In preparation for a quarter of a million euro re-development of the river Shannon west bank and quay wall, the Ballyleague Village Renewal and Tidy Towns committee will hold a community table quiz fundraiser on Friday night next January 18th at 9pm in St. Faithleach’s GAA clubhouse.

“We would like to invite every home and every business in the Roscommon-Longford area to come along and support us on the night” the Chairman of the committee Gerry Thompson said this week.

“We know that dozens of people use the river bank for walking, cycling and other leisure activities every day of the week and we really need these people to come out now and show their support for the re-development that further enhance the area they are using.

“The plans of the proposed work will also be on display and it is important that everybody has an input so please come along.”

The Tidy Towns committee is entirely voluntary and only this week took down the Chrstmas trees and Christmas lights in the Ballyleague community after a year when they also managed to get an increase of thirty points in the national tidy towns competition - winning a best endeavour award in county Roscommon.
