THE Lissadell Centre is to get a €30,000 revamp. The building is located next to Lissadell Church.

The PEACE III small grants funding will be used to upgrade windows and doors, bathrooms and install a new fire alarm system.

Safety, security and accessibility is also to be improved.

The North Sligo Parish is also involved in a cross-community peace building initiative.

This month, the group will join with representatives from Clogher, Tyrone, to attend Balmoral Show.

The Show takes place on the site of the former Maze Prison, near Lisburn.

Rector of Lissadell Archdeacon Ian Linton said: "We are so pleased to have the opportunity to enhance the life of the local community.

"We are doing this through improvements to the Lissadell Centre and by bringing people together to strengthen friendships.

"We are grateful to the Sligo Peace & Reconciliation Partnership Committee for giving us this opportunity."
