Kilcock Celtic

Kilcock Celtic

A sports club whose membership is on the rise.

As a result of the substantial growth in population of North Kildare, Kilcock Celtic has seen a dramatic growth in membership and demand for facilities.

The club needed to develop additional playing and training facilities to be able to meet this increased demand.

We were proud to have been able to assist them in the completion of their new all-weather pitch in late 2020 despite the current social conditions.

“The positive support, advice and understanding we received from our Client Relationship Executive Barry and the whole team in Community Finance Ireland allowed the Club executive to deliver the project in a short timeframe.”

Providing 24 hour mountain rescue emergency services in the Wicklow Mountains since 1983.

In early 2020 the Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue team planned to develop their mountain rescue base in Laragh Co. Wicklow with grant aid from the County Wicklow Partnership.

When the project experienced difficulties in securing the necessary project bridging finance from their bank the team approached Community Finance Ireland and we were happy to oblige.

The project included the provision of additional car parking, and the development of equipment storage facilities and environmental systems.

“Community Finance Ireland were extremely helpful with project advice and very supportive of the mountain rescue base development project. They quickly came on board the project making over €100,000 in bridging finance available until arrival of the grant aid from the County Partnership fund. The development project was successfully completed in November 2020 despite the impact of the Covid 19 safety limitations.”
