Breffni Integrated is working with Belturbet Community Development Association and Foróige to try and start a Foróige Club Youth Club in Belturbet. There are huge benefits for young people and for the town in setting up a new club.

We will be looking for people who are willing to train with a Foróige Development worker to be leaders of the club. Training is provided free of charge and becoming a leader can also help leaders gain new skills and work experience.
