Nine Projects in Kanturk/Mallow MD To Benefit From Community Facilities Scheme

Nine Projects in Kanturk/Mallow MD To Benefit From Community Facilities Scheme

Cork County Council’s Community Facilities Scheme was announced today with nine local groups in the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District benefiting from a financial allocation of up to €1,000 per group for small capital projects within their community.

The Community Facilities Scheme offers Community and Voluntary groups access to capital funding in order to kick-start, advance or complete their projects. The scheme seeks to address some of the difficulties local community groups face in terms of accessing small-scale levels of funding to match their own fundraising efforts.

The organisations funded in the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District under the Cork County Council’s Community Facilities Scheme:

  • Freemount Community Development Association – Replace Floor in Community Centre – €1,000

  • Kiskeam GAA – Kitchen cooker & Washer/Dryer – €1,000

  • Castlemagner Community Centre – Catering Equipment – €1,000

  • Glantane Community Council – Street Furniture – €1,000

  • Mourneabbey Community Council – New Chairs – €1,000

  • Knocknagree Youth & Community Centre – New Chairs – €1,000

  • Bweeng Celtic Underage Soccer Club – Sports Equipment – €865.56

  • 13th Cork Kanturk Scout Group – Tents, Cooking Equipment & Printer – €1,000

  • Mallow Search & Rescue – Diving Equipment – €1,000

Welcoming the funding, Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District Councillor John Paul O’ Shea said “these monies will come as a very welcomed boost for the nine groups involved. They all have very worthwhile projects on hand to complete and this funding will go a long way in this process. I want to wish them well over the coming months as they carry out these projects”.

The 2017 Community Facilities Scheme is funded by the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and local Government with support from the Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) and the Municipal Districts of Cork County Council.
