  • Title: About | Villierstown Education and Culture Project
    Descriptive info: The Origins of the VECP.. The VECP has its origins in a local success story: the Villierstown Montessori School.. In 2008 the Government began offering funding to childcare centres so they could offer free childcare to the communities they served.. To qualify for the funding, however, the centres had to be an Incorporated Limited Company.. The Montessori School was thriving at the time, but it was unable to access this funding because of its organisational and legal structure.. The school promptly gathered a group of community enthusiasts to discuss ways in which the Montessori’s restructuring could be tackled.. The group soon realised that their passion for Villierstown’s welfare extended beyond the Montessori School.. What evolved, quite quickly, were the foundations for an organisation that would work to protect Villierstown’s traditions and safeguard its future.. The VECP was born.. Our strength is our structure.. We have been awarded Charitable Status by the Revenue Commissioners which we’re really delighted with.. By incorporating the Montessori School into the VECP, we’ve enabled the school to offer the  ...   education, arts and culture in Villierstown, in a way that reflects who we are as a village.. We also want to help grow and sustain employment levels and become an example to communities across Ireland of what can be achieved when a rural community takes ownership of.. its future.. So what’s our purpose?.. Our mission statement will give you a pretty good idea of our intentions:.. “To preserve our local traditions, promote education and enhance community spirit.. ”.. It’s all about building an even better village for future generations and working to make sure Villierstown remains the kind of positive, forward looking community that many of us love.. To do that we need to harness the power and ideas of our residents.. And that means you!.. So if you would like to get involved in any of the projects that are currently underway, or if you have an idea that you think will help enhance our village – then we’d love to hear from you.. Drop us an email or give us a call..

  • Title: Fundraising | Villierstown Education and Culture Project
    Descriptive info: Fundraising is the lifeblood of any community organization.. It brings peoples ideas to enhance their community to life.. But in post Celtic Tiger Ireland it is increasingly difficult for organizations to raise the much needed funds to get these projects off the ground.. The VECP was awarded Charitable Status by the Revenue Commisioners in 2010.. This means that we can apply to State and Semi-state bodies to fund all manner of projects for our community.. However, no project will be funded 100%.. There  ...   commitment to deliver our ideas, while making sure we select the correct projects to run with.. After our successful open evening in October 2010, we matched the many ideas to enhance our village, to possible funding sources.. Once these have been prioritized we will start the process of formally applying for funding for these projects.. We will publish that list on this website and at that stage we’ll be looking for your support – emotionally and financially – for some ground breaking projects..

  • Title: History of Villerstown | Villierstown Education and Culture Project
    Descriptive info: About Villierstown Church.. The History of Dromana.. Dromana Gate Lodge.. During the famine (1845-49) the linen industry in Villierstown died out.. Some local people turned to fishing on the Blackwater as a source of employment.. The majority of villagers were given work by the Villiers-Stuarts on the estate at Dromana which itself encompassed Villierstown and beyond.. The Villiers-Stuart family were known to be one of the most civically minded estate holders in Ireland, earlier Lord Stuart de Decies, himself a Protestant, spent much of his political life furthering the cause of Catholic Emancipation.. During the 1820s the Dromana estate was in ownership of 40,000 acres (160 km.. 2.. ).. Part of this land today makes up Dromana Wood which is currently being managed by Coillte on a long term lease.. In 1965 much of Dromana House was demolished thus signaling the end of an era, with  ...   the well known Hindu Gothic styled gate lodge over the River Finisk is under the responsibility of the local County Council.. All that remains today of the house is the smaller 17th century wing, but not without its historical significance.. The family had to sell Dromana House in the 1960 s but they were able to buy it back in the early 1990 s.. The Villiers-Stuarts still reside in Dromana House today.. In August 2004 James Villiers-Stuart died and was buried at Villierstown Church.. Today Villierstown (Irish:.. An Baile Nua.. , meaning the new town ) remains the same picturesque village that it has ever been.. Villierstown has a growing population..
