GOLD: Black­wa­ter Women’s Group

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - KERRY COMMUNITY AWARDS -

This group is go­ing from strength-to-strength. They op­er­ate in an area that has been badly af­fected by de­pop­u­la­tion and out-mi­gra­tion, but they con­tinue to be high-spir­ited, and are very wel­com­ing and in­clu­sive. Founded in 2002, the group pro­vides a board range of ac­tiv­i­ties, and is well-at­tuned to re­spond­ing to the needs of women of all ages in its catch­ment area. The group suc­cess­fully com­bines an em­pha­sis on ed­u­ca­tion and self-devel­op­ment with hav­ing fun and pro­mot­ing friend­ships. The fact that this group has no Com­mu­nity Cen­tre means its work is all the more re­mark­able with The Black­wa­ter Tav­ern cur­rently the fo­cal point for its ac­tiv­i­ties.
