Great news this morning with confirmation of a futher €175,000 in CLÁR funding heading for County #Roscommon
The €175,000 for four new projects is in addition to €324,000 allocated to eight projects last month. 12 groups in towns and villages across Co Roscommon will now benefit from CLAR funding announced by Minister Heather Humphreys.
Congratulations to the #Ballagh
community hub who have won maximum funding of €50,000 to upgrade the parochial hall in the village. This
means a new heating system, rewiring and insulation of walls and attic and will be a big boost to the local area. Funding has also been allocated to #BealachNua
to upgrade the building and surrounding area.
CLÁR funding is also a way for sports clubs to look at how to make their clubs more accessible for everyone in the community of all abilities especially older people who may enjoy coming to games or events.
GAA Club have also been successful with €50,000 for disabled parking spaces at the pitch and create a viewing area.
GAA club are also adding disabled toilets and improving general accessibility.
I would like to acknowledge the regeneration teams within Roscommon County Council who work with community groups to develop our outdoor spaces in towns & villages across the county.
And at the core of these projects are volunteers within these groups to drive these ideas so well done to all.
This funding announced by Minister Heather Humphreys is part of ‘Our Rural Future’ policies to bring investment to rural areas and make the West a great place to live for families with access to amenities in our own local areas.
