Frenchpark features in Roscommon Herald

This week Frenchpark features strongly in an article about the efforts of local towns in the County in the Tidy Towns Competition… their on going progress is noted with some lovely photos of a few locals. Check it out in this weeks Roscommon Herald, the first week of the new tabloid version.


To date there has not been a great response to putting on a play this autumn/winter.  It can take some considerable time to practise and get a play together and as we are well into the month of September now, we would want to be starting soon if there are enough interested people.  A suggestion for a 3 act play has been recommended ” The Maiden Aunt” by www.Jim Keary playwright who is  from Co Westmeath which is very funny. However, considering most may never have acted before or be a bit rusty maybe a 3 act is a bit daunting to start.  He has a few one act comedy plays too.

The hall is newly renovated and it would be a great past time for the autumn.  Could anyone who is interested please let Marion Noone know or drop an email to  Thanks

A.G.M. Town Development

The A.G.M for the Town Development will take place on Monday September 26th at in the Village Hall.  A new committee needs to be formed to continue the good works of the group. The Tidy towns and Town Development work hand in hand to help gain funds and grants for projects in the village which assist Tidy Towns and help make this a nice place for us all to live.  Please come along if you are interested.

What the Tidy Towns 2011 had to say about Frenchpark

It was a pleasure to note that most, if not all, derelict properties in Frenchpark were neatly presented and this is a lesson to all TidyTowns participants, take a bow Frenchpark! The combination of the artwork programme and the treatment of derelict premises, sites and walls is most effective. Well done on your participation in An Taisce Litter Free Zone programme and good luck with your project at Eden House which is to be entered in the Dulux Let’s Colour project.

Results.. Tidy Town Results….

The wait is almost over as the ‘Final Countdown’ gets underway to the TidyTowns Awards Ceremony on Monday, September 5th next!

Excitement levels are building all across the country and this year, the ceremony will take place in The Helix Theatre, DCU in Dublin.

The results of this year’s competition, which is sponsored by SuperValu, will appear here on immediately after the ceremony and all entrants will receive their report and a results book in the post the day after the ceremony.

Many thanks to the Tidy towns committee for their hard work and commitment and to the fas workers.  The village is a credit to you all.  Taken by Marion Noone This guy is my favourite newcomer to the village…

Drama Group

Autumn is here, the schools are re-opening and the long nights will soon be upon us.. How about resurrecting the drama group.  A play for November in the newly renovated hall sounds like a good idea to me.   Can we spread the word lets see what kind of uptake we get.

Joe McDermott

Congratulations to Joe McDermott,  staunch Rossie supporter for increasing sales of the Independent newspaper locally last week, it made a very fine photo.. well done Joe.
