Loughmacory up for “Community Benefit” Grand Final Award at the RICS Awards on Friday

Enjoying opening day at the launch of the Loughmacrory Community Project in June 2014

Loughmacrory Community seen massive development planning in 2014 with the launch of the now much vaunted £1.1m project launch by the lough.

The impact of the new development project in Loughmacrory was further recognised in Belfast then back in May 2015 when the project won the award for “Community Benefit” at the RICS Awards 2015 ceremony at the Culloden Estate & Spa, Belfast. That award category also saw a Highly Commended for Tyrone as Tyrone GAA’s Centre of Education and Training in Garvaghey collected that accolade.

Chairman of the LCDA, Declan McAleer, is naturally delighted with this continued recognition of the impressive community project.

“RICS is the world’s leading professional body for qualifications and standards in land, property and construction and we are absolutely delighted that Loughmacrory has achieved this success in recognition of the benefits of this project to the community.

“Since the outdoor activity centre was officially opened last June, it has been a hive of activity for water sports, handball, football, walking, triathletes, angling and the gym has a wide range of programmes tailored to meet the needs of all people in the community.

“All of the events and facilities are run by volunteers and are accessible for everyone.  We are tremendously proud of how the project has developed and are delighted to be competing in the ‘Grand final’ this week.

The Chairman of the NI Judging panel will represent Loughmacrory’s Project at the Awards.
