The West Cavan West Fermanagh Regeneration Project worked on the ground to deliver cross border, cross community initiatives in these areas since 2009.
The project targeted the private, community/voluntary and business sectors. Itís aim to regenerate the area, through the delivery of a number of initiatives such as training; cross border networking, seminars, best practice trips and mentoring support.
The project worked with 15 active cross border cross community groups and 18 communities within the West Cavan/Fermanagh area. Over 1500 participants on the project had the common aim of wanting to come together to promote positive community relations through cultural understanding and raising awareness of cultural diversity.
The project also had a role in tourism development in the area by encouraging and supporting local communities to develop rural tourism businesses given the potential of the Geopark.
The IFI funded programme of activity ceased on 31st December 2013, however a group of individuals from these communities continue to network and meet on a regular basis in order to maintain the important relationships founded and as a means to join up development for the region. You can contact this group on their facebook page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>
