Latest edition of   4U available now   The third edition of 4U is now available to young people throughout County Roscommon (and parts of adjoining counties).    The 4U magazine is the brainchild of Roscommon Lions Club and the magazine is produced as part of the Club’s Suicide Awareness project.    The publication is produced on a voluntary basis by members of the Lions Club including its ‘youth wing,’ i.e. local secondary school pupils, for whom the experience is hopefully very rewarding.    Indeed Roscommon Lions Club’s Leo Club was recently nominated for a Foroige Citizenship award because of the 4U magazine project.    * Any enquiries about getting copies of 4U, just contact Paul at the Roscommon People on 090-6634633 or email paul@roscommonpeople.ie Glory, glory Man Utd?   Letter we spotted in last Monday’s Irish Independent:  Dear Sir,  Any Irishman, woman or child who confers to Man Utd or any other British soccer team the ‘we’ or ‘us’ status should be humanely put down.  T.
