Members of Shannonside Heritage in Lanesborough/Ballyleague are in discussions with a representative of Lanesborough Massachusetts on collaborative projects between the two Lanesboroughs. On Monday last, members of Shannonside Heritage lunched in the Abbey Hotel in Roscommon with Stephanie Abrams, a well-known radio talk show host who hails from the US Lanesborough. Stephanie and her husband were in Lanesborough last year for the annual heritage week. Also present at the Roscommon meeting were local councillors Tom Crosby and Adie Farrell. At the meeting, members of Shannonside Heritage made a presentation of a photographic memento to Stephanie and there was an exchange of artwork produced by local schoolchildren in both countries.
