Community loan for Camp Community Council Limited

Camp Community and Camp Community Council has worked tirelessly since 1983, developing facilities and services for the village. Since 1983 the community has benefited from a Community Hall, Playground, Childcare Centre, Community Sports Field and the old school is used to provide additional community facilities and services to the elderly.

In 2014, Camp Community Council developed an AstroTurf pitch available to all the community and the surrounding areas. The AstroTurf project was completed in two phases.

Grant funding was received from North and East Kerry Development and under the Sports Capital Programme for the different phases of the work. Clann Credo provided the necessary finance to cash flow the work and provided some term loan finance as part of the matching finance for the project.

Gene Finn, the chairman of Camp Community Council spoke about his process with Clann Credo and how we take on projects that banks would brush aside, "We found Clann Credo to be very professional and quick to respond to our queries. They understand the needs of Community Groups better than the mainstream banks and we could not have delivered our project without their support. We look forward to working with them in the future."
