Solar Room - Askeaton Community Centre

This Thursday, May 19th sees the official launch of the Solar Room in the Askeaton Community Centre on May 19th. The Solar Room is a collaborative initiative between our SICAP programme, Limerick Youth Service and Foróige GYDP with support from members of the Askeaton Agency and Community Forum.

The name Solar was cleverly decided upon by the young people in Askeaton. Solar has two possible origins: it may derive from the Latin word solaris meaning sun, as it was often the room with the brightest aspect or it also has meaning as the room, that provided privacy for its occupants with comfort and status!!

The room, which will service as a focal point for projects and collaborative initiatives for the benefit of the Community will be officially launched at 4pm. If you are free, please drop in and say hello, and see the room and meet the staff from the three services who will be there on the day to tell you more.

This initiative is a collaboration between Foróige, Limerick Youth Service and SICAP. The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2018-2022 is funded by the Irish Government through the Department of Rural and Community Development and co-funded by the European Social Fund under the Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning (PEIL) 2014-2020.
