The Rural Regeneration and Development Fund (RRDF) is a commitment of €1 billion by government to be invested in rural Ireland over the period 2019 to 2027.
The purpose of the fund is to support job creation in rural areas, address de-population of rural communities and support improvements in our towns and villages with a population of less than 10,000, and outlying areas.
Initial funding of €315 million has been allocated to the fund on a phased basis over the period 2019 to 2022.
Strokestown Town Team, in association with Roscommon County Council, is bidding for RRDF funding and will be displaying proposals to the community on Wednesday 17th June 2020, from 2pm until 4pm, in the Community Centre ... please come along and see what's being planned for the future of our town.
Beautiful and historic Strokestown, a focal point of Ireland's Hidden Heartlands, is perfectly situated halfway across Ireland:
* approximately 90 minutes from the hustle & bustle of Dublin (and Ireland's Ancient East) and Galway (on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way).
* just 40 minutes from Ireland West Airport in Knock.
