Funding has been announced for a number of Boyle groups and organisations under the 2021 Community Enhancement Programme.
The 2021 Community Enhancement Programme was launched in May 2021 with funding of €4.5m to provide small grants to local community groups across the country. Roscommon received an allocation of €133,301 from the Department under the programme. The key theme of this year’s programme was supporting groups as they re-open facilities which have been closed due to COVID-19. These could include facilities such as community centres, men’s and women’s sheds, parish halls and youth centres.
In Boyle and surrounding area the following are to receive funding:
Tawnytaskin Community Centre – €1000
Boyle Family Resource Centre – €3571
St. Joseph’s Hall – €2000
Boyle Community Tennis Association – €1000
Roscommon SPCA Ballinameen – €1000
Ballyfarnon Community Enterprise Group – €1500
Ballinameen Afterschools Committee – €6000

Announcing the successful projects for Roscommon, Minister Humphreys said:
“I am delighted to announce funding for 66 local projects across County Roscommon today as part of my Department’s Community Enhancement Programme.”
“Through Our Rural Future, I want to support locally led, ground-up projects in local communities across the country. While these grants are small in nature, they can make a big difference by allowing local community organisations to carry out much needed works in their area.”
“I want to thank the Local Community Development Committee, and the Local Authority in Roscommon who administer the Community Enhancement Programme on behalf of my Department.”
