ESB awards €7,000 to four Kerry community groups

ESB has awarded €7,000 to four community groups in Kerry as part of its Wind Farm Community Fund.

The money was given to organisations close to the Mount Eagle Wind Farm near Castleisland, as the ESB makes grants available to communities close to their wind facilities.

Knocknagoshel Over-55s Club got €2,000 towards the development of a recreational programme, €2,000 also went to Kilmurry National School for an outdoor learning environment, a garden-tunnel and raised planting beds.

Brosna GAA Club benefitted from €2,000 to improve their walking and running track, and €1,000 went to Cordal Community Resource Centre and Sports Hall for equipment.

Kerry Fianna Fáil TD John Brassil is welcoming the announcement.
