EU funding for rural communities 21 November 2013

The Rural Development Programme has helped promote a range of economic, social, cultural and environmental projects aimed at developing a prosperous and environmentally sustainable rural community

 

That was the message from Rural Development Minister Michelle O’Neill as she officially opened new and refurbished community facilities at Carntogher Community Association, Maghera.

The Association was awarded over £550,000 by SWARD, in response to three separate applications to (1) extend the conference centre, (2) provide a Multi Purpose Cultural and Heritage Space capable of seating 200 people and (3) provide two self catering units.

Speaking after a tour of the new facilities Minister O’Neill said: “These facilities will provide opportunities for local people to experience a broad range of activities from arts and crafts to sports, music, performing arts, health and culture. Such diverse experiences will enhance the lives of all those living in the area and contribute to life–long learning and good community relationships.”

The Minister added: “Investment through the Rural Development Programme in projects such as this greatly assists in promoting rural tourism and attracting investment, whilst providing much needed facilities for all local rural groups.”

Niall O’Kane of Carntogher Community Association said: “These projects will underpin the sustainability of a wide range of community projects within our rural bilingual community. They will provide us with a major opportunity to foster and develop the creativity and prosperity of the local community and our young people in particular.”

The projects are run by Carntogher Community Association and is based at An Carn, Tirkane, Maghera. The projects are supported by SWARD, Ciste Infheistíochta Gaelige, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and UCIT.
