Ashbury Residents Association held an awards night to honour five unsung hero's of Roscrea. These people have given up their valuable time to help, aid and give hope to the communities of Roscrea. It's not often peolpe like this get recognised for the work they do, many many hours of work done unknown to others and all for the better good of people and the areas they live in. They richly deserve this honour.

Tommy Murphy, Patricia Gleeson Award Winner, Mary McNamara
First to receive an honour was Mrs Bridget Feehan of Kennedy park who worked tirelessly for her community of the Park and is an inspiration to all that followed her. Next up was Mrs Patricia Gleeson who has done untold work on and off the scene through her work with SVP. James Byrne was next to take to the stage to receive his honour, the work he does with his hard working committee say's it all, the Trojan work taken place in Glann Glas is second to none. The hard dedicated work of Mairead Ramsbottom who was the community liaison worker for the local Tesco chain came to collect her honour and the last person to collect their honour was our own Matthew McNamara, who too has done untold work in his community of Ashbury.
