Monasterevin Youth Club

A committee of 16 dedicated and committed people are in the process of setting up a youth club in Monasterevin. It is 19 years since this type of facility has been available to the youth of Monasterevin and now is the time to give something back to the youth. One big problem that the committee have is the lack of premises; they appeal to the public for help in sourcing suitable premises in Monasterevin.
All ideas welcome. Please contact Camella at 087 6739737.
