Welcome for approval of €196,314 for Copswood Pool and Sports Company

DAN NEVILLE WELCOMES THE APPROVAL OF €196,314 FOR THE REFURBISHMENT OF COPSEWOOD POOL AND SPORTS COMPANY

I was very pleased to hear from Phil Hogan, T.D., Minister for Environment, Community and Local Government today that he has given sanction to West Limerick Resources Limited, to approve funding of €196,314 to Copsewood Pool and Sports Company in Pallaskenry, under the Business Creation and Development Measure of the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013 subject to the necessary requirements being adhered to.

“The mission of this community group is to provide a top-class water safety training pool in the community. This will ensure that water safety training is available to all, in a venue that is fit for purpose.”

“The LEADER elements of the Programme offer many challenges and opportunities in terms of addressing the needs of improving the quality of life in rural areas and providing greater opportunities for farm diversification. It is focused on the development of micro-enterprises, rural services, rural recreation and rural tourism. It is hoped that, by focusing on these services, the Programme will lead to sustainable development, which in turn will ensure prosperity for the rural areas.”

“The project will now go back to the Board of West Limerick Resources Ltd. for consideration under the Business Creation and Development measure of the Rural Development Programme. This is in line with the EU’s “bottom-up” approach to rural development”.
