Corduff Raferagh Community Association Committee

Corduff Raferagh Community Association Committee would like to thank everyone who attended the official launch of CoRa Hub & the Corduff Raferagh Community Website last Friday evening (10th Feb) by Minister for Rural & Community Development and Minister for Social Protection, Heather Humphreys.  Those in attendance had the opportunity to view the available CoRa Hub facilities and a number of enquiries have been received in the past couple of days.

The new website corduffraferagh.ie has information on all groups, clubs, schools & churches in the area, with contact detail for each.  The News page of the website will be updated weekly, so for those who do not use social media, the News page will give details of up and coming events and much more. We are aware that computers, tablets and smart phone can provide challenges for some people, so if anyone would like assistance on how to access or navigate the website, we are holding a third familiarisation session next Tuesday morning 21st from 10 am – 11 am in the Community Centre.

A full separate report on the launch will be posted on the website during the week.
