Euro meeting in Leitrim will discuss rural revival

Leitrim will play host to a special meeting of the European Alliance next week in an effort to focus on helping towns and villages drive rural revival in the European Union.

The meeting hopes to show the many challenges that rural towns and villages are facing in the north west and border region.

Next week’s event, on February 11th in Mohill, will also examine the importance of cross border cooperation at a crucial time as the Brexit deadline approaches.

Leitrim Councillor Enda Stenson says the staging of the event in the local region will highlight a number of issues facing the north west and border region.
