Congratulations and Good Luck Paul

23 08 2012

Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has congratulated fellow Ballycastle man Paul Kerrigan who has successfully reeached the final of the Calor Ireland Community Champion.

Wishing him well, Councillor Cunningham  assured Paul that he is already a winnner and the Ballycastle community greatly appreciates his efforts.

Paul has worked very hard in setting up the Ballycastle Community Development Group (BCDG). A group was inspired by the facebook page “What I would like to see in Ballycastle”.
“In the short period of their existence the group under Paul’s  guidance have

  • initiated the Youthlinks regeneration fund (saving a local youth club from shutting down),
  • delivered the first community festival recently to the town in many years as part of the Olympic torch day on the 3rd of June.
  • organised a Community games weekend
  • are in the process of developing a community radio station for all in the community, but specifically involving youth who are on the fringes of crime and getting them involved to help change their lives for the better.
