Tickets available in Eight ’til Late."   Accessible footpaths in town A caller to Roscommon People this week pointed out the need for the completion of tactile footpaths in the town. The female caller welcomed the provision of tactile footpaths at Casey’s roundabout, but said that, while tactile paving is in place at one side of the road at Golf Links Road, the other side remains unfinished. She also expressed the hope that the work done at Casey’s roundabout could be done at the town’s other roundabouts, as it makes life much easier for people with access issues, such as the elderly, wheelchair users and parents with buggies.   Recent deaths Please pray for the repose of the souls of Annie M. Keane, The Walk and Kilmurray, mother of Kathy Dunne, The Walk; Margaret Fetherstone, Ballinapark, Donamon, mother of Teresa Kelly, Rathbrennan.   Liturgy meeting There will be a meeting of the liturgy group in St. Coman’s Club tonight (Thursday, March 15th) at 7 pm.   St. Patrick’s Day Masses On St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, there will be Mass in the Sacred Heart Church, Roscommon at 8.30 a.m., 10.30 a.m. and 12.15 pm.
