RWN recently nominated our chairperson Tara Farrell to the board of the Roscommon Community Forum. We are delighted to announce that she was successful not only in achieving a seat on the Forum, but was also elected within to serve as Chairperson.
With recent and upcoming changes in the funding and organisation of community development projects and also the reallocation of governance powers to local governments, it is more crucial than ever that strong advocates for grassroots community work step forward to ensure a seat at the table. Tara’s leadership has been an asset to Roscommon Women’s Network and we see this election as a great achievement for community work in Roscommon.
