Roadstone is set to support a new initiative to open up facilities in the Fettercairn Youth Horse Project to the wider Tallaght community.

Roadstone Ltd, based on the Cookstown Road, will make a donation to the Horse Project in support of its new voucher system that will enable young people in the community to be provided with free introductory lessons.

Chair of the Fettercairn Youth Horse Project, Sheilann Monaghan said: “We are delighted with the donation and the support we have received from Roadstone over the years.

“The donation will go towards vouchers for taster sessions for the local community to come down and avail of our great facilities.

“Roadstone has been a steadfast supporter of our work for many years and this has helped us to grow and develop our Project. We hope that support will continue for many years to come.”

Located on a four-acre site beside the Fettercairn Community Centre and Westside Markets, the Fettercairn Youth Horse Project provides equine-based recreational, educational and development opportunities.

Jim Rea, HR manager at Roadstone said: “The Fettercairn Youth Horse Project is a shining light in the local community and Roadstone is proud to support the excellent work being done by the staff here.

“As a neighbour in the Tallaght region, we recognise the value of having a positive community initiative like the Fettercairn Youth Horse Project for young people in this area which provides them not just with lessons and accredited training but with a full understanding and appreciation of all aspects of equine care.”
