Community Fundraising Support Campaign
Due to Covid-19, many fundraising events that our members groups would have been organising have sadly been cancelled. As a lot of our member groups rely heavily on their fundraising events to help support their services/activities. sadly due to Covid-19 this has resulted in a loss of income for these community groups/charities.
Below we have featured member groups who require donations from the public and details on how you can donate.

Umeras Peatlands Park
We are not-for-profit community group seeking to support Bord na Móna to transform the cut-away bog into unique nature areas while preserving the small area of community turf cutting so tourists can experience our peatland heritage.
Our funding proposal includes money to improve the bog road from Umeras Bridge as a cycle and walking track, and to widen and improve the Quinnsboro road from Ballykelly Locks.
We believe that a Peatlands Park will bring tourists to Monasterevin and Rathangan, which combined with the Blueway and Ballykelly Mills Distillery will rejuvenate the local economy. It will provide a great new amenity for our families to enjoy the rural tranquillity of the bogs and canal.
The Peatlands Park would create direct employment in building and managing the park, and also indirectly, by creating demand for cafés, shops, bike hire, accommodation, etc. in Monasterevin and Rathangan
If you would like to donate to support co-funding the design study, please click here.
