Submissions deadline is approaching

With the deadline looming for receipt of submissions to the Athlone Boundary Review, drop-off points aimed at facilitating people who wish to support the campaign are located in various outlets around the county.

  In many towns and villages in the county businesses are inviting people to sign submissions.

  In Casey’s Topaz Roscommon, and in conjunction with the Roscommon People, members of the public can sign a submission in protest against any boundary change. These will be collected by the Roscommon People and forwarded to Westmeath County Council.

  A shop in Roscommon town, opened last weekend by local councillor Kathleen Shanagher, will be open for collection of submissions from noon to 6 pm on this Friday and Saturday. A number of other county councillors have launched similar initiatives.

  Wednesday, January 27, is the deadline for submissions, which are to be lodged with Westmeath County Council by 5 pm that day.
