The local community of Kiltyclogher is delighted with the transformation of the play area in the Fairgreen area of the local village.
The newly enhanced play area which was designed by local environmental regeneration charity Groundwork NI was officially opened at 1.00pm on Sunday 14th August 2011 by local renowned fiddle player Ben Lennon as part of the Michael Shanley Traditional Music weekend.
In keeping with the music theme guests who attended the official opening of the play area were treated to a traditional session of live music in Fairgreen which was performed by local musicians.
The transformation of the play area is part of the three year strategic programme Reconciling Communities Through Regeneration (RCTR) which is managed and delivered by Groundwork NI.
Representatives from Kiltyclogher Community Council who are participating on the RCTR programme were keen to develop this project and they secured £50,000 sterling via the Reconciling Communities Through Regeneration (RCTR) Programme.
Reconciling Communities Through Regeneration (RCTR) is a three year, £988,000 EU-funded regional programme, funded through the PEACE III Programme, Priority 1.1 Building Positive Relations at the Local Level, under the European Regional Development Fund.
