Castleconnell Community meeting aims to Put the Unity in Community
To advance the next phase of actions set out within the plan the community of Castleconnell is invited to a Castleconnell Community meeting to be held in the Castle Oaks Hotel on Tuesday, November 26 at 8 pm. The village of Castleconnell was out in force during a Three Session Workshop held in association with Ballyhoura Development CLG last year.
The nature of the workshop was to develop the Ahane, Castleconnell & Montpelier Community Plan 2019-2023. The plan was prepared by the community, supported by the staff of Ballyhoura Development and facilitated by Paul O Raw & Associates, Niall Heenan, and Dr. Shane O Sullivan. A number of projects have been completed this year including the provision of outdoor exercise equipment at the Ferry, the establishment of a local business and trader’s group, street signage in the village center, and new footpaths, improved lighting and additional landscaping.
