Local Independent councillor and chairperson of the Suck Valley Way Development Co-Op, Anthony Waldron, has confirmed that the Suck Valley Way Conference will return to Roscommon in March of next year.

Speaking to the Roscommon People this week, Cllr. Waldron said the event would continue to promote the county’s outdoor amenities, tourist attractions and commercial opportunities.

“We’ll be taking a new and fresh look at it for next year. It’s all about promoting what we have to offer here in Roscommon and making the county a more attractive place for investment,” he said.

“I firmly believe if we can get the promotion of Roscommon tourism and our outdoor amenities right then business and enterprise will follow”.

Cllr. Waldron went on to acknowledge the support of sponsors such as Harmac, Kepak Athleague, and Connacht Contractors, without whose support, he said, the conference wouldn’t be possible.

Concluding, he highlighted the attraction of living, working and doing business in Roscommon.

“I know, for example, there’s further potential at sites such as Harmac and that they are very happy with their location in Castlerea,” he said.

“There’s something happening out there (across Ireland) and there’s a renewed interest in life in the countryside.

“We know that Roscommon is a great location to do business in, with relatively low property prices, great schools, a clean environment and outdoor amenities and that’s what the Suck Valley Way Conference will continue to highlight,” he concluded.
