Tipperary hurling legend Eoin Kelly presented young Clonmel men Jake Murphy and Michael O’Connor with European Youthpass certificates in recognition of their participation in the community-based project Art for Us. “It is terrific to see these young men fulfil their potential. They should be very proud of their accomplishments and I am sure it will stand to them in the future”, he said.
The project was aimed at promoting life and leadership skills as well as creative, critical thinking and teamwork skills, while developing a sense of inclusion and community among young people. It also helped to build social interaction and a sense of pride within Cúirt an Rí and promote a positive image of the estate in the wider community.
