A Great Evening at the Pride of Place Party

 567b32fec8c7f

A large crowd gathered in Kilteevan Community Centre on Sunday 13th December to

enjoy a tea party celebration after all the activtiy in the community that ultimately led to

the village being awarded a runner up Prize in the “Pride of Place” national awards held

earlier this year.

At the celebration the new chair person, Michael Spellman made a speech thanking all

the people who had made the community a nation talking point. “It has been the

constant efforts of hundreds of people that have brought us to where we are today. 13

years ago we had a enthusiastic community however the community centre was in dire

need of restoration and the community needed to be brought together. With the

formation of the Kilteevan Community Development Group we are now the envy of

many community groups around the country”

Three of the original directors of the development group Eileen Fahey, Fiona Coen and

Hugh Brennan were honored at the event, “It is a testement to their hard work over the

last 13 years that we have such a wonderful space to hold this event in today. To the

people of Kilteevan when one mentions Eileen, Fiona or Hugh the words “Community

Spirit” is the first to mind.

Michael also mentioned the newly formed tidy towns group who have been busy litter

picking, flower planting and other activites to spruce up the crossroads village and

whose efforts were rewarded with a high first score in the competition.

To top off a great evening there was a very special visitor from the North Pole.
