Coolagown win Award for Creativity and Innovation at twelfth Annual Pride in Our Community Competition

Coolagown Development Group have won second place in the Innovation and Creativity Category at the 12th Annual Muintir na Tire Pride in our Community Awards held in Oriel House Ballincollig.
Their Rainwater Harvesting Project was praised by the judges.  Rainwater is pipped from the church roof into a seven-thousand-gallon tank, which is then pumped up and down the village through 3kms of pipes, with fifteen taps at various locations throughout the village for use by all householders.
County Cork Councillor Seamus McGrath congratulated them and said that it was great to see the effort being put in by them and other community groups in developing locally-based Amenity/ Projects which are of long-term benefit to their local community all over County Cork’

Mr Sean Holland Chairman of the organising committee was keen to point out that competition also seeks to make local people conscious of their local environment and promotes litter free communities. He said the competition is open to all voluntary groups in County Cork. Sean added that the organisers had simplified the competition after consulting with local groups. He urged any group that were planning a project or were maintaining an existing project to consider entering the competition
