Clane Community Council is delighted to have received $2810 – over €2100 – from Intel Ireland this year as part of their Intel Involved community outreach programme.
Martine Grogan, Rita Mahon, Tony McEvoy and John Kennedy, all members of Clane Community Council, delighted to receive the donation from Intel
Intel distributes an amount based on the number of hours its employees volunteer with each approved charity. 2013 was a particularly busy year for the Community Council and with several Intel employees contributing substantial personal time the grant received reflected this.
John Kennedy, Chairman of Clane Community Council and himself an Intel employee, thanked Intel for their generous support of the Community Council. The money will be used to support the numerous initiatives it continues to run on behalf of the community including Clane Tidy Towns, Clane and Rathcoffey Community Games, Clane Frairy and Abbey Graveyard, and Lé Cheile.
If you or people you know happen to work in Intel – please get in touch if you’d like to find out more about the scheme.

Intel’s donation was based on the total amount of hours that Intel employees have volunteered towards Clane Community Council activities in 2011. John Kennedy, Chairman of Clane Community Council and himself an Intel employee was “doubly thrilled to see not only Intel employees donating their time to important community initiatives such as Community Games, Tidy Towns, and our heritage and environmental projects, but the Intel company itself reinforcing these employee efforts with valuable matching grants.”
A sincere thank you to Intel and Intel volunteers for their generous support.
