lovely impromptu speeches from Senator Maura Hopkins, Councillors Paschal Fitzmaurice, Orla Leyden, Kathleen Shanagher and Tony Waldron, and Senior Executive Officer of Roscommon County Council, Pat Murtagh, praising Lisacul and its community, we were able to take the judges on a tour of the village, passing the Church of Christ the King, Eire Og GAA, and the Ball Alley, with stops at the Fort in the National School, Kilruan Cemetery, Willowbrook Glamping, and the Golden Mile.

We can now share theĀ Presentation and theĀ Supplemental Information with everyone – we hope you enjoy it, and thank you to everyone who helped with the writing, especially Denise Deery of the Ladies Club and Tom Coppinger of the Development Company.
