A childs painting of a purple dress, done ni the ballymore community hallBallymore Community Hall is a former national school building that was leased to the Ballymore Community Association Ltd by the Diocese of Cloyne in 2002. Since that time, the management committee have undertaken expenditure of over €300,000 upgrading the building in order to allow it be used as a vibrant community centre. As well as being used by many local community groups for meetings, etc it also hosts a pre-school group. Ballymore Community Association Ltd also maintains an old graveyard nearby the school as part of their ongoing community enhancement work.

The group has been allocated two RDP grants by SECAD since 2010, the first of these (€4128) provided improved hall facilities for the community and generally enhance the basic community infrastructure of the area to ensure practical usage of the hall and thus it’s long term sustainability.

The second project (€17,515) provided an access ramp, replaced windows and guttering, improved hall facilities and generally contributed to the improved safety and appearance of the forecourt of the community centre.
