PROJECT SUMMARY

Purchase of equipment to further enhance service provision of Cromore Castles.

BACKGROUND

Ronan Mullan established a farm diversification business, called Cromore Castles, which specialises in the hire of inflatable play areas for childrens’ birthday parties.  The business developed to the stage where the applicant needed to add a greater range of play equipment to target new markets which have arisen.  Ronan could previously provide a range of suitable play equipment for young children up to teenagers and for twenty-first birthdays, but had identified demand from community fun days, large shows, and entertainment for nightclubs.

ACTIVITIES

In order for Ronan to be able to target a greater range of customers including community groups and school fun days, private hire for agricultural shows, festivals, nightclubs, weddings and school formals he applied to Axis 3, through North East Region for grant assistance with the purchase of new play areas, bouncy castles, slides, assault courses and generators (to power the air compressors).  These new purchases allow Ronan to have multiple play areas hired out at any one time.
