A New Steering Committee
Mulranny Community Futures
Following the completion of the second Five Year Community Futures Plan for Mulranny, a new Steering Committee was established at a recent meeting. Representatives from all of the community groups were invited to attend this meeting and to become members of the new steering committee and new officers were elected.
The role of the new Committee will be to drive this new Action Plan for Mulranny by assisting and supporting all of the community groups. This plan is a result of an extensive community profile and engagement process which included a Youth and Business Survey. All information gathered was taken into account when setting out the new priorities for the Plan.
At the meeting outgoing chairman Michael Hughes outlined the many projects that came to fruition in the past 6 years and congratulated all of the community groups and the steering committee for their role in these achievements. He thanked Mayo County Council for the help and guidance they provided to produce the new Action Plan and he also thanked them, along with our TDs and local Councillors, for their great support over the past 6 years and for their continued commitment to Mulranny into the future. Stating that many of the priorities set out at the start of the Futures Process have been realised, he noted, that there were other priorities that proved more difficult to achieve, one example being a Community Playground. Mr. Hughes wished the new committee luck and handed the chair over to the newly elected Chairman Mr. Pat Moran.
Other committee officers were elected as follows:- Sean Carolan, Vice Chairman, Nuala Ginnelly, Secretary; Carol Loftus, Asst. Secretary; Thomas Hanley, PRO; Saskia Eland, Treasurer and Michael Hughes, Liaison Officer.
Pat Moran thanked Michael Hughes for his dedication and hard work over the last 6 years and acknowledged the great work all of the community groups carry out. He stated that the Steering Committee will work positively together to ensure that all Community Groups are fully supported and facilitated in their endeavours to carry out the Community Futures Action Plan and they will continue to be a communications and guiding group within the community.
