Ballinamore Area Community Council Ltd. (BACC) was formed in 1975. The  main aim is job creation and the creation of leisure facilities for those who live locally, making the area a better place to work, live and play in.  The Ballinamore Area Community Council is a community body representative of the catchment area of Aughawillan, Aughnasheelin, Ballinamore, Corraleehan, Drumreilly and Fenagh.  They continue to work in partnership with individuals and organisations enabling the whole locality to reach its full potential – culturally, economically, and socially.

 

There first venture was to purchase land around Poll an Easa Waterfall, and create an amenity area for locals and tourists alike.

 

 

 

Then building the Enterprise Units, which support existing enterprises and encourage new business start -ups by offering low rental in an accessible central location. Next was the building of the Sports Complex to provide indoor sporting facilities to ensure a healthier lifestyle for all ages.  A few years after the Community Den was built, where the 1st Leitrim Scouts are based and where the new Peace Impact Programme office is located.  The  facilities are for use by all members of the community regardless of culture, race, or religious background.

 

Recently the Ballinamore Area Community Council Ltd has grown its involvement economically and socially. Who have continued to evolve their interest and support the major regeneration of the St Felims project.

 

In 2017, after a community wide consultation, run by the Leitrim County Council, there was an agreed strategic plan published for the whole area. The Ballinamore Area Steering Group was established.

 

In 2018 The Better Together – Níos Fearr Le Chéile (PIP) was developed from an observed need to engage our community economically and socially in peace building activities. The aim to create opportunities and shared experiences by developing cross community and cross border relationships.
