Clonmore Regeneration Group has recently been successful with a number of grant applications.

 Village SOS (Big Lottery Fund)

CRG has received a grant offer of £46,950 from the Big Lottery Fund through the Village SOS programme to assist us in starting up a local community transport social enterprise. The grant will cover the purchase of a 16 passenger mini-bus, insurance & licensing, driver training and a part-time development salary. The idea behind this project is that we as a community with the help of this funding will set up a social business that will meet the transport needs of the local area and in the longer term generate an income that will go towards further community activities. Anyone with an interest in assisting in the delivery of this project should make themselves known to the CRG committee.

SWARD (Rural Development Programme)

CRG was recently approved funding of £240,000 towards the redevelopment of Clonmore Hall. At their recent AGM, the membership of Clonmore Robert Emmets GFC voted unanimously to make the ground that the current hall sits on available to CRG for the new building. This decision paves the way for CRG to proceed with the project.

The project does require that CRG funds a minimum of 5% of the building cost itself and so some fundraising will be required as part of this project. At present it is estimated that CRG will be required to raise approximately £15,000. A meeting for all interested parties will be held in January to ensure that the current plans meet the community need.
