The best wishes of the community go out to Boyle woman Rose Mc Tiernan in the County Roscommon Volunteer Awards this Friday night.
Rose has been nominated in the “Older Category”.
Her citation reads:
” A resident of Boyle, Rose was nominated secretary of Church View Housing estate in 2001 and has been a support network for all the existing and new residents living within the estate.
To date, Rose ensures the yearly summer camps take place and encourages the parents to participate and join the kids for the month long camps.
Rose was the main driver of a campaign for funding to establish the installation of a children’s playground and running track on the grass field of the estate enabling children to play in a safe and fun environment.
Rose also facilitated an environmental refuge skips day for all the householders.
She was also the voice and representative of the residents to the Council getting paint free of charge for all the residents of the estate enabling householders to improve the appearance of their homes.
This also gave the residents a sense of pride in their community.
To this day, Rose at 73 years of age, is the rock for all the residents of Church View Housing estate”.
