The North Cork Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) this week approved a tranche of funding to community and voluntary groups in North Cork through the 2020 Community Enhancement Programme. 

The Community Enhancement Programme is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development under the guidance on Minister Heather Humphries, TD. The programme provides capital grants towards the maintenance, improvement and upkeep of community centres and community buildings.

Welcoming the allocation of funding, North Cork Fine Gael Councillor John Paul O’Shea said “I am delighted to see these deserving groups being funded here today. The volunteers in each of these groups work so hard to benefit their village or town. I look forward to seeing these improvements over the coming weeks and months”.
