Carlow County Development Partnership supports community development throughout the county, and values this way of working as it places people and communities first in the policies and activities which impact on their lives.
One of the aims under the SICAP Programme is help local community groups in designated parts of the county identify and respond to the developmental needs of their community. SICAP Development Worker Joanne Donohoe is working closely with the Tullow Road Community Development Group in a number of areas to strengthen the capacity of the group and identify events and activities which will benefit the whole community. On Sunday, 16th of July, a great day was had with over 600 people turning out for the free Family Play Day. With the sun shining, children laughing and the area alive with activity it was great to see the smiles on all the faces. A big congratulations to all involved in the organising with Count Carlow Development Partnership, including County Carlow Sports Partnership, Carlow Regional Youth Services and The Tullow Road Community Development Group. It made all the work worth it to see so many people having such a good time.
