The near completed streetscape works in Roscommon will ensure the town is accessible to all.

That's according to Independent Councillor Kathleen Shanagher who says those who face mobility issues will now find it much easier to navigate without obstacles.

She hopes the town centre will become a safe place for pedestrians and cyclists with drivers encouraged to park in the nearby car parks.
