Laneways of Roscommon Town

F42 VR98

Roscommon Living Laneways

‘Living Laneways’, laneway trail where artists can respond creatively to public laneways in Roscommon Town and to its history, story and community.
Roscommon Co Co & 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. The full project seeks to 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 which 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 considers laneways as places traditionally occupied by skills, trades and guilds. This commissioning programme aims to provide visual enhancement to the laneway links approaching the Main Street and Market Square.

1 Laneway, already complete with 2 more underway are part of the final element of the Roscommon Town Main Street and Market Square Public Realm Project funded under the 2018 URDF and developed by Roscommon Co Co Regeneration team working with GKMP Architects, artist Rhona Byrne (who developed the Living Laneways concept) and a multidisciplinary group appointed to implement the innovative architectural and artistically influenced Covered Civic Space in Roscommon Town.

The Programme will continue to grow through Creative Ireland support.
