After a long search we were delighted in 2018 to secure purchase of a building at the edge of Kilkenny city centre.  The Community Centre will be required to meet latest building standards, which will include renovation to create a versatile, accessible, safe and comfortable building.  

Phase One:  60k (Completed)

  • Asbestos roof removed by specialists.

  • New slate roof & skylights.

  • Refurbishment and complete rewiring of upstairs offices to rent, including new toilet and tea station.

Phase Two:  65k (In Process)

  • Major building works needed to be undertaken to improve facilities, provide disability access, and meet modern building standards including fire safety.
