Sixteen volunteer leaders representing Cork attended the 44th National Leaders’ Conference of Foróige, Ireland’s leading and largest youth organisation, which took place recently.

Almost 200 Foróige volunteer leaders from all over the country took part in the conference, themed ‘Youth Ready for the Future’, which was held in the Bloomfield House Hotel in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.

Paul Finn, a volunteer with the Barryroe Foróige Club in Bandon, was elected as the Honorary Secretary of the organisation.

He will now sit on the nine-person National Executive for the next two years.

Speaking after his election, Paul said: “Volunteers form the very backbone of Foróige and I’m delighted and humbled to be elected onto its governing body.”

New figures released at the conference show the organisation now works with 54,000 young people and 5,500 volunteers each year through a network of 600 clubs, 150 projects and national programmes such as Entrepreneurship, Citizenship and Leadership.
