Slieverue Parish and Community Hall, Kilkenny
Slieverue Community Volunteers took part in the Dulux Let’s Colour Project 2012 and were dead set on bringing life and fun to the hall which they felt was missing from their community. Martin Hourigan from Slieverue parish says “All we ever hear now is negative news like people losing their jobs and money worries so we decided to start projects that would be fun and lift community spirits. Some of our projects are community craft fair, fun cycle, where people dress up in costume and cycle around our parish, community picnic where we all meet and everyone brings food and drinks to share. Our project we wish to paint is our new parish/community hall which was funded by community donations and completed in Feb 201 but badly needs painting.”
The project was a great success and the team used warm colours to make the large hall feel cosy and inviting, setting the mood for their activities and lifting the communities’ spirits.
