Great news this morning! I have received confirmation of over €650,000 in funding has been awarded across County Roscommon under the new Community Recognition Fund.
Launched back in January, the fund aims to support the development of community infrastructure and facilities in recognition of the contribution being made by communities across the country in welcoming and hosting significant numbers of arrivals from Ukraine and other countries.
