Community loan for Charleville Community Sports Complex

Charleville Community Sports Complex Limited was formed in 2012 with the aim of providing sports and community facilities to the people of Charleville. Their first project a full sized all weather pitch and a smaller all-weather play area with floodlighting was completed in October 2015. 

The main funding for the project was under the Rural Development Programme from Ballyhoura Development Limited and a grant from Cork County Council.  Clann Credo provided the necessary finance to cash flow the work and provided a term loan as part of the matching finance required for the project

This new all-weather facility is a sport and community facility to be enjoyed by all of the Charleville community, as well as the surrounding area. The income from the rental of the pitch provides the funds to repay the Clann Credo term loan facility.

A key challenge for many committees or organisations with plans to develop or expand their facilities is the availability of finance.  So, with the support of the community and Clann Credo, there was nothing stopping them.
