Following a series of meetings that have taken place over the past several months in Manorhamilton, Lurganboy, Dromahair, Newtownmanor, Glenfarne, Kiltyclogher, Rossinver and Kinlough a community text alert system for the North Leitrim area will be officially launched in the Bee Park Community Centre on Thursday night at 8pm.
When Thursday night’s text alert system takes place in Manorhamilton it will mean that the entire North Leitrim area will be protected by the system since the Drumkeerin text alert area has been in operation for sometime now.
The text alert system that will be started on Thursday night will be for the Manorhamilton, Mullies, Lurganboy, Glencar, Glenboy, Ballyboy, Rossinver, Kiltyclogher, Glenfarne, Newtownmanor, Killargue, Ballinagar, Dromahair, Askill, Kinlough, Tullaghan and Glenade districts.
The North Leitrim Community Development Network and the Leitrim County Community Forum have worked in conjunction with An Garda Siochána and Muintir na Tíre over recent months in the planning and establishment of the new North Leitrim text alert system.
Many people in the North Leitrim area have already signed up and paid their €5 fee to participate in the new North Leitrim text alert system. Anyone who would like sign up for the new text alert system can do so at Thursday night’s launch and afterwards at anytime he or she wishes.
Everyone is cordially invited to attend Thursday’s official launch of the new North Leitrim text alert system in the Bee Park Community Centre at 8pm . For all attending the launch refreshments will be served afterwards.
