Future uses of the former school building of Querrin NS will be debated at a facilitated workshop next week.

Querrin Community Development Group (QCDG), in association with O’Curry’s GAA club, West Clare Gaels ladies football club, the local IFA, and the Doonaha Community Development Group have organised an externally facilitated workshop to help guide the next steps for the Querrin school building, as it moves towards being a new community space.

At the workshop, attendees will be split into groups and invited to express ideas for the facility, with the output being a list of feasible options that could then be reviewed, circulated and prioritised for action.

Ideas already mooted for the building include its use as a business hub or small enterprise centre, a seasonal café, a community meeting place, a commercial kitchen facility, an education centre, a men’s shed, an exhibition space or theatre.

John Aston of AstonECO Management will facilitate the workshop which starts at 2pm on Saturday (October 23rd), he has helped to form the Loop Head Together network during the pandemic and has over fifteen years of local development and project design facilitation experience in over 10 countries throughout Europe.

An interest in Querrin and its potential is the only requirement for persons interested in attending, Chairperson of QCDC, Kevin Heapes explained. “This is a great opportunity for the area where we could develop a multi-purpose community asset with its direction set by a wide cross-section of those vested in making the future of Querrin N.S. a success”.
