Organised by Garryowen Youth Project, the Halloween Fair saw people of all ages take part in events such as an egg & spoon race and dodgeball, while others decorated their face-masks ahead of All Hallows’ Eve.

‘It was an incredible day and a great way for us to celebrate Halloween and meet the community,’ said Gillian Boland, Limerick Youth Service.

‘We had three generations of families sharing stories and getting involved in the activities,’ said youth worker Gillian, Garryowen Youth Project.

The recently opened Garryowen Youth Project is a partnership between Limerick Youth Service & the Garryowen Community Development Project and is based at 23 John’s St, Limerick.

‘While we will have some groups our primary focus is detached youth work,’ explained Gillian adding, ‘we will be out and about the community engaging with young people at a time that suits them.’

Garryowen Community Development Project’s mission is to empower local people, to be actively involved in meeting the needs of their Community by working together.
