Tígh Sayre’s Open Day this Friday

The Gort Family Resource Centre will host an Open Day in Tígh Sayre on Friday next, May 24thbetween 11am and 4pm. All are welcome and Councillor Joe Byrne will perform the official opening of the space at 3.30pm. Of course it’s also Market Day so a great opportunity to stock up on lots of fabulous locally made goods available just around the corner!

This New Kinvara Community Resource has been made possible by the generosity of the Shallow Family who have in memory of our friend, the late Sayre Shallow, made the ground floor space available to benefit the community.

Currently it is home to The Kinvara School of Traditional Music and Culture, with music classes for children twice a week.  Youth Work Ireland works with Teens from Seamount College on Tuesday Afternoons.  It has also been home to the recent Plastic Free Kinvara Exhibition and was used for Musical Events during the Cuckoo Fleadh.

Volunteers are kindly making  the space available for Internet Access, Printing and Directing  people from the community towards the wide range of supports, services and initiatives available in the area.

This Resource is for Young and Old.  If anyone is interested in utilizing the space, please email our Administrator Sandra administrator@gortfrc.com requesting a Room Usage Policy.  Once completed and returned to us it will be brought to our following Board of Management meeting for a decision.
