Help strengthen “the Roscommon family” this Sunday

Club Rossie is assisting Roscommon County Council with a new project on how the county can best link in with our ‘Roscommon Diaspora’.

Our ‘Diaspora’ is made up of those members of the wider Roscommon family who no longer live here but have moved somewhere else, either in Ireland or overseas. That wider Roscommon family is made up of people who have their roots here going back a few generations as well as those who have left much more recently. The GAA is a focal point for all communities, particularly for the Irish abroad, and Club Rossie is delighted to be involved with this project.

The Council wants to set out a plan to strengthen ‘the Roscommon family’ socially and economically and they want to get the thoughts of Club Rossie Members who are living in other parts of the country or abroad or Members who have family living abroad.

As part of the process they are inviting such Members to attend a “Breakfast Workshop” in Hannon’s Hotel, Athlone Road, Roscommon Town this Sunday, March 18th, ahead of our Allianz Football League game against Cavan. The workshop will begin at 10am and will include breakfast. It will be sharp, structured and focused and will conclude at 12:30pm. Attendees will also receive complimentary tickets to the game.

This will be an important event for our County and its people and Roscommon County Council believe that many Club Rossie Members have an important contribution to make.

If you’d like to attend please email bcoyle@roscommoncoco.ie or call 090 6637235 ASAP. If you normally bring someone else with you to the football they may wish to participate on a Guided Historical Walking Tour of Roscommon which will run alongside the Workshop. If you are bringing a guest who would like to go on the tour you can mention that when making contact.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday,
The Club Rossie Team

PS Sunday’s game against Cavan throws in at 2pm. It’s a crucial match and the team really need your support to continue their bid for promotion.
