    We are delighted to announce that following a recent application to Kilkenny County Council, Glenmore Community Centre have been awarded a grant of €3,000.00 under the Community Enhancement Programme for 2020. We applied for funding under the heading of Energy Efficient Projects. As a result of being awarded the funding we have been able to upgrade the lighting internally in the main hall and the external lighting also. We wish to thank Michael Fleming Electrical for his work on the project. Over all cost of the project was €3,700.00. We also most sincerely want to thank the Kilkenny County Council for awarding us funding under the Community Enhancement Programme 2020. Such funding allows us to continue to develop and enhance our community centre for us all to use and enjoy into the future.
