I wish to pay tribute to the Community Field Project team and compliment them on their foresight and professional manner in which they put together this project.
I was delighted to come on board with this project and to work with the Community Field Project Team to ensure this funding was delivered.
The funding will provide for the construction of a new community building for Murroe-Boher and the surrounding community.
