Muintir na Tíre has been allocated funding by the Department of Rural and Community Development to install Carbon Monoxide alarms. This programme is aimed at persons who do not have existing alarms and do not have the resources to install alarms themselves. The Roundwood & District Community are applying under the scheme for the Roundwood – Moneystown area. The group can assist in installing the alarms if the need arises. The alarms are battery powered so installation is straightforward. If you are elderly, have a disability or are unemployed and do not have a carbon monoxide alarm in your home and wish to apply please call 086 8055040 on or before Wednesday 6th of November.


The Roundwood and District Community Council are registered to administer the senior alert scheme which provides grants to elderly people towards the provision of personal alarms in the area. The personal alarm offers reassurance to allow independent living, safe in the knowledge that you can quickly be in contact with a family member or neighbour in the event of an emergency. It provides security and peace of mind. If you would like more information, please give call 086 8055040
