Limerick Youth Service Would Like to Hear from You!

Limerick Youth Service has been encouraging young people to go beyond the limits for 40 years.

Limerick Youth Service would like to invite past and present volunteers, participants and staff to a Celebration Evening at the Strand Hotel, Ennis Rd, Limerick on Friday, September 26th at 7:30pm.

The evening, which will mark the formal end to the popular youth organisation’s 40th anniversary celebrations, is an opportunity for those who contributed to Limerick Youth Service to share their experiences and meet old friends.

‘Having supported Limerick’s youth for over 4 decades we are sure there are some out there with amazing stories that we would like to hear,’ said Catherine Kelly, CEO, Limerick Youth Service.

‘We would like to gather as much information as possible about people’s time with Limerick Youth Service and share it with the wider public,’ explained Ms. Kelly.

‘The evening is also our way of saying ‘thank you’ for the support Limerick Youth Service has and continues to receive from the people of Limerick and beyond,’ added Ms. Kelly.

The celebration evening will also feature the regional leg of Youth Work Ireland’s Volunteer Achievement Awards with local volunteers nominated in a number of categories.

‘The categories reflect the diversity of volunteering opportunities at Limerick Youth Service,’ said Dermot Troy, Limerick Youth Service.

‘From a Friday night youth club, to various committees or leading a band of merry men up Croagh Patrick, volunteers contribute their time and experience to our young people,’ added Mr. Troy.

Volunteers from this year’s local awards will be put forward for selection for Youth Work Ireland’s National Volunteer Achievement Awards to be held in Dublin Castle on Saturday, October 11th.

Although all alumni are invited for logistical reason Limerick Youth Service is asking interested parties to contact Dermot Troy at [email protected] or at 061-412444/083-1726898

A member of Youth Work Ireland, Limerick Youth Service remains committed to supporting and encouraging young people to be active participants in shaping their futures.
