Community Hub & Website Official Launch

This Friday evening, 10th February at 7.30pm, the Community Association Committee are looking forward to welcoming Minister for Rural & Community Development and Minister for Social Protection, Heather Humphreys to the Community Centre to officially launch the new CoRa Community Hub and the Community Website.

All members of our Community (individuals, groups, clubs and business) are invited to attend this special evening where you will get an opportunity to see the available facilities in operation.

CoRa Hub provides Hot Desk/meeting/conference facilities for individuals, groups or businesses for work or study purposes and the new Community Website will enable our community, near and far, to keep up to date with the latest News and information related to all aspects of the community.

These new facilities for our community would not be possible without grant aid from the Community Centres Investment Fund and the Connected Hubs Scheme through the Department of Rural and Community Development

We look forward to welcoming everyone on Friday evening 7.30 pm – 9 pm.
