Ballyhoura Development staff are working hard to continue supporting all of our communities by phone, email and through our digital platforms, as we all practice physical distancing. We encourage you to stay in touch through our website and social media for updates on our current activities, or call your local office or Development Officer.

We will continue to adhere to HSE guidelines in terms of hygiene and social distancing and ask for your understanding during this difficult time.

Ballyhoura Development supports and collaborates with a wide range of organisations and groups, and we hope that the services and resources outlined here will be useful for communities and individuals across our area. This listing will be updated as new or updated resources become available.

We also compiled a list of all current supports available in terms of upskilling, resources and supports available through the Covid 19 Pandemic:
