Monaghan Peace Campus Funding Application Successful
Monaghan County Council is delighted to announce that it has been successful in its application for Peace IV funding from the Special EU Programmes Body to deliver the ambitious Peace Campus project. This €14.3 million project will provide, under one roof, a youth facility delivering recreational, social support and training opportunities for young people, community space for services for the whole community, a cultural heritage centre promoting shared history, and a new town library providing space and opportunities for engagement, interaction and learning.
The 3 storey building comprising of 3355 sqm of indoor community facilities & 3235 sqm of external community space has been specifically designed to create social interaction, encourage cross community engagement & enable cross border activities, and will be located at the ‘Old Machinery Yard’ site on the Plantation Road.
This project has taken over 2 years to develop and is down to the great collaboration work of Monaghan County Council, the steering committee and stakeholders including local schools, and a range of cross community groups.
