We are delighted to announce that Murroe Wood Park CLG, the body established to oversee the development of the Murroe Field Project, has been awarded €1000 from the Communities Facilities Scheme by the Department of Housing, Planning & Local Government. This funding will help provide seating along the community walkway.
Murroe Wood Park is also awaiting the outcome of three other very substantial grant applications which would provide the remaining funds required to complete Phases 1 and 2 of the Field Project. Please keep your fingers crossed for a positive result!
While preparations were underway for the judges’ visit for the Pride of Place competition in June, we asked adults and children in our community if they felt proud to live here and why. We created 2 survey booklets from the responses we received – one for the children’s responses, and one for the adults’. These we gave to the judges during our presentation.
With just over 2 weeks to go before we learn the outcome of our nomination, we wanted to make these booklets available for everyone to read online. Regardless of the verdict on November 26th, we have plenty to be proud of and to celebrate in this little community.
Here are the links for the survey. Hopefully they will work! Thank you to everybody who took the time to submit a response.
