This Online Survey will be open until Sunday, October 31st, 2020

Lackagh Museum and Community Development Association in partnership with Turloughmore Community Council wish to develop an area-based community plan for the whole parish. In addition Lackagh Museum also aim to provide a blueprint for the sustainable redevelopment of their Heritage Centre. The Association has engaged expert consultants to assist in this process and create a plan for the future of the community. Your assistance is needed at this early stage to help us record the feedback of the local community and key partners. Please complete this 10 min survey, no names need to be provided. The information gathered will help establish a vision that will benefit all parishioners. It will find out what the community infrastructure deficits are in the parish while identifying which ones could potentially be incorporated into new developments at the museum. The results will be outlined to all towards the end of the three month process.

The study is being part funded through Galway Rural Development and the LEADER Programme.
