‘The Story of Rosemount,’ a local community tourism trail in the streets around the Rosemount and Glen areas of the city, is set to be launched next month.

Glen Development Initiative (GDI) &CRAFT (Outer West Cultural Group) have been successful in gaining Community Cohesion funding from the Housing Executive to create the tourism trail.

Speaking about the development of the project, Lisa Moore Maguire, Physical Regeneration Development Officer, said: “This is a truly exciting project, the story of Rosemount will see historical information panels erected in streets around the Rosemount and Glen areas.

“These boards will highlight the origins of Rosemount, as well as tell about the rich history of sports, education and industries which built these communities.”

Adrian Kelly, Manager of GDI, said: “This project is one of a number of projects we are undertaking to try and tackle the ongoing issues the community are dealing with around mews lanes in the area.

“By installing these panels on the alley gates we hope to regenerate the local area and reduce illegal dumping.

“We hope this will become another tourist attraction for the city and also allow the local community to see the changes which have occurred in the community over the past 100 years.”

Housing Executive Area Manager, Eddie Doherty, is more than happy that GDI and CRAFT received Housing Executive funding. “It’s always great to work alongside our local community groups, and this project will enhance the lives of everyone living in the Rosemount and Glen area of the city. The information boards will also provide a new interest for history buffs and help residents take a sense of pride in their area.”

The Story of Rosemount will be officially launched on Thursday, March 19, with the panels expected to be erected over the coming weeks.
