Minister for the Environment Alan Kelly has announced the allocation of €50,000 towards the CCTV project at Dunmore. It is envisaged by the Minister that the scheme will be rolled out as a pilot for other rural areas of Ireland. We are deeply grateful to Minister Kelly and Senator John Whelan for their support of the scheme. The allocated funding together with funds already raised through the hard work of the community will go a long way to providing the best quality system available to ensure the format can be held up as a first-rate example for other groups wishing to add a CCTV structure to their Community Alert arrangement.

Barn Dance: A big thank you to Andy Phelan and family, Kyle for hosting the recent Barn Dance and all the volunteers who helped out. A very good night was had by all and the monies raised will go towards the CCTV scheme. The Halloween Fancy Dress Party will take place in Bob’s Bar on Friday 30th October 2015. Admission is €5 at the door with plenty of prizes to be won.
