Over the past two years, 41 community centres in Offaly were audited for energy-efficiency and a half- dozen of them have upgraded their centres through funding from the Rural Development Programme.
Walls were dry-lined and insulated, windows replaced, better boilers installed and lighting changed. Among the areas with warmer more user-friendly community facilities now are St. Kilcormac, Coolderry, Ballykilmurray, Clonbullogue and Lusmagh.
The Energy Audit Initiative is now closed. However, for anyone with queries about how Offaly Local Development Company conducted the audit and the repair/refurbishment scheme, contact Pauline Hoctor, OLDC, Millennium House, Main St, Tullamore, Co. Offaly.
