Valerie Duffy from County Roscommon is celebrating this week after being named Roscommon’s Most Inspirational Person at this year’s Gala Retail Inspiration Awards with Virgin Media. Valerie’s extensive and inspirational work within Roscommon’s various community groups have earned her the title of Inspirational Person in this year’s awards.

The local woman is a volunteer with multiple community groups including Moore Community Council, Moore Community Playground and Camcloon NS Board of Management, and has been a cornerstone in securing thousands of euro in funding for various projects. The community now boasts a playground, a refurbished community hall and a much-needed play area in one of the local schools, which Valerie played a vital role in achieving.
