The The Duleek, Bellewstown and District Community Facility becoming ever closer to becoming a reality.
The Duleek, Bellewstown and District Community Facility Project is a perfect example of what can be achieved when people work together and this week it was announced that the renewable energy company Highfield Solar has come on board as a sponsor.
The Duleek, Bellewstown and District Community Facility started construction in early 2019 and phase one is due to be completed in 2020.
The project will deliver a much needed community facility for Duleek, Bellewstown and the surrounding areas, catering for a wide range of sports, community and voluntary groups and amenities.
Fundraising for the facility commenced last year and the latest “Buy a Block” campaign (https://www.facebook.com/duleekbellewstownfacility/) encourages the community to support the facility by purchasing a block, upon which their family name (or other chosen text) would be engraved. These blocks will be incorporated into the finished building and will be on display in the local council offices until the facility is constructed.

“We are delighted to support the community on this development and look forward to providing further support to other community projects in the locality in future” said Peter Kavanagh, Director of Highfield Solar Limited. “Duleek, Bellewstown and the surrounding areas will benefit for generations to come from a community facility of this kind”.
Highfield Solar is one of Irelands leading developers of renewable and clean-energy projects. They currently have over 500 MW of consented utility-scale ground mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) projects nationwide including Garballagh Lower Solar Farm, which is being developed within the townlands of Garballagh, Gillinstown and Thomastown (site is located west of the village of Duleek).
Oliver Cudden, the Chairman of the Duleek, Bellewstown and District Community Facility Project, said that the Facility development is reliant on financial support from local businesses and the community.
“We are very grateful for the support we have received from Highfield Solar Ltd” he said. “Every donation brings us closer to opening the doors of this new facility and sharing it with the community today and into the future” he added.
