St. Mogue's Rural Community Centre's history starts in the 1950s when a local community hall was built by a voluntary committee.
The committee incorporated as a limited company in December 2003, becoming St. Mogue's Rural Community Centre (CLG).
Childcare at St. Mogue's started in 2002 and was originally delivered in the community hall. But the centre received a capital grant from the government that allowed the construction of the current childcare building. This was opened in 2007 and allows for the care of up to 56 children at once.

The Inch Multimedia Centre was built from a shipping container. It contains two offices equipped with donated computers. The Multimedia centre at its height had three dedicated trainers. Currently the multimedia centre has two part time, accredited community employment tutors.
