The Knockmore Community Garden
In September 2020, approval was given by Mayo County Council to make way for a Community Garden in Knockmore. Funding has been secured for stage one of this project and work has already started in clearing the site and making way for the initial ground works. It is envisaged that this fantastic local amenity will be completed on a phased bases in 2021.
The Community Garden, once completed will be an excellent amenity for the local area giving both locals and visitors a serene place to visit, walk around and immerse yourself in the peaceful and beautiful surrounds of Knockmore. We are grateful to have had the specialist input from an architectural team who, following consultation with the Village Enhancement Group, have provide some suggested drawings for the project (see below).
This exciting project has been created by the community for the community, so if you have a little time to give and want to help create something beautiful for future generations to enjoy, put your name here and be part of something great. Over the coming months we will let you know exactly what help you can give and how much time it will involve.
Among the skills needed to create this fantastic amenity for the community: general laborer’s, engineers, architects and much more – Join up today and leave your legacy on the future of Knockmore.
The Romantic Conn Cullin Recreational Trail
A study has been carried out to investigate the feasibility of creating a walking trail from Knockmore village to Healy’s Hotel in Pontoon.
The Minister for Rural and Community Development, Mr. Michael Ring TD will officially launch the feasibility study on
Friday 29th November at 7:30pm in the Knockmore-Rathduff Resource Centre
All members of the community are warmly invited to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
If you love the Pontoon / Knockmore area and long to see it vibrant again, come along and show your support for this fantastic initiative.
The potential for this project is huge in terms of regenerating the Pontoon and Knockmore area. Not alone will it create a safe walkway or cycle way for you and your children but it will also attract tourists and visitors to our beautiful surrounds with the potential for job creation and more employment in the area. We’ve seen the positive impact the Greenway has had on the regeneration of the Newport, Mulranny and Achill – remote areas of Mayo – let’s bring that positivity to our area. Together, this is our opportunity, as members of the community to be part of a bright, proactive and healthy future for Knockmore and Pontoon.
