30 + YEARS OF COMMITMENT TO PILTOWN

Supporting business and encouraging start-ups

To create, promote and develop a culture of enterprise in our community , by providing support, facilities, infrastructure and the environment to encourage business development and job creation in start-up and small businesses

It all began.....

With a derelict site in the center of Piltown village…..

And now…..

THE OLD CREAMERY ENTERPRISE CENTRE was completed at the end of February 2019.

This consists of a further 2,580 sq. ft for the creation of jobs in our locality.

This Phase of the project is now complete.

 We now have five units of various sizes which are designed to assist the development 

of business start-ups and employment growth in our area.

Facilitated Projects

 

Over the years we have facilitated other projects and worked with other organisations to the  benefit to the parish. 

We are currently working with these three projects

Pil River Park

PIL RIVER PARK

Background work for the development of Pil River Park has been progressing steadily during these difficult and unsettling times.

  • Tenders have been awarded for the Fencing, Sensory Garden and the Seating aspects of the project.
  • A grant of 75% towards the funding of these areas was received from Kilkenny LEADER Partnership.
  • Etenders have been sought for the playground equipment and all the necessary work involved with this is ongoing.

Community Support has been a major part of this project. Our big event ‘The OsKars’ is still very much in the pipeline and will go ahead as soon as it is safe for us all to come together.

Machinery will be seen on site shortly as work gets underway on cleaning the perimeter and the fencing begins.

A positive sign of our community moving forward again.
