What makes a true Rossie?

The answer to this could extend to volumes the size of the Book of Kells. How do people show their Roscommon roots?

“How do you keep your Roscommon link alive?”, is a question we put out on social media some time ago, and it was fascinating to see the response. People shared the post far and wide and we received some fabulous images of how people maintain their link to Roscommon, even if they are far from home.

These images are captured in the beautifully produced Roscommon Bound – A Global Rossie Strategy. This coffee table style book includes images from across Roscommon, so no matter where you come from in Roscommon, you will have an image that is no more than 10 miles from your home place or maybe even your actual homeplace.

This coffee table style book will be available to purchase for your loved ones at home and abroad from the following outlets:

  • Molloy’s Bakery, Abbey Street, Roscommon Town
  • Roscommon Town Museum, the Square, Roscommon
  • Benny’s, Castlerea
  • Una Bhán, Boyle
  • Cruachan Ai, Tulsk
  • Derryglad Folk Museum, Curraghaboy
