DEVELOPMENT OF CARRAROE AREA
Carraroe and District Regeneration Association has written to each elected county councillor and TD requesting individual meeting be arranged with our committee executive to discuss an agenda of issues requiring assistance into the future. We will keep the community updated on progress.
Cadra advises people walking or working around our community to wear HiViz to ensure you can be seen. We will have a supply available free next week from any member of committee.

Work has commenced on a new project adjacent to Martin Reilly Motors which when completed will enhance that entrance to Carraroe.

We also want to thank Martin Reilly for his generous donation of €500 to assist us with our activities.

CARRAROE TIDY TOWNS
We will be working in the future to have this addressed to ensure the IBAL report in the future does not have to highlight this again ‘Approach from Junction at R287: Grade B This route leading into Sligo was somewhat littered with sweet papers, fast-food wrappers and coffee cups very much in evidence. The road surface and markings were in good condition.’.
We have noted this road into Sligo is highlighted and reduced our grade which is a disappointment. We will be examining how we can prevent this location reducing our ratings in the future.
Work is progressing on this development and is now reaching Molly Fulton’s which will allow our residents the opportunity to walk and cycle safely to this location. We are now working to have the next phase developed to join up with the Ballisodare Walkway/ Cycle way.
CARRAROE NATIONAL SCHOOL
Congratulations to all involved in the achievement of Grade A. in the European IBAL Survey. The following is the comment of the adjudicators ‘ One of the most striking features of this school was the level of planting. Clearly it is a much loved and respected environment – the grounds were in very good order with colourful planting and greenery throughout. The paving area directly outside the school grounds was also in very good condition. Scoil Eanna Cearra Rua was a top-ranking site throughout.’
