Cumann na Daoine

A community based organisation in Youghal, Co. Cork, Ireland.

Welcome to Youghal Pride by the Sea!

This year we’re following Covid19 guidelines so we won’t be meeting on the beach…but we are delighted to announce that Mayor of County Cork, Cllr Mary Linehan-Foley, will be raising the Rainbow Flag at the County Council Offices, The Mall, tomorrow at 11.30am. We welcome the Council’s support of the LGBT+ people of Youghal, East Cork and West Waterford, and the acknowledgement of this support is a visible demonstration of inclusivity and equality.

Tomorrow afternoon, Youghal Library staff will accept the donation of an LGBT+ Reference collection, which includes research reports, toolkits and books. This collection provides a focus point for LGBT+ studies and for information sharing. We are delighted that Youghal Library will be housing these publications and invite you all to take a look over the coming weeks.

Local businesses are also supporting Youghal Pride by the Sea, with the Old Imperial and Walter Raleigh Hotels flying their rainbow flags, and a number of businesses are proudly displaying their Youghal – supporting the LGBT+ Community’ stickers. Please support those who support us!

Cumann na Daoine, the development organisation for the LGBT+ Network, have provided ongoing support since Youghal Pride by the Sea started and we are proud to work alongside them in increasing visibility and services for LGBT+ people in the region.

On Saturday some Network members will be making a short film and that, along with images from the flag raising and library donation, will be up online this Saturday, 26th September at 6pm on this page.
