Inadequate public lighting in Rooskey village was a topic raised by Cllr. Tom Crosby at the March meeting of Roscommon County Council. Cllr. Crosby stated that the output from the existing street lighting throughout the village of Rooskey is totally inadequate and a major cause of concern to the business community, residents and the general public. The poor output from the lighting leaves the village in an almost dark state and creates a very bad image for this very popular village on the River Shannon. ‘It is also a major handicap for promoting local business in the area. The inadequate lighting also gives cover for vandals to operate, a number of incidents have taken place in the village in recent times, including homes being broken into, causing major distress to the owners and the community in general.’ Cllr. Crosby was informed by the Meetings Administrator in writing that as a result of his questions, the ESB has been requested by Roscommon County Council to investigate the adequacy of the existing public lighting in the village and the Council is now awaiting a report from the ESB.
