Kilfian online has been developed
by Kilfian Community Development Association to promote
the interests of the Kilfian Community on the web.
Kilfian Community Development Association
was formed in July 1999.
Officers: Patron; Fr. Peter O'Brien
Chairperson; Patricia Walshe
Treasurer; Breege Ruddy
Members: Margaret Munnelly, Paddy
O'Boyle, Joseph Noone, Tom Hoban, Anthony McGreevy and Sean Gilvarry.
Previous to its inception, there
were four active voluntary groups in the parish: Parish
Pastoral Council, Community Care, Community Alert and the
G.A.A. The work done by each of those groups had a very
positive impact on the life of the parish. An area that
could not be served by any of the group was to source funding
from some state agencies and it was to fill this void, that
the Development Association was established.
Projects in which the association
has played a pivotal role, include: Village Enhancement,
McElroy-Fleming Monument, publishing the "Fleming" booklet,
upgrading the road to Kilfian cemetery, easing some dangerous
bends, signposting, Community Radio, Parish Telephone Directory,
and acquisition of computers, photocopier and furniture.
This work could not be done without
the support of: Mayo County Council, the local County Councillors
and Council Staff, Moy Valley Resources I.R.D., Clár and
the support of the local community.
