Clanmil Music in the Park

17 August 2018

Families living in the Dungannon area gathered at Dungannon Park on Friday 17th August for Clanmil Music in the Park. The event was organised by Clanmil Housing Association and supported by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) €1.1m Peace IV project.

Clanmil Music in the Park was an opportunity for residents in the area from different neighbourhoods and backgrounds to come together and  take part in a day full of fun, games and exercise.  Activities included face painting, crafts, live music, a BBQ, fun run and karaoke competitions.



The event was part of the Housing Associations Integration Project (HAIP) which is funded by the EU’s PEACE IV programme and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). The aim of the project is to bring together tenants from a range of religious and cultural backgrounds to share experiences, learn about differences and embrace diversity in the communities in which they live.

Charlene McGrath, a resident of Millview Manor in Dungannon said, “The cross community fun day at Dungannon Park was brilliant. I came down with my family and there was so much to do. It was great to get talking to people from different backgrounds who live nearby.”

Tim O’Malley, Community Development Manager at Clanmil Housing Association, said the event was a great opportunity for residents to get to know their neighbours, “We held the event hoping that people would come together and get to know each other in a fun and positive environment and it was a great success. Community building is important, and we’re delighted that some of those who came along to the event have signed up to be community champions of the PEACE IV project.”

The Housing Associations will deliver the project across 40 neighbourhoods in Northern Ireland, (10 in Clanmil) to create community capacity building through learning and development opportunities to support inclusion, participation and integration of our tenants.
