Project Description

Community Employment

Connemara West Community Employment participants work in a number of very valuable projects in the community, from Connemara Community Radio, Tigh nOg Community Crèche to the Cluid Housing Office, Clifden.  They also work on village renewal projects in Tully, Tullycross and Letterfrack and carry out maintenance work on the community pitch in Letterfrack.  As well as regular maintenance work, the CE participants work on special projects that are of great importance to the local community, from assisting in the renovation and extension of a room of repose in Letterfrack Church, to the development of new amenities in the local villages.  The most recent collaboration with Letterfrack Tidy Towns is a new path linking Letterfrack to the sea.   The CE participants offer invaluable assistance to the Connemara Mussel Festival held each May in Tullycross, the Connemara Green Festival held in October in Letterfrack, and countless other community events during the year.
