Granard Motte Community Enterprise Limited (GMCE) has been established to develop and manage a new social enterprise for the benefit of the community of Granard, Co. Longford. GMCE has been formed as a community-owned company, limited by guarantee, and has obtained charitable status.

Since its establishment GMCE Ltd has worked tirelessly to achieve the following –
– €10,000 was raised by way of interest free loans from members of the community and local business. This was used to pay a refundable booking deposit on the purchase.
– A 500 Community Members Draw was launched and sold out. This is now in its 3 year and, thanks to the wonderful support of the local community, which includes Granard and the surrounding parishes, this draw realises a profit of approx. €35,000 each year. This has enabled the committee to obtain Bank Funding
– A comprehensive feasibility study was carried out by Exodea Consultants Ltd. This was completed in June 2013.
– GMCE Ltd. met with prospective stakeholders such as the local County Manager, local councillors, Longford Tourism, Failte Ireland, local schools, tour operators, Longford Community
