Murphy welcomes over €1.5m in funding for community centres across Roscommon and Galway

Published on: 14 October 2022


Fianna Fáil Senator for Roscommon and Galway, Eugene Murphy, has welcomed over €1.5 million in funding to support community centres across the constituency.
 
The new Community Centre Investment Fund (CCIF) will support groups in every county to carry out refurbishments and improvements of their local community facility.
 
Grants of up to €25,000 will be provided to almost 600 groups in both rural and urban communities.
 
The funding will see improvements to community centres, GAA clubs, parish halls, youth centres, men’s sheds and facilities used by our elderly.
 
Senator Murphy said, "The Community Centre Investment Fund represents the largest single investment in community centres in decades and I'm delighted to see various groups from across the constituency benefiting from this funding.  
 
 
"Fianna Fáil in Government recognise the importance of community centres - that shared community space where people can gather to support each other, to work, to socialise, and to help to continue to develop their local community.
 
“I want to congratulate all of the successful groups who are receiving funding, which I know will benefit local communities for years to come."
