Buncrana Youth and Community Development Company
Buncrana Youth and Community Development Company (BYCD) was originally formed in 1969 as a boys club. More recently its mission has been to develop and maintain a sports and social centre that would facilitate social interaction, as well as the provision of childcare, education and training services for the community of Buncrana and the surrounding areas.
The company has recently completed phase one of the development of the Buncrana Youth Centre; a multi-purpose sports hall with playing fields, all-weather surfaces, meeting rooms, office space and classrooms. UCIT (Ireland), with assistance from the Social Finance Foundation, has approved a loan to cover the costs associated with phase two of this project, which will include new changing rooms, toilets, showers, six resource rooms, a new entrance and an upgrade to part of the existing building.
