Members of Clare Comhairle na nÓg were presented with awards in recognition of their work on behalf of young people across the county during the past year.

Mayor of Clare, Cllr Michael Begley, and Mayor of Ennis, Cllr Clare Colleran Molloy made the presentation. It comes following a busy year for the ‘Youth Council’ whose work included conducting travel surveys across the county, hosting Icelandic visitors, attending Dáil na nÓg in Dublin, presenting to the Joint Oireachtas Committee, becoming Ambassadors for MacAfee Cyber Safety in Cork and running Workshops in NUIG Galway.

The group also hosted two successful AGM’s in Ennis and Spanish Point, presented to the Strategic Policy Committee (SPC) for Rural Development; provided input into the development of the Rural Development Strategy; made an appearance on RTÉ News; and participated in the Shoebox Appeal in support of the Mid West Suicide Prevention Action Plan – Connecting for Life!

Following the graduation ceremony at Áras Contae an Chláir, six Comhairle representatives travelled to the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin on invitation from the Taoiseach to the launch of the Action Plan for Online Safety. The invite was extended on foot of Clare Comhairle’s mentoring programme on Cyber safety with McAfee and their presentation to the Joint Oireachtas Committee earlier this year.

Saoirse Lightbourne, Hannah Alcock, Fionn Downey, Alexander Navarro, Claire King, Rachel Murphy, Téide Nolan and Eoin Kelly were some of those acknowledged by the Council.
