Joanne McCarthy of North Tipperary Leader Partnership said: “NTLP’s Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme aims to support local communities in coming together to promote wellbeing and participate in social and cultural activities together. We are happy to be involved in supporting this fun and inclusive Easter activity for families in the Tyone area and beyond”
Events included the An Taisce National Spring Clean in conjunction with Tidy Towns, flower box planting, Easter Egg Hunt at the Tyone Community Centre and the ‘Farmyard in the Schoolyard’ mobile pet farm which helps educate young people.
Housing Officer with Clúid Housing, Sue Rowley commented: “Events like these really do help to build a strong community. It really is wonderful to see people coming together, enjoying themselves and taking care of their community. We couldn’t do any of this without the friends and neighbours who so willingly give their time so we have to say a big thank you to all those who help make these events possible.”
