Roscommon Village Part Of Rapid Covid Pilot Programme

It's reported the trail tests are being carried out on all 150 residents.

The entire 150 residents of a Roscommon village have been Covid tested for free, as part of a pilot programme for rapid results testing.

The Sunday Times reports that the church car park in Lecarrow, near Lough Ree, has acted as a pop up centre over four Saturdays.
