Adult Learners’ Festival in Scariff

As part of Adult Learners’ week three members from Scariff Brothers of Charity fronted an insightful presentation entitled S.O.U.L - "Scariff Outreach Unites Lives" in Scariff Public Library on Wednesday 26th February 2014. The three speakers, Brian Hogan, Liam Moloney and Emma Malone, spoke admirably about their involvement in the community and how the Brothers of Charity, the VEC and Scariff Library have helped them develop a wide range of skills as well as discover an important social outlet where they have made many strong friendships. Scariff Adult Literacy Club has become a meeting centre for the three groups and has been running successfully for the past 3 years, now approaching a membership of 20. It is run through the combined efforts of library staff member Aileen McDonagh, VEC coordinator Mary Mullane and several staff from the Scariff Brothers of Charity including Padraig Brody, Aoife McMahon, Mark Pearl, Michelle Murray and Ray Regan, all of whom provide unquantifiable support to all students. We are delighted with this year’s presentation and wish to extend a big well done to all involved.
