Visitors to the Community Centre and passers-by will have spotted the scaffolding going up around the building.
We’re putting external insulation onto the building to reduce heat loss and to keep the building warmer over the winter – and we’ll save money on our heating bills too! We were able to part fund this work through grants from the Municipal Fund and the SEAI.
We’ll also be renovating the kitchen next to the Main Hall, again part funded with a grant from the Municipal Fund so that, by autumn we will have a warm, draught-free, building with a beautiful, EHO-approved kitchen.
What about tea and coffee after the Cemetery Mass?
We will be using the New Hall to serve tea and coffee (and cake and biscuits) after the Cemetery Mass.
Is the insulation safe?
The insulation and its installation is certified by NSAI and complies with the requirements of the Building Regulations 1997 to 2011. We have a full copy of the compliance document available in the Resources Office or on line at NSAI if you would like to read it.
If you are visiting the centre, please watch your footing, stay behind any safety tape, follow instructions from centre staff about access, and make sure children are accompanied at all times.
We’ve asked Matt Care to take photos of the work as it progresses and we’ll post the photos up here so you can see how we’re getting on.
