posted in: News | 0

Hi all,

Most of you will be aware of recent improvements made to the public amenity area at Portrunny. However, some of you may not be aware of the various community initiatives and projects undertaken by our committee members on your behalf over the last 12 months including our new website (, community arts day, tidy towns competition, Portrunny Heritage Trail, new slipway and many more.

Since our initial public consultation in 2016, our committee members have also been engaged with various agencies including Roscommon Co. Co., Waterways Ireland and Inland Fisheries Ireland regarding the long term plan to develop the amenity including plans to develop council‐owned site opposite the slipway in Portrunny. With the support of funding from Roscommon LEADER Partnership and Roscommon Co. Co. an independent specialist consultancy firm Rethink Tourism successfully tendered to complete a detailed feasibility study on our behalf into our proposals for the site.

This study is currently underway and as part of this process Portrun Development Association and Rethink Tourism plan to convene a public consultation meeting on Tuesday 20th February @ 8pm in Hannon’s Hotel, Athlone Road, Roscommon.

We invite you to come along and have your say as this study is being undertaking on behalf of you and our local community.

We look forward to seeing you there.


Portrun Development Association CLG.
