Foilmore Community Centre Action Group CLG
Foilmore Community Centre Action Group CLG is made up of seven directors and a working committee, all strong community activists with significant experience in working on voluntary organisations and community development projects. The aim of the group is to: • Develop and operate a dedicated community centre for the community of the greater Foilmore area. • Through the proposed community centre, support the initiation of community programmes, the delivery of services and information and support those voluntary and community bodies that are targeting local issues, such as rural isolation and social integration. • Be responsive to local needs and support local initiatives. The Centre was built in 2011 and has become one of the busiest community centres in South Kerry over the past few years. A wide range of activities and events take place in the centre every year. These include; Indoor Soccer – both children and adults, Badminton, keep fit classes, birthday parties, dances, concerts, meetings, classes etc. Groups utilising the hall include; Womens Group, Foilmore Comhaltas, Foilmore GAA Club, Foilmore Drama Group, Foilmore Youth Club, Skellig Stars, Choir groups to name but a few.
