WEST LIMERICK RESOURCES: is an independent not-for-profit company, operating in West Limerick for over 20 years. The organisation is run by a voluntary board comprising of a collective of representatives of community groups, interest groups, agencies & elected representatives who seek to work together for the betterment of the entire West Limerick area. Under the recently published government document ‘Putting the People First’ the future of West Limerick Resources is now under threat. If the proposals in the document are implemented, the organization may not be in a position to apply for funding from the EU Leader Programme or the Local & Community Development Programme. In order to fully inform you of the possible impact of these changes and to provide a forum for discussion, West Limerick Resources has organised public information meetings in Rathkeale Community Centre 7.30pm on Monday February 11th and in Desmond Complex, Newcastle West 8pm on Wednesday February 13th.
