A major drive for funds to improve the church, school and community car park deemed a “health hazard” is underway in the village of Kilnaboy.

Kilnaboy Community Development Association were recently awarded €23,000 by CLÁR towards the redevelopment of the community car park, an undertaking estimated to cost €35,000 in total.

The €12,000 deficit required for the car park will facilitate the upgrades to the surface, add new markings and additional lighting.

Sean Roche who is heavily involved in the local Youth Club stressed the difficulties and curtailments on traditional church gate collections during the pandemic and emphasised the health and safety benefit to the redevelopments which are due to take place in the month of July this summer.

“People need a safe and secure place to park. There are a lot of communions, confirmations, weddings and funerals that take place here. The car park has been used as a pitstop on several cycling tours of the Burren in recent years. The surface has been there since the early 2000s and its worn. On top of that there is a light pole that blocks four spaces which is due to be removed,” he told The Clare Echo.

Donations can be made via a Go Fund Me page or in person at four locations in Corofin: Centra and Daybreak on Main Street, Tom Hogan’s on Market Street as well as Lakefield Service Station on the Ennis Road. All locations are open seven days per week.
