Mayo county councillor Patsy O’Brien has warmly welcomed the sanctioning by South West Mayo Development Company (SWMDC ) for two major projects in Cong. SWMDC has given the green light to Cong Community Centre Limited for the construction of a community centre at Gortaroe and also to Cong Festival Committee Limited for the construction and installation of two bronze statues in Cong village.
Cllr O’Brien stated: “As a member of the board of LEADER, I am truly delighted that these two projects have been sanctioned by SWMDC. The new community centre will prove to be a very valuable piece of local infrastructure. I believe the installation of the bronze statues will have enormous tourism potential and will bring more visitors to the area.”
Cllr O’Brien acknowledged and complimented the work which Minister of State for Tourism and Sport Michael Ring carried out on this matter.
