Roscommon Histroy

BOYLE, DRUM, DRUMBOYLAN, FRENCHPARK, KILTEEVAN, KILTOOM, MOORE, ROOSKEY, VIOLET HILL.

The guilds listed above are all active at the present time. They are all very active and have their own histories and cover many varied interests from the Arts to the day to day interests of all of us. Also, they more or less cover the county from Drumboylan Guild in Carrick on Shannon in the north to Moore Guild which is just six miles from Ballinasloe in County Galway.

The guilds listed below are only some of the many in the County starting with the establishment of Kilmore Guild in 1948. The spread was rapid after that but more or less confined to the north of Roscommon till the 1952 when they first founded the Roscommon Federation E.M. O'Leary as the first predident.

These guilds, like many others in rural areas of Ireland, disbanded for various reasons but immigration and relocation of people to the cities for work purposes were the main reasons.

DYSART, ROSCOMMON TOWN TAUGHMACONNELL, CORRIGEENROE, FOUR ROADS, BALLAGHADREEN, CASTLEREA, FOUR MILE HOUSE, KILMORE, LOUGHGLYNN, STROKESTOWN.

All our members would love to see some of these re-open and if you live in one of these areas get in touch. On a practical level it makes more sense if there are twelve of you within reasonable distance who could get together to form a new guild and you will get all the assistance we can give you. Your welcome will be warm and heartfelt in all of our present guilds if you want to come along and observe a meeting once or twice just to get the feel of things.
