We are delighted to finally be able to unveil the design for the Murroe Wood Park Community Building and landscaping. We had hoped to run a public information session last year, but….pandemic. Hopefully this will give you all a flavour of what’s about to come. Check it out!

This morning we bid adieu to our portacabin at Murroe Wood Park. Our painted lady has moved to her new abode with the Limerick Field Archery Club in Murroe. We wish her a safe journey and hope her new owners get plenty of use out of her!
I am delighted to announce that Minister Michael Ring has allocated a massive €3.8 million under this year’s Rural Regeneration Development Fund to the Community Field Project in Murroe- the highest allocation of funding in the country.
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.
The Community Hall will include sporting facilities, meeting rooms, office space, a community café and an enterprise space.

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!
It’s finally happening, folks: Construction of Phase 1 of our Community Field Project got underway this week. This phase seeks to put in place our all-weather pitch and community walkway. All going well, these facilities should be ready to go by September.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us get to this point, particularly through the various fundraising events over the past few years. And while we’re on the subject, the legends involved in the recent Strictly Come Dancing event will be presenting their cheque for the monies raised to the Murroe Wood Park board on Friday, July 7th, in the Valley Inn. More info to follow.

A quick update on the Murroe Community Park Project:
The Field Project is progressing very well and we are now close to going for tender for the Astro Turf Pitch. It is planned to build both the astro pitch and the walking track together, as part of Phase 1 of the overall project.We hope to have contractors on site at the beginning of May and have this stage of the project completed by August.
We wish to acknowledge and thank Limerick City & County Council and the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, who have made this possible through the provision of €500,000 in Hinterland funding. We also thank IPB Insurance who have awarded us €10,000 towards completion of the walking trail through the 2016 Community Engagement Fund. And, of course, thank you to everyone who has organised and supported our ongoing fundraising events to get this massive project off the ground. Hope to see you all at ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ in April!
