Deputy Noel Coonan has welcomed the news that €20,000 in funding has been allocated to Tipperary Regional Youth Services towards the provision of a Youth Cafe in Templemore. The local Fine Gael TD said he is delighted the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs Frances Fitzgerald has responded positively to his strong lobbying for additional amenities in the town.
“We have been looking for a Youth Cafe for Templemore for some time. It is vital that we continue to provide services to the youth of our country and the young people living in Templemore and its environs are very deserving of this provision of funding and all the support we can give them,” said Noel.
This funding is part of the Youth Café Initiative and Deputy Coonan said the café will provide a safe and fun place for young people to meet. “It is exciting news that a modern facility will be provided in Templemore and I look forward to the project coming to fruition,” concluded Deputy Coonan.
