The Department of Rural and Community Development will hold a public consultation workshop in Laois tonight.
The event will take place in the Heritage, Killenard Portlaoise from 7- 8:30pm as they look to create a new rural development policy for Ireland.
The new rural policy will be forward-looking, with a 5-year time-frame, and will focus on strengthening our rural communities and economies.
This workshop will seek to obtain the views of people living and working in rural Ireland on the challenges and opportunities facing them and their communities over the next five years, and actions required to help rural Ireland realise its full potential.
To register, visit www.gov.ie/drcd. Walk-ins will also be welcome at the door.
