Youth Café at rear of St. Joseph’s Hall, Blessington
When the results of the Parish Survey (2002) were
analyzed, one of the major needs of the Parish was some social
venue for our young people to call their own. It has been said
by the young people themselves so often over the years that they
have “nowhere to go”.
after major effort by the St. Joseph’s Hall Committee and the Parish
Finance Committee, the New Youth Café is almost ready for
opening. Nearly €80,000 has been spent on providing this facility
with assistance from Wicklow Rural Partnership Ltd under the European
Union LEADER + / National Development Plan 2000-2006.
