On Thursday 14th June 2018, Portrun Development Association attended the Cathaoirleach's Creative Citizenship Award 2018 in Aras an Chontae, Roscommon. The Cathaoirleach's Creative Citizenship Award 2018 aims to highlight the diversity of arts, culture and heritage in County Roscommon.
We are very pleased to have received the Overall Winner in the Community Group Category for our short film entitled 'Our People, our Heritage and Our Culture through a Creative Community'. The short film was produced in September 2017 under the Creative Ireland Programme 2017 -2022. This is a wonderful short film involving the local community at Portrunny showcasing the natural beauty of the environment which we call home.
A massive thank you to Roscommon Co Council and in particular to Cathaoirleach of Roscommon County Council - Cllr. Orla Leyden for her role in creating the Cathaoirleach's Creative Citizenship Award 2018. We would also like to acknowledge the assistance of everyone who took part in the making of the film and to Shane Giblin - Lifetime Videos for his expertise and guidance in producing the film. Well done all!!
