My Town, My Plan – Shared Learning events – SAVE THE DATES

Please see below from Lish at Hincks.

Due to the current Government protocols, restrictions and guidelines relating to the Covid_19 pandemic and the uncertainty around any future restrictions that may or may not be imposed, a decision has been made to hold both Shared Learning events online.

The dates for the events remain as previously advised:

September 29    My Town, My Plan West Cork (Clonakilty, Kinsale, Rosscarbery and Skibbereen).

October 7            My Town, My Plan South Cork (Carrigaline, Cobh, Midleton and Youghal).

Both events will be live-streamed from 7pm. Schedules will proceed as originally planned with an exciting line up of speakers for each event.

The individual events will focus on the specific towns (as listed above) and the recorded videos from those towns will be shown. However, all participants from all towns are welcome to join us online for both events. I will be forwarding the full schedule of events / an e-booklet and details for registering in the next week or so.

On a separate note, we are currently making preparations for a press release to show-case the programme and to highlight the upcoming events. We would be delighted to include some input from participants. If anyone would like to contribute a short piece (100 words maximum) on their own personal experience of the programme, please forward to me at no later than next Monday, September 7, for consideration. Please include your name and your town.

Again, thanks to all for your hard work and your continued commitment to the programme. We are looking forward to ‘seeing’ you all at the long anticipated Shared Learning events.

In addition, please find attached a presentation from Ciaran Lynch for distribution to all My Town, My Plan participants. It is concerned with setting up new organisations and as to whether they register as a charity or not. Ciaran feels that he might have given the impression that it is a matter for the organisation to decide whether or not they register as a charity. However, that is not quite the case because if the requirements to be a charity are met then the organisation is expected to register. The attached gives some guidance on the subject.

If anyone has any queries, please contact me at as I am still working remotely.
