A Chairde,

Thank you for your continued support in our community Club 500 lottery. Your help over the last year has allowed Comharchumann Forbartha an Leith Triúigh Teo (CFLT) to support the following services for the community;

  • Tinteán Ceoil,
  • The upgrading of footbridge in Ballyguin,
  • Upgrading the CCTV at Halla Le Chéile,
  • Host the Hillwalking and Music Festival,
  • Provide the Afterschool Service to young families,
  • Host Féile Lughnasa and
  • Develop the Mount Brandon Base Camp Business Plan.

CFLT have been facing a number of challenges over the last few years; loss of key members of our staff, no new members available on work employment schemes, increased pressure on cash flow, people who have been recruited to cover the staffing shortages do not have access to employment schemes, decrease in local population, increased operational costs, loss of members of the Club 500, etc. These ongoing difficulties were addressed by our Accountant and the Board of Management at our AGM in April. It was advised due to these challenges, increasing financial pressures and in order to preserve the services CFLT offer, we regrettably have no choice but to cease the yearly €3,000 draw held each August. We will continue to operate the monthly draws of €500, €250, €150, €75 and €50.

Your continued support is fundamental to the successful operation of the services offered by CFLT. Your membership is now due for renewal.  Membership can be renewed for a period of one year for a cost of €150. A bank standing order of €12.50 a month is available please see the attached brochure for details.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us and we will gladly answer any queries you may have. Our offices are opened Monday to Friday 9-5.

Míle buíochas,

Comharchumann Forbartha an Leith Triúigh Teo.  Management Committee
