The official launch of a ‘fundometer’ at the proposed new Clonakilty Community Youth Centre, next to Deasy’s carpark, took place on September 7. Passersby on the bypass road will have noticed the large sign, which was recently installed on the gable of the council-owned building. The fundometer will show how a fundraising campaign for the youth centre is progressing.

At a recent meeting of the West Cork Municipal District, there was unanimous support from the elected representatives present for a request to arrange a lease, for a nominal annual fee, between Cork County Council and the Clonakilty Community Youth Centre Committee. An extension and some internal works will need to be done to this building, costing approximately €50,000.

A dedicated committee of adults and young people have plotted-out a calendar of fundraising events for the next few months, including a concert by Tommy Fleming at Clonakilty Church on October 20, but would still welcome other initiatives or sponsorship from the public. Please contact Chairman Anthony McDermott on 087 6205146 or PRO Paul Hayes on 086 8589019.
