Christmas came early for Donegal Town on Monday morning last when the sod was turned on a new project close to the centre of the town.
From very humble beginnings in 1967 Donegal Town Credit Union has flourished with over 6,000 members on it’s books currently.
Manager of the Credit Union, Liam Kelly said: “This is indeed a very exciting day for everybody in the Union - the customers and the staff and it is great to see so many of the founding members here today.
“With the continuing growth in our business we simply needed more space and a town centre location was desirable. This site and design ticks all the boxes.”
Michael Kelly of Glebe Construction said, “This is a very welcome development which will sustain up on 15 jobs in primary employment with more secondary employment with providers and sub-contractors. We expect to complete the building in mid - August next year.”
Declan McCabe who designed the building said, “This is our second landmark building in the centre of the Town. We are thrilled with the reaction to the new Parish Centre and are confident that this will further enhance the streetscape of the town.”
