A GROUP of young people from Roslea has been set up to highlight the official neglect and loss of services in the area, including the secondary school, doctors’ surgery and youth facilities.
Councillor John McCluskey said, “I am working with a group of young lads in the town here who have set up a new group called Sean Og Le Cheile.
“They have great plans for the area and are very keen to change the living conditions in the town and surrounding areas.”
Cllr McCluskey who spoke at the event on Saturday stated, “I call on Dr Anne Kilgallen to resign forthwith her treatment of the people of Roslea and Newtownbutler, along with the resultant scandalous GP service in Lisnaskea.
“I am putting a motion before the council to ask them to take legal action against the Trust and the HSCB in Belfast.”
He argued, “at this point there is just total disregard from the Trust, they are treating people with contempt and it’s nothing short of cruel and fraudulent.”
Also speaking at the event was Ulster Unionist councillor Victor Warrington, he stressed “it is important to be vocal on serious issues like this, the people of Roslea have suffered enough.
“Patients travelling from Roslea to Lisnaskea for medical appointments is a disaster, we are living with an ageing population and not everyone has a car.
“Taxi services are costly, especially when appointments don’t start or finish on time.”
