The allocation of funds has been welcomed by Fine Gael TD for Cork North West Michael Creed. “I’m delighted to hear that Millstreet Community Council has been allocated €117,000 under this year’s Town & Village Renewal Scheme. This money will enable the Community Council to refurbish an old cinema building at the west end of the town centre as the town’s new community gym,” he said.

Deputy Creed continued: “Great credit is due to Cork County Council for their foresight in purchasing this building, which also housed a furniture store at one point in its history. When the refurbishment work is complete, and the new gym is up and running, the space currently housing the community gym can be used to extend the community creche. This will meet an urgent need for more creche places in Millstreet.

“Minister for Rural and Community Development Heather Humphreys has announced a total of €20 million in funding under this year’s scheme, focusing on the revitalisation of rural town centres. It is great to see these policies delivering real change at local level and making a tangible difference to our rural towns and villages,” he added.
