Inishturk Community Club CLG
Pride in our non-profit
The company was officially incorporated as a body in 1991, but a group of islanders had been working hard to plan, construct and operate a community centre on the island since the mid-1980s.
Thanks to the massive voluntary effort from locals, this dream was achieved and Inishturk Community Club was officially opened by Uachtarán na hÉireann Mary Robinson in 1993.
Again in 2013, more great effort led to the beautiful extension of the building to create the restaurant with "the best view in Ireland."
Since 1991, whilst the island population has slightly declined, it has been working tirelessly on development and the CLG was the perfect body to be the lynchpin of Community Development focusing on retaining and generating employment and services for the island.
We are extremely grateful to central & local government, funding bodies, philanthropy groups and private donations for their support of Inishturk Island.
