St. Mary's Youth and
Community Centre is a local voluntary organisation that provides a
full-time youth programme in the Tullamore area. The Youth Centre was
established in 1967 to promote the development of the young people aged 7
upwards in Tullamore and surrounding areas in Offaly.
St. Mary's Youth &
Community Centre is about providing a safe environment for young people of the
area to meet in an atmosphere which encourages them to develop as mature
adults. We discriminate against none, our policy being one of integration
across the social divide. We seek to empower young people to develop their
talents through games, musical productions, group interaction, competitions,
debating, trips etc. under the guidance of a core group of voluntary leaders &
staff. While youth is our priority St. Mary's Youth & Community Centre is
also available to various community and sporting groups.
