Foroige – Cyril Reilly & Alan Judge – In Focus: Episode 193
This week we’re talking about some of the resources and facilities available for our counties young people through Foróige which runs a large number of youth clubs across the county.
Breifne is joined by Cyril Reilly and Alan Judge, two staff members of the Foróige Futures Project working closely with each of the community based projects with a new series of clubs emerging in recent months.
Alan explains exactly what type of activities take place on club nights and what kind of young people are engaged with the programmes. He outlines where there has been huge uptake in some new clubs in Leitrim Village and Carrigallen and a Macra Foroige special interest group.
Cyril explains how special interest groups can be formed with as few as four young people who share a specific interest such as a book club or another shared hobby even in small numbers.
