10. Kinawley Community Centre - Development and Draw update After a slow start we are expecting to complete the current development works in the hall by late summer, we are happy to say that this has all been fully funded through a combination of the “Raise The Roof” draw and other grants that the hall has been able to attract. Rather than continuously running fundraising events or increasing prices for the use of the hall, the feedback we have received is that there is an eagerness generally to continue a monthly draw in order to sustain ongoing running costs and support this worthy community resource. We plan to relaunch the format of this in the next few weeks for those that are interested. We would like to thank all the draw members for their ongoing support.
