Pride of Place Award - Community Tourism Initiative
Moneygall Development Association was honoured to receive a Pride of Place Award for our Community Tourism Initiative which highlights the work we are doing to make Moneygall an attractive place to visit. This work commenced in 2011 and continues but our work as a development association is also complimented by the many other organisations and groups who work to enhance our community. Our presentation in July 2018 to the Judges was supported greatly by Dunkerrin Reaching Out and Cloncannon Bio Farm, these two organisations definitely enhanced our appeal to the judges along with the development of recreational facilities in the community for all to enjoy.
Moneygall Development want to thank the Judges for recognising our efforts but we also must thank Offaly Co Co and the support staff who assisted and believed in us as they put us forward to represent the county. We also couldn't have been considered for this award if it wasn’t for the continued support of Offaly Local Development Company who have worked with us since our inception in 2011. The community of Moneygall and the volunteers who give tirelessly to organisations make our community what it is, and the displays put on by everyone in the Church of Ireland Hall in July just shows you that we all certainly have Pride of Place. Working together we can do great things and we can’t wait to see what 2019 brings.
