Corduff Raferagh Community Association

Corduff Raferagh Community Association are constantly striving to provide a comfortable and welcoming place for all members of our community and beyond.  In the past forty years the building has been maintained and updated to ensure it has the required facilities for the community to promote the social, economic and cultural welfare of the area.

Our newly renovated conference room and Hot Desk facility will provide working or study space for local business or individuals who would like an option from working from home.  This year we will begin the long awaited installation of a Lift and new Wheelchair accessible toilets, making the building more user friendly for all abilities.

During Covid our building was a secure environment for Shanks Engineering to conduct social distancing Safe Pass, Hoist and Health and Safety training and remains a space for all business to use for meeting and training purposes.  Teagasc discussion groups are held regularly, this forum not only provides a space for farmers to discuss agricultural developments and issues but also provides a social connection for farmers who are feeling isolated.

Many groups and families have used the facilities to celebrate parties, such as anniversary, birthdays, post wedding parties, including members of the Filipino community.  The regional Faith & Light group hold their annual Christmas party in the Community Centre.  Over the years classes and events have been organised to teach and enjoy different formats and styles of dance and music.  The Community Centre provides a venue for the local schools & preschool to hold concerts, plays and extracurricular activities.  

2 Hot Desks

Charity events organised by locals to gathered much needed funds for projects close to home or abroad such as Carrick Cancer, Climb with Charlie, Niall Mellon Trust, Haiti Earthquake Fund, Lourdes Fund and the Irish Cancer Society Pink Run to name just a few, have generated a wonderful community spirit.

CE employees who work in the Community Centre gain experience to develop skills which are transferable to many part time and full time jobs, recently Cormagh Development Company Ltd held a Mental Health information day for their CE workers in the Centre.

The Community Association Committee are always eager to introduce new activities, training, classes or events which will benefit all members of our local community.  So if you have any ideas you would like to share please come to one of our meetings or contact a committee member.
