Fianna Fáil in Roscommon are gearing up to welcome members from across the region and country to their Regional Conference taking place on Saturday, June 10th in the Abbey Hotel in Roscommon Town.
The conference, which will commence at 12.30 pm, is being organised by Ballintubber native and Roscommon Ógra’s Chairperson Seán Óg Higgins and Ógra’s Connacht/Ulster Organiser Tom Cahill, who is a native of Balinasloe, in conjunction with Roscommon Ógra and the public representatives in the area.
The theme of the conference is ‘Reviving Our Rural Communities’ and it will feature many high profile speakers including Éamon Ó Cuív, Anne Rabbitte, Stephen Donnelly, and Roscommon-Galway TD Eugene Murphy, who will open the conference.
Three panel discussions will take place throughout the day: ‘Brexit: The Challenges for Ireland’, ‘Overcoming the Challenges Facing Rural Towns and Businesses’, and ‘Opportunity and Employment: Bringing Life Back to Our Countryside’.
Attendees will be treated to a Summer BBQ in Castlecoote Lodge at 8 pm, organised by Roscommon Senator Terry Leyden. Senator Leyden said a shuttle bus has been organised to transport people from the Abbey Hotel to Castlecoote, and will return them later that evening.
