€730,000 to be spent on Roscommon Arts Centre upgrade

Roscommon Arts Centre is set to be upgraded in 2018, at a cost of up to €730,000.

Roscommon County Council is building a two-storey extension to the centre in the county town, with a new gallery on the ground floor and a workshop overhead.

The interior of the existing premises will also be renovated, with the front porch, box office and bar area to be remodelled, while the car park will be upgraded.


Part 8 planning permission was granted last month and Pat Murtagh, a senior executive officer in the council’s community and enterprise department, says the works are on track to start in the new year.
