Invitation to get involved

Oyster Island and Knocknarea by Martina Butler

The past few months have seen us meet with several relevant bodies and voluntary groups as well as formalise our existence as a voluntary group under the name “The Rosses Point Coastal Way Group”.

We also recently began conducting face-to-face surveys with people already using the route. Their ideas and feedback, along with the marvellous contributions from Realt Na Mara National School pupils, will be incorporated into next week’s two public workshops.

Either one (or both!) of which you are warmly invited to attend!

Public Workshops – the community helping to decide

The purpose of these workshops is to facilitate the local community determine what aspects of the local natural, historical and cultural heritage should be included on the panels.

As you can imagine, given the rich history and exceptional beauty of Rosses Point, perhaps our biggest challenge will be whittling down and fine-tuning the topics to be included on the panels. With this in mind, each workshop will bring us through a series of cooperative, democratic tasks designed to help us collectively identify, sort and prioritise the topics considered most important by the community.

So, if you would like to become actively involved in developing this innovative and exciting project, you are warmly invited to come along to one (or both!) of the following workshops:

Scout’s Den (beside Sligo Yacht Club), Rosses Point

Tuesday 8th September 7:00pm – 10:00pm

and again

Wednesday 9th September 2:00pm – 5:00pm

Both workshops will be identical so you only need attend the one that suits you best (but are also welcome to both). Weather permitting we will explore the route directly so bring comfortable outdoor clothing and footwear. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. We hope you can join us and play a part in what should be rewarding, productive and sociable community events.
