€1/4m to revitalise the towns and villages is welcome

Roscommon Galway Independent Candidate, Denis Naughten has welcomed the allocation of €1/4m by Roscommon County Council to act as seed funding to revitalise the towns and villages in the county.

“This funding, taken in tandem with the new rates incentive scheme and the supports and training available from the Local Enterprise Office, will help to establish new businesses throughout County Roscommon,” stated Denis Naughten.

“There is no doubt that our towns and villages are in need of support and investment and this has been clearly evident on the campaign trail.

“Not only must we use these funds to develop the strengths which are already there in many of our towns and villages, but we must also see significant investment in broadband infrastructure.

“I have already outlined some practical steps which can be taken that will have a real impact on the roll out of broadband to Roscommon and Galway,” concluded Denis Naughten.
