News that trees are to be planted at Goff Street, Main Street and the Square in Roscommon has been welcomed this week by local councillor Paula McNamara. ‘Unfortunately they will have to be planted in containers as there are too manylines underground, lines for electricity, broadband and water, but they will be a great addition to the appearance of the town and the environment.’ Regarding the cutting down of the beautiful mature chestnut trees at Circular Road, County Manager John Tiernan has assured Cllr. McNamara that they will be replaced with similar trees in a more suitable position. Cllr. McNamara is asking the council that if any more trees have to be removed to widen roads, that they be transplanted and not cut down.
