Laochra Chiarrai 2017

Forbairt na Dromada Teo (Dromid Community Development Company) has been selected to receive the Laochra Chiarrai Award which recognises exemplary leadership in community activity in the county.

Forbairt na Dromada Teo (Dromid Community Development Company)

10 kilometres east of Waterville on Kerry’s Iveragh peninsula, is the small parish of Dromid. Forbarit na Dromada Teo (Dromid Community Development Company) was established in 1996 when a number of parishioners recognised that isolation was detrimental to the area. Since then it has provided services to the local community such as child-care to Elderly Programmes, a Respite Service, Language Classes, Enterprise units and a Community Hall. The Cathaoirleach commented “Through so much voluntary work it changed the area forever in a positive way with all the excellent services and amenities it now provides”.

Oiche Chiarrai

The award will be presented to Forbairt na Dromada at the Association’s annual Oiche Chiarrai which will be held at the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin on Saturday, 4th March 2017.
