Additional funding will be sought in time for the development of new facilities in Elphin.
That's according to Councillor Valerie Byrne who was responding to concerns over plans for the former courthouse in the town.
In Autumn 2020, a local community group were succesful with a planning application for the development of a community hub at the courthouse
However, Councillor Bryne confirmed to Shannonside FM that a funding submission for this project was unsuccessful and the group must now try again at a different location.
Despite calls from some locals for new facilities at the site, the Elphin native believes the social homes will breathe life back into the town centre.
