A few Community organisations i.e. Bruree G.A.A., Rockhill Bruree Sportsfield, Rockhill Bruree Community Hall and St Patricks National School have come together to organise a major Community Fundraiser for the following projects:
- An Astroturf area and Hurling Wall to the rear of the National School.
- A Walkway around the Community Sportsfield.
- Replacement of the flat roof to the front of the Community Hall.
These projects will be done on a phased basis. The initial stage is to raise funds to have base funding available to apply for grants under various programmes e.g. Leader Programme, Sports Capital Scheme. The project of replacing the flat roof in the Community Hall is a more immediate problem. During the early months of this year due to heavy winds and rain the roof was damaged and is leaking in several places. It needs to be replaced as soon as possible as otherwise the interior work will be ruined.
We have all endured the upheaval and hardship caused by Covid19, but it has also reminded us of the importance of being part of a Community and of Community Facilities where we can meet up and enjoy each other’s company. Thankfully we appear to be emerging from this terrible experience and there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
