CnD Community Café – always a welcome!

Since our last post, CnD Community Café has had a revamp and is looking splendid! Café Manager Jennifer Heffernan is making sure the Café space is as welcoming as possible, with a great and varied menu to choose from – all at affordable prices. Please note the new Café email address of

The Community Cafe at Cumann na Daoine offers a welcoming space to enjoy a cuppa or bite to eat in friendly, accessible surroundings. The menu is affordable and our talented chefs use local produce wherever possible.

Cafe manager Jennifer hopes that people will make use of the Café to find out more about activities at Cumann na Daoine and adds that local and national newspapers, as well as specialist magazines (Changing Ireland, Voice of the Traveller, Gay Community News) are available to read.

The Community Café also offers a new experience for groups who are holding meetings and events. Linked to Cumann na Daoine’s Main Hall, the Café can offer refreshments (including barista coffee) or pre-ordered lunches, to make your meeting go with a swing!

The Cafe’s involvement in the recent Le Cheile multicultural event was a great example of collaboration, with the Café providing backdrop for this Local Community Development initiative, delivered in partnership with LTI Culinary Skills students.
