New era in Community Employment schemes
On Monday, August 24th, nine directors, three supervisors and over forty participants
made their way to the Day Care Centre in Ballylanders for the
official launch of a new employment scheme, performed by Francis Hayes
from the Department of Social Protection, Limerick.
The initiative,known as the Coislea Community Employment Company, is the result of
malgamation of the Ballylanders, Kilbehenny and Galbally schemes,
and also includes the Anglesboro and Knockarron areas.
We are fortunate to have 14 excellent employees in this scheme, maintaining the grounds
of the Catholic church, the old and new Graveyards, and generally keeping the community
centre looking well.
