'Ireland Reaching Out ' to expand in the Shannon Region

RTE's "The Business" with George Lee features Ireland Reaching Out. - The Ireland Reaching Out (Ireland XO) programme is stepping up a gear and rolling out into the whole of the Shannon Region in the coming months. Following a successful pilot in East Galway, the Shannon Region will be the first region in Ireland to be mobilized under the initiative. With the support of Shannon Development, Clare County Council and LEADER, there is the potential for over 376 parishes to participate in the programme. In the last two months, Shannon Development has facilitated numerous meetings to put structures in place to enable community involvement. Working with the LEADER groups across the Shannon region, the Ireland XO programme will engage with all interested parishes. Anyone with an interest in their community, its history, tourism, business or genealogy, is encouraged to get involved and learn more about the project. More info…
