A John McGahern library and reading room is to be established in the former Garda station where the McGahern once lived in Cootehall, Co Roscommon.

It is expected the new feature will welcome more visitors to the area.

The McGahern family will be invited back to Cootehall this December when Minister of State Brian Hayes will, on behalf of the Office of Public Works, hand over the building to the Cootehall Community Development Group.
