Ballyhoura Development: Since Cappamore Community aligned itself a number of years ago with Ballyhoura Development Ltd. there has been huge progress made in the social fabric of the area.Olivia O Brien is the co-ordinator for Cappamore and she works with the local community to identify its needs , helps to formulate a plan to address these needs, applies for Leader funding, puts the plan into action and supervises it to its conclusion. The Development Company took a vacant house in Mullally Lawn and have made it into a Community House which is hub for the surrounding estates. There the voluntary groups can meet regularly to discuss their projects for the year. Having been very successful in the National Pride of Place competition and Limerick in Bloom over the past two years these voluntary bodies have some very ambitious projects in the pipeline for the coming months. Cappamore has little bad press, due to the great pride which these groups take in their place.

In the Community House there are 2 people employed plus 2 in the Tús initiative and 1 Fás worker.. “Towards Occupation” group use it twice a week. Mondays and Wednesdays This helps people who have been longterm unemployed to make their way back into the workplace and it updates their various skills along with familiarising them with the use of computers..There is an after school Homework Club 4 days per week from 2.45p.m. to 5.00p.m. Every Friday night the Foróige Club is in session from 7.00p.m. to 9.00p.m. Starting shortly on Mondays will be the Knitting Classes and details can be had by contacting Margaret at the Community House..

Ballyhoura Ltd. is a highly efficient model of what rural Ireland needs to progress. We don’t want to lose this.
