The Garage Programme

Pro-Social Ireland will be holding their closing ceremony of The Garage Project on Wednesday, January 27th.

The Garage Project formed part of Donegal County Council’s €5.5m Local Authority Action Plan. This Action Plan is funded through the EU’s PEACE IV Programme, which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). Match-funding has been provided by the Executive Office in Northern Ireland and the Department of Rural and Community Development in Ireland.

The underpinning purpose of this project was to deliver an important safety message each week to all the participants involved, focusing on the outcomes of losing control of an altered car, and about the importance of good driving behaviour and the consequences of poor behaviour on the road. This project brought young people from a range of diverse backgrounds together to work on their love for all things motoring.

Speakers on the day will include Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council Cllr. Rena Donaghey, Pro-Social Ireland’s Chairman, Mick Quinlivan, Donegal County Council Road Safety Officer, Brian O’Donnell, Tutor Mechanic, Denis Ferry, Tutor panel beater, Leslie O’Donnell, DYS Youth Worker Dominic McGlinchey and one young person who successfully completed the Garage Project.
