Mayor sends picture of Roscommon newspaper
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce, Editor

Mayor Mario Guerra sent over this cool picture of the Roscommon Champion newspaper building, the hometown newspaper of Roscommon, Ireland. If you look closely, printed over the entrance are the words “The Local Paper.”

Guerra is in Ireland this week along with members of the Downey Sister Cities Association to commemorate Roscommon becoming Downey’s newest sister city.

We’ll have a full wrap-up of Guerra’s visit once he returns.

Interestingly, Downey also had a newspaper named the Champion. It opened in 1888 and eventually became the Southeast News.
