The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP), is working across Ireland to reduce disadvantage. SICAP is open to people and groups from different walks of life. Westmeath Community Development runs the SICAP programme in County Westmeath.
The decision is due on March 9, but in the run up to that, February 23 sees the visit of members of the Ard Comhairle to Mullingar, and prior to that, an important meeting setting out what the town needs to do to give the effort that final – and hopefully effective – push, takes place at 6.30pm on Thursday February 7, at The Greville Arms Hotel.
“We want as many people as possible to come – members of the public, businesses, residents. Everyone,” says Deputy Willie Penrose, who is on the Fleadh bid team.

Feasibility Study for Pilgrim Way along the Shannon Erne Waterway Consultative Workshop 05/02/19 Athlone
Feasibility Study for Pilgrim Way along the Shannon Erne Waterway
You are invited to a Consultative Workshop
on 5th February 2019 6.30-9.00pm in Athlone Radisson Blu Hotel
In late 2018, West Limerick Resources, in association with 13 local development companies (LDCs) including Westmeath Community Development and thirteen local authorities along the entire Shannon –Erne navigation, commissioned SLR Consulting and Alan Hill Tourism Development to investigate the feasibility of developing an internationally attractive, iconic Pilgrim Way along the Shannon Erne waterway. The area under consideration embraces a 20km wide corridor from Kerry-Clare-Limerick on the Shannon Estuary northwards through the Shannon lakes to the Shannon-Erne Waterway through to the Erne system in Fermanagh-Donegal.
The aim is to develop an iconic international ‘Pilgrim Way’ based on the rich early Christian and Viking heritage of the Early Medieval period in Ireland. Well known ecclesiastical sites include Scattery Island, Iniscealtra (Holy Island, Clare), Clonmacnoise (Offaly), Quaker Island (Lough Ree), Boyle Abbey (Roscommon), Devenish Island (Lough Erne) and the iconic pilgrimage site at Lough Derg (St Patrick’s) in Donegal, among others. Many more, lesser known sites are included in the overall analysis for a total of more than 100 sites in total.
