Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, paid a recent visit to the Midlands recently during which she opened the newly refurbished Mount Temple community hall.

The newly refurbished hall which hosts numerous community events will also allow organisations and groups within the locality such as social services, active retirement groups, cultural and sporting organisations and many more to develop and prosper.

The project, which received over €217,000 in funding through the LEADER programme, will be used by all local organisations, and bring people together for numerous activities and for celebrating special events.

“This facility will make such a huge difference to the lives of the people in Mount Temple and its surrounding area and will be a focal point for the people of Mount Temple to meet and carry out many community activities that before the refurbishment were not possible.

“I am pleased too that the hall will lend itself to carrying out a wide variety of activities which will engage the whole community. This really is a project that will make such a difference to the people of Mount Temple and surrounding areas for generations to come.

“It is great to see facilities such as this one being delivered which help to rejuvenate rural areas and enhance the quality of life within these areas.

“I want to pay tribute to all the Mount Temple community hall committee members and their supporters for successfully delivering this magnificent facility and I’m delighted my Department was able to support them with an investment of over €217,000 under LEADER," Minister Humpreys enthused.
