LEADER Support for Ballon Community Centre

Ballon Community Centre is a thriving hub of activities most days of the week. It boasts a spacious, modern hall complete with attractive wooden floor, which at 500 square meters, is licensed for occupancy by up to 500 people. Sports activities that are held there include athletics, badminton, basketball, bowls, fitness classes, GAA, martial arts and soccer.
The venue is perfect also for parties, dances, fairs, shows, concerts, public entertainment, conferences and much much more. Full use of the main hall, viewing area, kitchen, tables, chairs, multi media facilities and hi-tech sound system is available. .

The Centre was originally built in 1976 thanks to the voluntary work and the fundraising efforts undertaken by members of the community at that time. Since then the Centre has been a focal point of community activity and has been host to an endless number of social, family and sporting gatherings.   A complete redevelopment of the Centre was undertaken in 2013 resulting in the superb facility that exists today. The redevelopment project was made possible again thanks to years of planning, fundraising and voluntary work undertaken by members of the community. Carlow County Development Partnership is always delighted to support the energy within communities and individuals to bring about positive change in their areas and provided mentoring to the group to submit an application for funding to the LEADER Programme which resulted in substantial financial support being received under the Rural Development Programme.

 

Padraig Lalor acknowledged the support of the LEADER Programme:

"At Ballon Community Centre we are indebted to LEADER for the valuable advice and support which they provided towards the redevelopment of our Centre. Apart from offering generous financial assistance, we benefited from LEADER’s encouragement and experience as they helped us with our early plans and guided us through all stages to completion of the project. As a result, we are very fortunate to have a state of the art Community & Sports Centre which is widely used by all age groups and has had an enormously positive impact on our community.”
