Youghal Active Retirement Association take home award for South Cork in Mayor’s Community Awards.
Our voluntary group set up in 2019, with approximately 550 members and affiliated with Ireland’s Active Retirement Association, this group were active during the pandemic in helping people who were cocooning and isolating.
The association hosts coffee mornings and trips away, as well as encouraging those living alone to meet for a walk and to keep active. They provide information on dementia and other ailments to the elderly members of the community as well as working with other voluntary groups in the area to best serve those in need.
We are delighted to be recognised with this award.
