Four hundred rural households across Roscommon are being surveyed about current supports in the county to determine what’s needed for the future.
Commissioned by Roscommon Leader Partnership, the survey will cover both farm and non-farm households in the Electoral Areas of Dysart, Breedoge, Rockhill, Oakport, Cloonygormican, Kilglass North, Artagh South and Ballydangan.
