Roscommon Living Laneways

Roscommon County Council Regeneration Team and its project partners wish to bring people and a diversity of urban functions together in central places which, for most of their existence, have been places of public interaction and commerce. Roscommon town has a number of interesting heritage and tourism assets which have the potential, as part of the overall revitalisation of the town, to attract more significant tourist numbers to the town which is located within Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands. The full project seeks to once again create a functionally diverse, connected and people friendly sequence of town centre spaces which frame and celebrate the architecture, and to create a town centre that existing and future residents can take pride in and which visitors are drawn to. Back streets and laneways link residents and visitors toward the town centre and the ‘Living Laneways’ project aims to provide visual enhancement to the laneway links approaching the Main Street and Market Square.

The Living Laneways will mark the beginning of a public art laneway trail programme for artists to respond creatively to public laneways and to the history, story and community of Roscommon Town. The commissions are also intended to provide opportunities for dialogue and participation with the local community. Representatives of various groups in the town will be involved in selecting the artworks. Through an Open Call process, artists will be required to provide a detailed project proposal.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
