1,000 People in Roscommon Say No to the Plastic Straw

Thanks to the work of 7 young members of Kilteevan Tidy Towns, one thousand people in Roscommon have signed a pledge not to use plastic straws.

The organisation believes that by working together, the community can be part of a solution, to some of our environmental problems.

Kilteevan Tidy Towns, Roscommon Co Council and Plastic Free Roscommon. worked together on this project to begin the process to rid  Roscommon from single-use unnecessary plastic items.

The project drew to a close at a Tidy Towns meeting in Kilteevan Community Centre on March 5th when Sophie Coen and Éabha Dolan proudly handed over the signatures to Marguerite Croghan (Secretary) and Hugh Brennnan (Treasurer).

Major credit is due to all members of the team;

James Mooney, Kevin Fannon, Kieran Coyle, Sophie Coen, Éabha Dolan, Adam Lalwani, and Liam Egan.

We look forward to their next project which is already hatching in Kilteevan!!
