Supporting our communities

We’re helping to improve quality of life for people across the country, through community funds, charitable contributions and local amenities.

Interwoven with the threads of Ireland’s social fabric

Since the foundation of the state, Bord na Móna has played a vital role in towns and villages across the country. We believe that we have a duty to do more than sustain livelihoods; we must also enrich the quality of life for the people who live and work around us.

Community funds for local causes

We believe local people know what their own area needs. That’s why our Community Gain Funds are tied to specific locations and are administered and awarded with active participation from the local community.
