That is a great idea. I had 10,000 euro set aside in last years budget for such projects and I will check to see if funding is still available for your idea.
Also, I have been assured by the Town Clerk that the plaque I had requested through notice of motion for the 1798 monument on Market Square, will soon be erected.
I have argued for an annual event to commemorate 1798. One that would revolve around the participation of our local civic leaders and representatives from the French Embassy. On Monday, I'll will be asking that councillors support a motion to invite the french President to Castlebar, to join in our efforts to commemorate 1798.
