Blackrock Community Centre Refurb

The current Blackrock Community Centre was built over 30 years ago. Over the past five years we have secured grants, used centre profits, community fundraising, commercial sponsorship and donations to refurbish the interior of the centre. All the feedback confirms our voluntary efforts are worthwhile and we all agree that the centre looks fantastic. Thank you for all your support to make this happen.

As you can see already, we are NOW renovating the car park as a direct response to your requests and it's dangerous condition of late - especially when flooded. This project is long overdue. It is a very important parking facility and is used by so many members of our community for the Community Centre, Rock Celtic grounds, Blackrock Park and St. Oliver Plunkett's school every day.

We are finally able to tackle it with Council funding, our own funds, local businesses contributions and some voluntary efforts. However, it is very expensive project as we have to repair sewage pipes, install a new drainage system, carry out necessary ground works, level, tarmac and line the car park for it to be suitable for use. We also aim to repaint the exterior of the building and boundary wall, install bike racks and disability access. We are short €50,000 to finish the car park. We need your help. Please consider how important this parking amenity is to you, your access to the facilities it serves and your community. Think about how often you use and will continue to use this FREE parking facility and how important it is to make it a safe parking amenity - especially before the dark evenings come in again.

Please donate what you can now to help us finish it.

Thank you so much from all of us at Blackrock Community Centre.
