Cen­tre’s of­fi­cial open­ing

The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

ON Tues­day Mitchel­stown En­ter­prise Cen­tre on the Dublin Road was of­fi­cially opened and blessed. Canon Michael Fitzger­ald and Canon Tom Sher­lock led the prayers of bless­ing. The of­fi­cial open­ing was per­formed by Min­is­ter of State David Staunton.

Liam O’Do­herty on be­half of Mitchel­stown Fo­rum out­lined all the hard work of the com­mit­tee and the lo­cal sup­port given to make the mag­ni­fi­cient cen­tre pos­si­ble. At present 28 peo­ple are work­ing from the cen­tre and there are 10 dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies.

A spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion of ap­pre­ci­a­tion was made to Carmel Fox (Bal­ly­houra) and to Tom Whel­ton for their won­der­ful work in driv­ing the de­vel­op­ment. It must be ac­knowl­edged that the enor­mous amount of vol­un­tary time and work is be­ing given to de­velop the com­mu­nity of Mitchel­stown and to ac­quire the ser­vices avail­able.

State and Coun­cil bod­ies re­spond pos­i­tively to lo­cal vol­un­tary ini­tia­tives but with­out it a com­mu­nity is lost.

A big ‘ thank you’ to all in­volved and a big ‘ thank you’ to the Lord for all the bless­ings in the com­mu­nity.

A lit­tle con­tri­bu­tion from ev­ery­one is help­ing Mitchel­stown to re­dis­cover her great­ness and that she is cen­tral in the heart of Munster.
