Waldron calls for movement on decentralisation



‘Only 80 of 230 jobs delivered’

At a collaborative group meeting held in Lanesboro/Ballyleague on Saturday, 21st of September – to discuss the recent job losses in the area – Cllr. Anthony Waldron in his speech to elected members from both the Longford and Roscommon areas as well as community groups from both regions, addressed the issue of decentralisation.

  Cllr. Waldron called on the Government to complete the implementation of the decentralisation process previously agreed for Roscommon town. The number of staff destined for Roscommon under the original plan was 230, however only 80 were relocated there.

  Cllr. Waldron said that a building was provided at a cost of €15 million and it is still, many years on, awaiting the remaining complement of staff.
