Development Worker

The Angling and Tourism group have secured a Tus development worker. Thank you to Leitrim Development Company and Aiden Keegan - Tus supervisor.  The development worker is available to help our clubs, organisations and committees who cannot get round to admin work.  Help with admin work may allow organisations to move forward and progress with other ideas.  As most groups have volunteers, we hope that this new project may help.  This work could involve setting up data bases or sending out information regarding up and coming events.  Please email Breege at bmorecommunitytus@gmail.com giving basic details and we will arrange a meeting.
