“Working Together”

We sincerely thank you for your on-going support in raising funds for the refurbishment of our community centre.  Over the past year, there have been many fund raising activities including cake sales, céilís, Croagh Patrick climb, raffles etc. and we acknowledge and thank you for taking part and contributing to these.  Our last letter highlighted the prevailing “Working Together” theme that makes Cloonacool such a warm and special community.  In the letter we made an appeal for funding from each household and had an overwhelming response with €11,896 in contributions received to-date.

Your donations have made a significant difference to the development of the centre and have helped to provide the building blocks for future generations in our community.  For this and for your support in all ventures we would like to say “Thank You”!

The centre is now open for business.  In the months ahead, there will be Card Games, Summer Festival, Music and a Christmas Gathering and many other events that bring us together as one community.  The newly refurbished centre is for you and all of us to share, so we hope that you can take part in future activities and suggest new ideas for the use of the centre.  The centre will be available for private family functions as well as community gatherings.

Thank you for taking ownership of this special project.  We wish you many years of entertainment, education and happiness in your new community centre.  Thank you for being part of this special piece in Cloonacool’s history, let us continue to work together and enjoy the success!
