Down through the ages, many, who carried a ‘grά’ for Clones, inspired influence, aspirations, decisions, and developments that still support and harness the social and economic fabric of our community today. When times got dark for the town, it was the genetic resilience of our community that kept the town alive. Consultation with our community was pivotal and to the fore of the development of this plan.
