Pride of Place Winners!

02 December, 2019

Congratulations to all involved as the Courtmacsherry and the Seven Heads Peninsula was declared the overall winners of the Islands and Coastal Communities award at the IPB Pride of Place Awards at the Lyrath Estate on Saturday night last.

Extract from the event programme:

Courtmacsherry and the Seven Heads Peninsula is a small rural community located on the south coast. The development committee in an attempt to maintain the population and remaining business in the village has organised a large number of local festivals. The committee works in the community to generate activities to bring people into the village. The community was not included in the initial Wild Atlantic Way but has campaigned tirelessly to have the area included either in the official route or in the loop off the route. When the last shop in the village closed the local community set up a co-op shop to serve the needs of the community. The shop has been operating for a number of years now and is a unique development in the county.
