Here is an extract from the Tidy Towns Competition 2013 Adjudication report - “ You mention in the application of the importance to the community of tourism and the spin off benefits to visitors and tourist through your work. It is nice to think that you are making your village a good place for both residents and visitors to enjoy. Rooskey village has great potential and you are becoming very strategic in your work focussing in projects and action that will make a big impact in your community. Keep up this good work”
