Today people in Monaghan have their say on how to spend almost half a million euro

Today people in Monaghan will have their say on how they want almost half a million euro to be spent developing Rossmore Park.

Around €450 thousand euro has been set aside to develop the park, which is located just outside of Monaghan town, and which is the former estate of the Rossmore family.

The Rossmore estate has played an important part in the history of Monaghan, and today the park boasts a number of walking trails, 8 lakes, fishing facilities, scenic views and historic landmarks.

An open consultation will take place in The Market House later today between 3pm and 9pm for the public to give their views on the future development of Rossmore Forest Park as an amenity area.
