Following An Bord Pleanála’s appproval for the above development, the elected committee, representative of every area of the parish, has met and recommended that fundraising for the project be immediately set in motion so that work can commence without further delay. The committee has recommended a minimum contribution of £10 per household per month, payable by special monthly envelope, or by Banker’s Standing Order, or by means of a bi-annual or annual lump-sum payment.
Special envelopes will be distributed by members of the committee to each house in the parish in the near future to enable those who might wish to contribute monthly to do so. A target of three years has been set in which to clear the cost of the project. The committee hopes that this badly-needed facility for the parish of Claregalway, which has been very warmly welcomed by
the overwhelming majority of the people of the parish, will receive the wholehearted support of parishioners. The committee would like to point out that there will not be any charge to parishioners for the use of the Mortuary Chapel or for the use of the Meeting Room.
Applications are being sought from registered building contractors for inclusion on a tender list for the construction of the above. Documentation can be inspected by prior agreement at the Parish Office. All applicants must be in a position to show evidence of previous work experience and all necessary contract insurances prior to being considered for appointment for this work and all applications should be forwarded to the Parish Office not later than Friday, September 22nd next.
It should be noted that the client will not be liable for any costs incurred in lodging this application nor be obliged of necessity to accept the lowest tender submitted.
