Over €1 million allocated to make Dun Laoghaire energy efficient

Fine Gael TD for Dun Laoghaire, Mary Mitchell O’Connor has, today (Monday), welcomed the allocation of over €1 million from the Better Energy Communities Programme to improve Dun Laoghaire amenities.
“The Better Energy Communities Programme is funding awarded by Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland (SEAI) to retrofit Ireland’s building stock and facilities to high standards of energy efficiency, this reduces the use of fossil fuels, running costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
“In Dun Laoghaire, €1,294,400 has been awarded to a range of community projects. Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council partnered with Dun Laoghaire leisure services and Irish Water to carry out a wide range of energy efficiency upgrades on public lighting, public heritage buildings, on community centres, leisure centres, sheltered housing and water services.
“It is very important that we create a society based on sustainable energy structures and I am pleased that this money is being used to upgrade older buildings and systems; these are facilities used by all of the community on a daily basis.
“I am particularly happy to see that Ballybrack Community Rooms, Cois Carn Community Rooms, St Nathy’s House Community Rooms and Glencullen Community Hall benefit from this programme. These community halls are at the core of the community as they provide vital services to all.”
