Clashmore and Kinsalebeg Community Council

Welcome to 2016       

A lot of people worked hard to get the Community Council up and running last year and we are working hard again this year to plan events and activities which will meet some of the needs identified in the research we did last year.
The main objectives of the Council:
1. The Council will try and improve the area we live in;
2. Provide a place where existing organisations can share ideas;
3. Be a contact with outside bodies

Coming Up Soon
Are you worried about somebody?
In 2015 the Community Council carried out a survey that showed that there was a need for the Community to address mental health issues, isolation and depression.
We have therefore arranged for Michael O'Brien, a trained counsellor to give a talk on Wednesday 3rd February at 8 pm in the Community Hall, Clos Naomh Mochua, Clashmore.
Michael will talk about
  • the effects of suicide and self-harm in Irish communities.
  • what help there is for individuals who are recognised by friends and relatives as being at risk.
  • An understanding of the services provided by Pieta House.
At the end of the evening people will be empowered to know what they can do and what help there is available. The meeting is open to anybody.
