The investment of €5m in upgrading the visitor attractions at Strokestown Park House will create up to 350 new jobs in the region over the next 5 years, states local TD Denis Naughten.

The announcement this morning (Wednesday) of a major upgrade of facilities at Strokestown Park House will see visitor numbers increase by 50,000 over a five-year period which will act as a major driver of tourism employment throughout County Roscommon. 

“This investment builds on securing the Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands tourism brand for our region which I supported and promoted as a member of the Government,” stated Denis Naughten.

“The announcement is the first in a number of significant announcements in the region which are set to develop the local tourism offering and bring about a far greater boost to local employment.”
