This has been a long time in the making. In 2019 we launched our Community Futures Action Plan and one of the priorities in the plan from the community consultation day was for the provision of a new community facility.

From early 2020 to 2022 a small subgroup of his the Community Council has actively worked on this and have been successful in talking to landowners, involving the local clubs and groups in Islandeady to find out what are their needs for today and into the future and this has been married into the designs and drawings we have today.

The Community Council would like to thank everyone who has provided us with their thoughts, ideas, vision, support, encouragement and advice as we now bring this project to the next phase and apply for planning permission with Mayo County Council.

This is the first of many steps in our ongoing plan to develop Islandeady for the people of today and for the benefit of our future generations to come.

Here is a video clip of the proposed new Community Centre and Sports Hall which has been designed by local Architect Micheal Horan from AXO Architects.
